Martin Freeman on Desert Island Discs

It’s been anounced (or more like found) that Martin is expected to appear next Sunday (March 31st) on the podcast/radio show from BBC Radio 4 “Desert Island Discs”.

The roughtly 40 minutes’ show’s premise is: “Eight tracks, a book and a luxury: what would you take to a desert island? A castaway guest shares the soundtrack of their lives.” So expect to get some more of Martin’s favourite tracks some are probably going to be included in the upcoming “Soul on the Corner” compilation that’s going to come out on May.

How can you listen to it? Several ways:
