Shameless self plug

Last week, I interviewed Steve Lillywhite - the British producer behind such era-defining records as U2's Achtung Baby, Morrissey's Vauxhall and I and The La's eponymous debut album.

He was talking about the three years he spent behind the mixing desk (and playing bicycles with knives) on U2's first three albums, Boy, October and War - which are all being re-released next week.

The finished piece, complete with archive footage of Adam Clayton's afro and The Edge without a hat on, is over at the BBC website and it is really rather good if I do say so myself.

While you're with the Beeb, have a squizz at this piece about Delia Derbyshire. She's the visionary composer who made all the whooshes and swizzles for the original series of Doctor Who. An unbelievably brilliant woman.
