Ok Zone Castaways, now is your opportunity to share the stuff that the castaways on Desert Island Discs do each week.

Pretty simple really, you have to choose eight recordings (usually, but not always, music), a book and a luxury item that you would take if you were to be cast away on a desert island . They say that tastes in music and literature tells a lot about a person, I’m not sure if that is true but it will be interesting to see what people will choose. Also a few words as why the luxury item is essential to you on the ‘island’.

I’ll kick off with:

Discs –
Mike and the Mechanics – Word of Mouth (never tire of this track)
Joe ****er – Delta Lady
Janis Ian – At Seventeen
Disturbed – Sound of Silence
Meatloaf – Paradise by the dashboard light
Rick Astley – Keep singing
The Beatles – Penny Lane
Focus – Hocus Pocus

That was really hard, I love the Jam, but not one track made my final list.

Book – Again, really difficult but I’ve settled for ‘Forgotten Voices of the Somme' by Joshua Levine. This book made me realise the sacrifices that so many made in the 1[SUP]st[/SUP] World War.

Finally the luxury item. – A̶ ̶j̶e̶t̶ ̶s̶k̶i̶.̶ ̶I̶’̶v̶e̶ ̶a̶l̶w̶a̶y̶s̶ ̶w̶a̶n̶t̶e̶d̶ ̶a̶ ̶g̶o̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶o̶n̶e̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶i̶f̶ ̶I̶’̶m̶ ̶s̶t̶u̶c̶k̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶a̶ ̶d̶e̶s̶e̶r̶t̶ ̶i̶s̶l̶a̶n̶d̶,̶ ̶w̶h̶y̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶?̶ Solar powered fridge stocked with Cloudy Bay sauvignon blanc.

There is a risk that this thread could crash and burn, through apathy but we will see.
