Linton Kwesi Johnson on Desert Island Discs

This from 2002, the mighty LKJ talking poetry, police and reggae on Desert Island Discs

Some great choices too… ska from Roy Richards and Don Drummond, as well as Vivaldi, John Lennon and Otis Redding.
Linton talks about what black kids and white working class kids have a common. When I was a lad ‘Sonny’s Lettah’ was a poem we all knew.
Linton, as ever, is insightful, thoughtful, measured and entertaining.
