Chris Evans explains how his career started at Piccadilly Radio


In his first book, Chris Evans explains how he was so entranced by the crowds enjoying Pete Baker's Saturday show live from his home town of Warrington, and just had to get into the action himself.   


Read about how he persuaded Timmy Mallet to get into Piccadilly Radio and  how he got spectacularly fired from the radio station.

Timmy Mallet, the talented broadcaster and artist tells his story


This book details how Timmy cycled 2,500 miles from his home to Santiago de Compostela in memory of his brother Martin, who was born with Down’s syndrome and had died just a few days earlier. This was a journey of exploration, honouring Martin’s outlook on life that everyone can reach their potential.  He was blessed by letters of support from the Archbishop of York, the Bishops of Oxford and Winchester, the then Prime Minister Theresa May, Prince William and President Macron of France.

Full of unexpected moments, Timmy’s account of his pilgrimage along a route travelled by so many over the centuries weaves together history and biography in a hugely entertaining manner. It is undergirded by a touching faith and conveys, beyond all else, how important it is to live every moment of every day.

Mark Radcliffe started his career at Piccadilly Radio, and in this book he searches for the moments that changed music


Standing at the crossroads – the Mississippi crossroads of Robert Johnson and the devil’s infamous meeting – Mark Radcliffe found himself facing his own personal juncture. Aged sixty, he had just mourned the death of his father, only to be diagnosed with mouth and throat cancer. Together these events led Radcliffe to think about pivotal tracks in music and how the musicians who wrote and performed them had reached the crossroads that led to such epoch-changing music.

Crossroads is a warm, intimate account of music and its power to transform our lives, as Radcliffe takes a personal journey through these key tracks.
