Alan Johnson

Alan Johnson

From being transported by the sound of Bing Crosby on the radio as a small child living in condemned housing in West London in the late 1950s, to going out to work as a postman humming Watching the Detectives by Elvis Costello in 1977, former MP Alan Johnson’s life has always had a musical soundtrack.  In My Life vividly transports us to a world of Dansettes and jukeboxes, of heartfelt love songs and heart-broken ballads. From Dylan to Bowie, and Donegan to Springsteen, all of Alan’s favourites are here. As are his beloved Beatles, whom he has worshipped since 1963. Chaired by Nicola Meighan
