One thought on “CW on Desert Island Discs, 1978

  1. Reblogged this on The SerialFrozenLinear Blog and commented:
    Colin Wilson is perhaps the most definitive English thinker and writer of modern times. It’s never dull to hear the man speak and speak he does on this BBC Desert Island Discs podcast from 1978. He is the writer of superb books on the outsider, religion and the occult in society and has produced well in excess of one hundred non-fiction, fictional and biographical studies across a career that began with his ‘The Outsider’ published in 1956. Quaff deeply, taste eternally.
