The Independent has a story on its website about presenter Kirsty Young stepping down, for medical reasons, from her role of interviewer for the BBC Radio 4 programme 'Desert Isand Discs'. It lists - presumably in their view - her Top 10 interviews,on DID. It says "The Smiths frontman is uncharacteristically chirpy in his interview with Young, talking about his relative ease with life aged 50 and how he’s “very glad indeed” he didn’t grow up to be normal."
The article says that Kirsty Young recorded 496 DID interviews. The Independent put Morrissey's in her Top 10. See how Independent hates Morrissey?
They certainly were happier times when that interview was recorded.
