DBF favourite Alan Johnson is back to talk about the fourth instalment in his memoirs, In My Life, which tells the story of his life through the music that has inspired him along the way.

From being transported by the sound of ‘True Love’ by Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly as a small child in 1950s West London, to going out to work as a postman humming ‘Watching the Detectives’ by Elvis Costello in 1977, Alan’s life has always had a musical soundtrack. But this isn’t just a book about music: In My Life adds a fourth dimension to the story of Alan Johnson, the man.

Alan Johnson is a British Labour Party politician who served as both Home Secretary and Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer under the Blair and Brown governments.

Chaired by Steve Drayton, BBC Newcastle
