Desert Island Discs


Desert Island Discs is a longrunning popular programme on BBC Radio 4. A guest shares details of the eight records they would take with them to a desert island. They also tell the audience about the book they would take with them, and a luxury.
When Emmylou Harris was on the programme she chose a blank book as her book, and a library as her luxury.
