Not quite A Long Walk with Chris Difford but a dry drive around Deptford and Greenwich
In this episode of A Long Walk With... Janice Long joined Squeeze lyricist and founder member/performer Chris Difford on a very, very stormy and wet day in South London; so they didn't walk, but Chris very kindly drove Janice around important places in his life, in the Blackheath and Greenwich areas.
They talked about his battles with addiction and depression, his deep friendships with Glenn Tilbrook and Jools Holland and discovered how he was inspired to write songs like Up The Junction, Take Me I'm Yours, Labelled With Love and Cool For Cats.
Here's some highlights and extra interview material that we didn't have time for in the show, plus some photos of the places they passed - including Tranquil Vale, Blackheath Village, The Greenwich Maritime Museum and the nearby foot tunnel.
Join Janice on her long walks every Thursday at 9pm on Radio 2 or listen on the Radio 2 website or iPlayer Radio app.
