Word Podcast 276 – you’ll never get Armando Iannucci on the dance floor

Armando Iannucci’s “Hear Me Out” is a collection of pieces about his first love, classical music. He decided early on that the Deep Purple and Lou Reed records favoured by his older brother didn’t speak to him in the way that Holsts’s Planet Suite did. His book explains why. In this wide ranging chat with Mark and David Armando talks about how it felt to not share the general enthusiasm for the sound of now and what he says to people when they try to get him on the dance floor at parties.
