Desert Island Discs: Featuring Lifetime Office Administrator Elaine North:
The eight songs I’ve chosen all remind me of growing up and my teenage years.
I loved the era of music that these songs come from – and it has always stuck with me.
When I hear these songs they always make me feel happy and I’m always up dancing to them!
I have been lucky enough to see the following in concert: The Specials, Madness, The Police and 10CC.
The others are on my ‘To Do List’, if I get the chance!
So here you go, my eight Desert Island Discs!
Disc One: Going Underground – The Jam
Disc Two: Beat Surrender – The Jam
Disc Three: Too Much Too Young – The Specials
Disc Four: Atomic – Blondie
Disc Five: Airport – The Motors
Disc Six: Baggy Trousers – Madness
Disc Seven: Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic – The Police
Disc Eight: I’m Not In Love – 10cc
Choice of book: Foraging, The Essential Guide to Free Wild Food, by John Lewis Stempel.
I would need this book or I would probably poison myself on the desert island!
Luxury Item: A wind-up radio with LED torch.
