Margaret Throsby has spent much of the past twenty-four years talking and listening to the rich, the famous, the quirky, the wise, and the thoroughly entertaining discuss their lives and favourite music on national radio. As listeners we are drawn in - eavesdroppers to a seemingly private conversation that knows no boundaries. We are drawn along by the music and the thread of the ideas, and the laughter and sadness that tumbles out in often revelatory detail. Join Oliver Sacks, Pat Dodson, Fiona Wood, Michael Leunig, Billy Bragg, Paul Keating, Pauline Nguyen, Patricia Routledge, John le Carr , Bill Henson, Jonathan Franzen, Gerry Adams, Chris Patten, Maureen Dowd, David Malouf, Lincoln Hall, Brenda Blethyn and Jeffery Tate as they share their thoughts and conjure up their beguiling narratives.
