Michael Berkeley's guest is agony aunt, novelist and comedian Virginia Ironside. Her choices include Schubert, Strauss, Paul McCartney and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.
Agony aunt, novelist and stand-up Virginia Ironside talks to Michael Berkeley about her favourite music, the Swinging Sixties, ukuleles, and growing old disgracefully.
Virginia has worked for pretty much every British national newspaper, and currently answers readers' dilemmas in the Independent as well as writing a monthly column for the Oldie and a series of books - full of warmth and humour - about the perils and joys of getting older.
And she's playing the Edinburgh Festival with her one woman show Growing Old Disgracefully.
Her favourite music includes Schubert, Strauss, Paul McCartney, and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, of which her son is a member.
