Reflections on American president Donald Trump’s visit to the UK and how he was based in London but spent less time there than his blow-up effigy! Along the way you’ll encounter everything from A to Zen: airborne food mixers, buddleia, parts of London inspired (or owned) by the monarch, lots of things in north west London or north west of London and a Zen Buddhist anecdote.
Another in Adrian’s occasional monologue strand, Letter from London, written by him.
George Michael, singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer died on Christmas Day 2016. Here Adrian reflects on Michael’s work and their shared London roots, together with a couple of occasions when their paths crossed.
From his odd-jobbing in Watford to his stadium-filling stardom, the sweep of Michael’s career, and the nature of fame itself is examined in this audio essay.
