A politician’s personal playlist.

From postman to politician to award-winning author, Alan Johnson’s life has been to the soundtrack of his beloved popular music – from Dylan to Bowie, from Lonnie Donegan to Bruce Springsteen, and The Beatles, whom he has worshipped since 1963. In his latest memoir, In My Life, Alan vividly transports us to a world of Dansettes and jukeboxes, of heartfelt love songs and heart-broken ballads, of smoky coffee shops and dingy dance halls that is no longer with us.
