Johnnie Walker’s Guest Night (Universal Quidem)

By | Published on Sunday 4 August 2013

Radio veteran Johnnie Walker drew in a large crowd for his opening night, the only night of his interview series in which Walker is himself the interviewee. Full of hard-core fans, the room was instantly drawn in by Walker’s undeniable charm. Never afraid to discuss a taboo, the radio star’s conversation ranged from his childhood and pirate radio days to threesomes and a love/hate relationship with the BBC. Unfortunately for the interviewer, Walker dominated the stage, commanding the entire process. But the audience still gained a brief but brilliant insight into Walker’s rockstar-esque radio DJ life and his pure love of music, all of which left behind a positive message of self-expression. With interviewees such as Steven Berkoff, Reginald D Hunter and KT Tunstall in the line-up for this show, each edition is set to be unique yet wildly entertaining.

New Town Theatre, until 25 Aug, 6.15pm.
