Peter HookOctober is a great month for music and film lovers. First up is former Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook reading his own book Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division.  In Peter’s own unique style he talks candidly and gives a fascinating insight into history of the ground-breaking and hugely influential Joy Division, from their first rehearsal and gig to the untimely death of lead singer Ian Curtis which led to their break-up. This is a warts-and-all account giving a great insight to the inner workings of this amazing band.

Following this we have Philip Norman’s simply titled Mick Jagger. 2012 marks 50 years since the formation of the Rolling Stones and there’s no better reason to look at the life and times of their legendary front man Mick Jagger. Philip Norman has done sterling work on previous music biographies, including the acclaimed John Lennon: The Life (also available from and his take on the life of Mick Jagger adheres to his high standard. Expertly researched, bringing fresh insight and revelatory tales, Mick Jagger really gets into the soul of Jagger’s character.

And for film fans we have two episodes from Sir David Frost’s recent Radio 2 series Hollywood Greats. Sir David Frost, the broadcasting legend, needs no introduction and we join him as he expertly prizes nuggets of interview gold from two Hollywood legends – Shirley MacLaine and Sir Michael Caine. Shirley MacLaine discusses being the poster girl for the Rat Pack, reveals how her open relationship with her husband, Steve Parker, affected both their lives and talks about her beliefs in UFOs and reincarnation. Michael Caine speaks about the brother he never knew and reveals how he chased his wife-to-be, Shakira, after seeing her in a Maxwell House television ad!

That’s it for this month – enjoy!
