Music to Die For

Last Saturday BBC Radio 4 kicked off an awesome series hosted by Ian Rankin where he, along with other noted crime writers like John Harvey, Mark Billingham, John Connolly, Robert Crais, George Pelecanos, James Sallis and Karin Slaughter, talk about how music has had a profound influence on their writing.

The next 2 installments will air on the 11th and 18th, which promise to be just as good as the first program. (Although thanks to Crais, now that infernal “Wang Chung” is stuck in my head. Curses!!!) Check it out.
