Hear Chris Difford’s 1974 Diary
If you haven’t yet caught up with Chris Difford’s 1974 diary in the hit BBC radio series My Teenage Diary, listen here.
“My diaries in those days were mainly stolen from Boots the Chemist…”
There is also a recent 2021 interview with Chris Difford, Mark Ellen and David Hepworth as part of the Word In Your Ear series with nods to Difford’s acclaimed autobiography, Some Fantastic Place, in the conversation.

As Squeeze prepares for new fan requests from an album which first hit the British Top 20 four decades ago, some of the stories behind the recording are worth revisiting. This is from the Elvis Costello biography, Complicated Shadows. (And yes, the single broke through and became a modern classic). The Ladykillers tour with Madness is on sale now.
