Radio 3’s much-loved cabaret of the word returns to the Radio Theatre on Friday 6 May.
Poet, broadcaster and Bard of Barnsley Ian McMillan presides as Chris Difford, one half of the influential and well-loved Squeeze, performs some of his solo work. Having written songs for more than thirty years and won two Ivor Novello Awards, Chris Difford’s something of an expert on the craft of songwriting and for The Verb, he shares his insights.
The novelist Jane Harris, author of The Observations, reads a specially commissioned piece and Verb regular Toby Litt turns his attention to aphorisms, with the help of a tap dancer and a wooden board.
