This week Andrew’s old boss DAVID HEPWORTH of Word, Q and Live Aid fame comes in to discuss his book ‘Uncommon People: The Rise And Fall Of The Rock Stars’, out now in paperback. Are rock stars really finished, and did Dave fiddle the scores so he didn’t have to write about Liam Gallagher?

Plus fellow guest ANNA FIELDING of Stylist magazine piles in to look at IDRIS ELBA’S new comedy ‘In The Long Run’, dissect the latest LP by fun-with-depression rock hermits EELS, and confess to the album that only she likes. Clue: ratty dreads.

It’s all in the pop culture podcast for discerning dilettantes, co-presented by Siân Pattenden and Andrew Harrison. Audio production by Sophie Black. Bigmouth is a Podmasters Production.
