EP.95 - JOHN GRANT

Adam talks with American musician John Grant about travel stress, island survival, languages, favourite documentaries, John's last record 'Love Is Magic' (2018), horror films and favourite soundtracks, and growing up gay in a religious American family.

This week's outro includes a visit from 'Country Man' presenter Monty Buggershop-Hooty who brings you some 'Sounds Of The Summer'.

Visit the Adam Buxton app and open the Bonus Audio section for more music chat with John and accompanying Spotify playlist.

The conversation was recorded in London in October 2018
