Tales from the riverbank
Earlier this year Baxter Dury had me round to his flat on the River Thames – the home that he’d grown up in, where his father, Ian Dury, would generally upset the neighbours. Baxter now lives there once again with his son Cosmo.
It was a hot day so we decided to record this episode of Midnight Chats on the balcony on the river, watching the cars cross Hammersmith Bridge and posh people row on the water. It was the most idyllic setting for all 60 of our episodes so far, and not even talk of Face Off or suicide could ruin that.
