Our guest is politician and author, Dame Angela Eagle MP.
Angela tells us about her love of Elvis Costello’s music, from listening to the copy of Armed Forces she bought as a present for her sister through to joining him on stage to spin the wheel.
She discusses the political aspect of Costello’s songs and reveals how Elvis’s father played a role in her parents getting together.
Angela also talks us through the five EC songs she’s added to our Dangerous Amusements playlist.
Dangerous Amusements is a podcast where we chat about the music of Elvis Costello.
On each episode, a guest talks all things EC with Stu Arrowsmith and helps to compile the ultimate Elvis Costello playlist.
