Will Hodgkinson

A definitive, in-depth exploration of mainstream pop in 1970s Britain. While bands such as Pink Floyd, Queen and Fleetwood Mac were ruling the albums chart, the singles chart was swinging to the tune of million-selling blockbusters by the likes of Brotherhood of Man, the Sweet and the Wombles.

Will Hodgkinson is author of the music books Guitar Man, Song Man, The Ballad of Britain and the childhood memoir The House is Full of Yogis. He is a regular contributor to The Guardian, Mojo and Vogue, and presented the Sky Arts television series Songbook. Since 2010, he has been chief rock and pop critic for The Times.

Andy Miller is presenter of the popular Backlisted podcast series.
