Radio 4

After 69 years on air, the makers of ‘Desert Island Discs’ are to open up the choice of records to its listeners. Some of the public’s choices will be played on a 90 minute special show celebrating the series which will be broadcast on 3 Jun.

Presenter Kirtsy Young said: “Every castaway is unique, but the one thing they all say to me is how difficult it is to choose their eight discs. Now the nation has a chance to share in the agony and ecstasy of making their very own selection”.
