I had heard of the concept eons ago but it wasn't until I was talking with my friend Simon that it really registered that is was a radio program... on a popular station in a country I lived in for five years. :-/ Simon has the patience of a saint.
Anyways... I've decided to make my own desert island selections. I practically live on one already.
Difficult, ain't it? I've done it with albums... but with just pieces of music, that's very difficult. But here's my list (for now) (subject to change) (many times).
What are YOUR desert island discs?
BTW - if you haven't already found Grooveshark, it's great.
