Conversation, photos and music


Stony Tracks is like Desert Island Discs, but with photos of the guests life on the big screen, and the guest chooses 10 pieces of music rather than the 8 on the radio.
I believe that everyone's life is interesting, and my hope is that you'll come to the shows irrespective of whether you know the guest or not.
The shows are on the second Wednesday of most months in the Beechey Room at York House.
* At the preceding show.
* In person from York House & Odell's.
*  Online at www.wegottickets.com (50p booking fee).
N.B. Only 10 tickets at a time are allocated to wegottickets, (more will be added as necessary) the rest are on sale from York House & Odell's - cash only please.

I got the idea for Stony Tracks when I was at a festival in 2017 and there were a couple of 'Desert Island Disc' events featuring artists who were performing at the festival.
I've built on the concept by using PowerPoint to show photo's of the guest's lives, and play the tracks from YouTube if available.
I don't impose The Bible & The Complete Works of Shakespeare on the guests, but of course some guests do choose them.

At Pat Nicholson's show, he presented me with a poem he'd written about his take on how Stony Tracks started. See photo.
