Singer Debbie Harry, whose group Blondie sold more than thirty million albums, joins Kirsty Young to choose her Desert Island Discs.
Kirsty Young's castaway is the singer Debbie Harry.
Her group Blondie started out in seedy New York bars and went on to achieve international success - selling tens of millions of albums along the way. She was ultra cool - a striking beauty with platinum hair and a sneer. Now aged 65, her trademark look continues to serve her well, she says: "As far as ageing goes it's rough - I try my best - I'm healthy and I exercise like a fiend. I'm glad that I've had all the radical experiences in my life - it suits me."
