Helen McCookerybook is one of those guests that you could talk to for hours and myself and Bob Simpson (who had popped into the studio before his show) were spellbound. Two live performances during this interview.
Not only is Helen a vocalist, songwriter, illustrator, documentary maker, writer she has also been a lecturer along with being one of the original women of the punk scene.
