It's the My Favorite Album book club for the next month, trading musicians in for authors of the most exciting books about music and musicians. We kick things off with Will Birch, founding member of The Kursaal Flyers turned journalist and biographer, on his new book 'Cruel to Be Kind', the definitive look at the legendary Nick Lowe's life and career. We talk about Nick's late career reinvention of his sound and image, the infamous Brinsley Schwartz press launch fiasco, Nick's relationship with Elvis Costello, how What's So Funny 'Bout Peace Love and Understanding ended up on the Bodyguard soundtrack, the process of writing the book and much more.
