Richard Williams has been writing about music since the late 60s, initially for the Melody Maker, then The Times and most recently on his own blog The Blue Moment. He’s also been an A&R man for Island Records, a presenter of Old Grey Whistle Test and a sports writer. He’s written books about Phil Spector, Bob Dylan and Ayrton Senna and been described as “Britain’s best rock writer”.
Kate Mossman was the reviews editor of The Word and is now working for The New Statesman. Kate likes jazz-rock, Queen and all sorts of things a person her age isn’t supposed to.
For this special Word In Your Ear evening David Hepworth is giving Kate and Richard some categories, asking them to come up with records to play and talk about. He says “this is the kind of thing we always wanted to do on the Word podcast but we were prevented by copyright. I think people will really enjoy this. And if they don’t, well it’ll be over in ninety minutes and you can just enjoy an evening down the Betsey Trotwood.”
This will take place in the upstairs room at the Betsey Trotwood, which is on Farringdon Road (nearest Tube: Farringdon) and offers a fine selection of beers and wines. Tickets are just five pounds if you get yours now.
