Travels With My Radio

(Pocket)
Beskrivelse:

Fi Glover is a bit of a traveller. She loves hotels, air stewardesses and fluffy towelling robes, but above all, she loves radio. One night, whilst recording BBC 2's "Travel Show", she found herself in the far reaches of Texas, suffering from a night of line-dancing and an over-enthusiastic radio DJ. She started to wonder about all the places she'd ended up in, all the radio DJs she'd listened to, the way a new radio station made her feel at home and yet gave her the fastest insight into an alien city or community. She decided to take a journey around the world collecting hotel freebies and DJs - from the charismatic Rose who guided Montserrat through the tragedy of their volcanic eruption to Dr Laura, who talks the dysfunctional of New York through their psychotic days; from the peace-keeping corps of Beirut and their radio-station-in-a-hut to the despairing English football broadcasters in their radio-station-above-a-caf- in Brussels 2000. From Somerset to Beirut, Las Vegas to Vienna, "Travels With My Radio" is a wonderfully funny and strangely moving quest to find the perfect radio station.
