God Is in the Radio

By Barney Hoskyns
God Is in the Radio by Barney Hoskyns digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

God is in the Radio gathers 50 pieces from 40 years of writing passionately about music. A former mainstay of NME and Mojo – and author of such acclaimed books as Hotel California and Small Town Talk – Barney Hoskyns hymns the artists that have thrilled and moved him most, from Frank Sinatra to Amy Winehouse, via the Cocteau Twins and Queens of the Stone Age. Together with acts as varied as Laura Nyro and Luther Vandross, Burial and Bobby Womack, these are the “unbridled enthusiasms” that – for Hoskyns – dissolve the rationalisation of feeling, producing a sense of rapture that borders on religious ecstasy. Spanning multiple decades and moments of music history, and containing personal reflections as well as recommendations, this is a poignant and evocative must-read book from one of the UK’s foremost music writers.
