About the Author

Matt Everitt is BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 2 presenter, journalist, music consultant and producer. He presents 6 Music's The Music Week, appears on air daily as part of the Shaun Keaveny Breakfast Show and heads 6 Music's daily Music News coverage and produces and presents The First Time on 6 Music.


"Everitt (Where's My Welly? andThe World's Greatest Music Festival Challenge), host of the radio show The First Time With... on BBC Radio 6 Music, collects 40 of his favorite interviews with critically acclaimed musicians from the 1960s to the 2000s. Each inspiring entry contains a few pull quotes, a collage, and a playlist. The design is vibrant, with album covers lining each page. Subjects such as Pete Townshend, Yoko Ono, and Florence Welch answer questions on a variety of firsts: the first time they were aware of music as a kid, the first record they owned, first musical influences, first concerts, and first musical experiences. Artists also discuss early career memories and conclude by choosing one last song to play.A delight for browsers; put this eye-catching title on display and watch it fly off the shelves."-Library Journal
