God is in the Radio | Launch Events

God is in the Radio gathers 50 pieces from 40 years of writing passionately about music.


(If you are curious or interested in pre-ordering a copy, you can find more information over on our catalogue page.)

We are excited about the upcoming publication of Barney Hoskyn's God is in the Radio. To celebrate, we have partnered with Louder Than Words for a launch event. Barney Hoskyns will be chatting with Heath Common on July 29th, marking the publication day. Tickets to this online event can be found at LouderThanWordsFest.com.

Barney will also be appearing at 'A Word in the Park, a Summer Afternoon of Socially Distanced Storytelling', which is taking place in London's Holland Park on Saturday the 17th July. Tickets are on sale now and books will be available on the day.

A former mainstay of NME and MOJO – and author of such acclaimed books as Hotel California and Small Town Talk – Barney Hoskyns hymns the artists that have thrilled and moved him most, from Frank Sinatra to Amy Winehouse, via the Cocteau Twins and Queens of the Stone Age. Together with acts as varied as Laura Nyro and Luther Vandross, Burial and Bobby Womack, these are the “unbridled enthusiasms” that – for Hoskyns – dissolve the rationalisation of feeling, producing a sense of rapture that borders on religious ecstasy.
