Mary Ann Hobbs

And I’ll tell you I’ve never told this story a lot but I’ll never forget the day she came into Radio 1 to do her very first mix for this program [Breezeblock, 1998] and she was weraing a little fairy dress and silver wings glued on to the back of it and I said to her "Björk why are you in that outfit ?" and she said "Well, you know what ? Tonight I’m gonna play Icelandic nursery rhymes and a lot of the music I remember listening to as a child, growing up in Iceland. And this would have been the kind of outfit I was wearing when I would have originally heard these tunes..." Phenomenal woman !
