Overview

Reflections on 21 years behind the microphone at one of Radio National's flagship programs, Late Night Live, the people and the places which made it the cutting edge radio it continues to be today. For 21 years Phillip Adams has been the witty, smooth and informed voice of Late Night Live on ABC Radio National. In the studio he bats questions to world leaders, thinkers, ideologues, crackpots and gurus. But what about the stories that don't make it to air? the ones about the guests who don't behave, the tricky questions that must be asked, the interviewees who don't pause for breath or - worse - who refuse to speak? Here, Phillip shares the secrets of his radio days from when he was looked upon as a commercial upstart to when Henry Kissinger, Christopher Hitchens, Kevin Rudd and so many others have lined up to be interviewed by him. He reflects on the sometimes comic, sometimes poignant, sometimes fraught art of putting together live radio, for a show where anything could happen and almost everything has.
