AUDIO GENERALIST NEW: JON SAVAGE
Your exclusive chance to listen to a interview with writer Jon Savage on his new book 'Teenage: The Creation of Youth 1875-1945, published by Chatto & Windus. This major new work by the author of the fabulous 'England's Dreaming: Sex Pistols and Punk Rock' (1991) is throughly investigated in this exclusive recording.

'Teenage' has been widely reviewed. The best of all of these, to my mind, is 'The Young and the Restless' by Camille Paglia in the New York Times (May 6,2007).

Two interesting interviews with Jon Savage appeared in 3:AM Magazine, both conducted by the magazine's Editor-in-Chief Andrew Gallix. The first dates from 2002 and is entitled 'London's Outrage'; the second from May 2007 - 'Juvenilia and Other Delinquences.'
Jon has sold a large quantity of his punk material to the Liverpool John Moores University, who have created the 'England's Dreaming Punk Archive.'
