Desert Island Desks

Posted by on

At Ape HQ, the only thing abundant as coconut-based snacks is music. The daily battle of the bands is something we look forward to with anticipation, excitement and, admittedly, a little trepidation.
As a result, we thought it was time we introduced our very own round of Desert Island Desks (à la Radio 4). We have recklessly broken some of the programme’s rules (what are we like), and added some of our own (we like to mix it up).
So as the Bard said “If music be the food of love, play on…”. Queue the tunes.
