Johnny Marr on Vinyl Revival, Series 1
- BBC Radio 6 Music, Sun 18 Dec 2011

Journalist and record collector Pete Paphides continues his tour of the record collections of musicians. This week, he rifles through Johnny Marr's vinyl, spotting tracks from Iggy Pop, David Bowie and The Animals.

Johnny reveals how he first bonded with Morrissey over a box of 7 inches, the start of a great songwriting partnership that would create classic hits over The Smiths' five year lifespan. Throughout his music career, Marr has challenged his skills as a player and a composer and drawn on a diverse gallery of influences. He reveals some of acts he has "borrowed" riffs from.

I always suspected that Johnny was seduced by Moz's 7 inches.

A good show on the whole. It got better towards the end, with one or two unusual tracks, including a great 60s Italian Morricone pop classic and a late 90s b-side by a band called Arturo. There was one strange part, where the presenter seemed initially to be asking Marr if he had always been faithful to his wife, before finally making it through to the end of the sentence where it became clearer that he was talking about Marr's perceived (in some quarters) musical promiscuity. It was a curious observation made badly, to the point it sounded momentarily that Marr was wondering of he was going to have to chin the idiot.

Sounds like a strange exchange! What did the guy actually say?
