The dazzling, dynamic and delightful DJ duo Amber and Nisha who together make up Broken Hearts (surely the world's most stylish DJs) have invited me onto their weekly JazzFM radio show 'Peppermint Candy'. This goes out on JazzFM tonight April 19 between 6-7pm (GMT) but after that it is available whenever you want to listen on the JazzFM site.
Nisha, Amber and I will be talking about Zooties, the 40s, Jazz (natch), influence of the baby boom, street style, Hipsters, and, as always on this show, there's some great music including 'Swing' gems to get your foot tapping. 
Be there or be square.
