STOP PRESS!!! John's new radio play Deceit, Desire and the Viking Helmet is due for broadcast on Radio 4 on Tuesday 20 December at 2.15pm, and will be available thereafter on BBC Iplayer. Inspired by a poem by Anthony Thwaite, it's a surreal and tragi-comic love story in which John himself stars alongside Graham Fellowes.
There's now masses of interesting stuff about John's Islington connection in a blog called Islington Faces. Who knew that our man was once in a production of The Pajama Game directed by Simon Callow?
John's programme about his relationship with the French Baroque composer Jean-Philippe Rameau Who Does John Hegley Think He Is? can also be found here or via the app. It will be available until midnight on 31 December January 2098 so be sure to put that date in your diary to be certain you don't miss it.
And the latest addition to John's list of favourite picks is the Hat in the Cat Hat Shop in Perth. See links in John's Picks below.
