The Escapism Artist with Stephen McCole

On the show Stephen will chat to some of Scotland's finest actors, directors, writers and artist to find out what art gets them going, what they grew up listening to, reading and watching. What authors, film makers and musicians do they turn to for an escape.

The guests pick the songs, recommend books and films for the listener. I think this is a great way for the listener and myself of getting to know the guest. Occasionally Stephen will be doing soundtrack and theme tune specials.
