On Saturday 25th October 1980, Catherine Gaskin was a guest on the popular Radio 4 programme Desert Island Discs.
Catherine was interviewed by the series creator and original presenter, Roy Plomley. The full programme as it was originally broadcast no longer exists, but a version from the British Library’s radio collection is available to listen to, and to download and keep.
This programme is a rare treat for fans of Catherine Gaskin. It’s a chance to hear her tell the story of her life and career in her own words, and to listen to the music which meant most to her.
