Following the BBC's 76 year old formula: imagine that you were ship-wrecked, washed up alone on a desert island, and found that the only possessions with you were eight discs from your record collection, one book (not including The Bible or Shakespeare, which are already there on the island) and one luxury item of no practical use. Which eight records would you choose, and why? If a rogue wave then came and washed away all but one, which would you hope to keep? Which one book would you choose? What luxury item would console you most?
