Excellent radio programme to mark the golden 'jubilee' of Queen Ziggy...

...If you can tune out the awful narration inserts by Toyah Wilcox, reading as if English is her 3rd language, reminding us all that she was once a laughable 'actress'... The rest is wonderful, with many actual rarities {Aylesbury September '71 tape, 'Ziggy' interview backstage at TotP, audio clips from the RCA NYC 1972 press conference, interviews with Kris Needs, Tris Penna, Ken Scott, Marc Almond and more}

Moz reference from Kris Needs, who refers to an early fan club letter from a Steven Morrissey of Manchester seen by him...

Looking forward to the book too.
Having said that, í noticed this morning that numerous retailers are showing a new September 2022 publication date...?

Please. God. Noooo

Gotcha. Available via Waterstones site... ⚡⚡
