Garry Kasparov will be Kirsty Young's guest on "Desert Island Discs"
at 11.15 on Radio 4 this coming Sunday, the 28th of January.
Desert Island Discs has been running in one format or another
since 1942. I always try to catch it on a Sunday morning.
You hear some fantastic tracks and the reason behind the
choice is often enlightening, revealing and surprising.
(a lot of politicians seem to have been fans of Rock n Roll..)
"Each week a guest, called a 'castaway' during the programme, is asked
to choose eight recordings (usually, but not always, music), a book and
a luxury item that they would take if they were to be cast away on a
desert island, whilst discussing their lives and the reasons for their choices"
Be interesting to hear what 8 songs and book Gary chooses.
His luxury item might be a chess computer (Deep Blue).
