WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Andy Kershaw truly has no off switch. Already he's lived ten lives to everyone else's one. As a teenager, he was promoting major rock gigs. He was Billy Bragg's driver and roadie one day and presenting Whistle Test and Live Aid the next. A born rebel and a maverick, he's combined his passion for music with a lunatic curiosity and an instinct for frontline journalism, reporting for the BBC and the broadsheets from the world's most extreme countries - Iraq, North Korea (he's been four times), Haiti, Angola and Rwanda during the genocide.
