Simon Mayo first started presenting the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show in 1988. As part of his show, he invited his listeners to share with him their deepest darkest secrets, and the letters came flooding in. Every day, he read out a confession – be it about an unsuspecting goat, a runaway milk float, or even an incident with Uncle Eric's ashes – before deciding whether or not to grant his forgiveness.
Twenty years later, Simon presents the daily Drivetime show on BBC Radio 2 – and the confessions segment is back. Now those guilty listeners who missed their chance first time around have joined with a whole new generation of sinners in begging for clemency from Father Mayo. Their confessions are as hilarious as ever.
Drivetime Confessions is a brand new collection of the best (and worst) letters and emails from Simon’s ever popular radio show.
