Good to hear that Andy Kershaw is back presenting a new show called 'Music Planet' with Lucy Duran on BBC Radio 3 (thursdays 9pm till 10pm). I do hope we get something like his old programme back eventually. A great world folk music champion has returned for good, I hope !

7 out of 8 safely stashed away on my hard drive! Nice to hear Andy back at his acerbic best! My conundrum is that the BBC can afford to send two teams of people around the world for an esoteric (nonetheless fascinating) series of programmes, but won't support a programme like Folkwaves, which is cheap as chips!
I feel that some of the financing of the trips would have come from TV. Radio doesn't have that sort of budget.
Nevermind, a fascinating listen to be sure.

His book No Off Switch is due out later this year.

"Radio DJ, travel journalist and world music pioneer Kershaw speaks on breakdowns, break-ups and broadcasting. One year Andy Kershaw was Billy Bragg's roadie, the next he was presenting "Live Aid" on TV to 400 million people.

He is a passionate enthusiast for music and a man with an obsessive curiosity about the world. Over the next 25 years, he worked for "The Rolling Stones", shared an office with John Peel, and introduced world and roots music to radio 1 (and later Radio 3). He also filed a lot of reports for radio 4, majoring in "The Axis of Evil".

Most recently, his marriage disastrously broke down, which led to his spending time in prison on the Isle of Man for breaking a restraining order. Andy Kershaw writes about all of this with candour, insight and immediacy. This is a real book by a man who has no truck with celebrity nonsense."
