Wilko on Radio 4 tonight
There's a poignant but also strangely upbeat interview with Wilko Johnson on Radio 4's Front Row tonight at 7.15pm. Diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer Wilko says: "Right now it's just fantastic, it makes you feel alive. Just walking down the street you really feel alive. Every little thing you see, every cold breeze against your face, every brick in the road, you think 'I'm alive, I'm alive'. I hope I can hang onto that. I've had a fantastic life. When I think about the things that have happened to me and the things I've done, I think anybody who asks for more would just be being greedy. I don't wanna be greedy."
