Desert Island Discs with waltonwagner Director Jane Wagner

Desert Island Discs - Jane WagnerFollowing the resounding success of our previous blog series – where we asked every member of our team a series of quick-fire questions in the hope of helping you get to know us a little bit better – we are back with a brand new feature.

This year, team WW are taking on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, a popular radio programme in which guests are asked to choose eight recordings, a book and a luxury item that they would take with them if they were to be cast away on a desert island.

To kick off the series, we are joined by waltonwagner Director Jane Wagner – read on to find out what Jane’s choices were.

1) You can bring 8 of your favourite songs to the island – which ones would you pick and why?

1. Heart of Glass – Blondie. (It reminds me of hanging out after school in the arcade.)
2. Oops Upside Your Head – The Gap Band. (Nights in Macclesfield’s only night club.)
3. Rip It up and Start Again – Orange Juice. (Playing pool with my first serious boyfriend.)
4. Don’t You Want Me – Human League. (Years in Sheffield at college.)
5. Arrival of the Queen of Sheba – Handel. (I came out of church to this at my wedding.)
6. The Carnival is Over – The Seekers. (This will be one of my funeral songs.)
7. The Blower’s Daughter – Damian Rice. (It’s just haunting.)
8. I Don’t Feel Like Dancing – Scissor Sisters (It just makes me dance – and one of the guitarists looks like Nick Walton!)

2) You can bring one book with you (to accompany the Bible or another religious work, and the complete works of Shakespeare, both of which you automatically get) – which book would you bring?

Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks.

3) You can also have one luxury item, which has to be inanimate and can’t help you escape the island or allow communication from outside. What item would you take with you?

A pair of binoculars.
