A wonderfully honest memoir and a celebration of one of the most influential women in Britain's music industry
From the Inside Flap
Jo Whiley is someone millions of us recognise and very few of us know. Jo's a mother, sister, DJ, wife and music-industry insider who throughout her career - and in an age of fleeting celebrity - has earned the respect of her peers and fans by simply being herself and by her constant enthusiasm, be it for established rock 'n roll royalty or for emerging talent. For Jo Whiley, it's all about the music.
My World in Motion offers a unique opportunity to get to know the real Jo Whiley. From Jo's musical epiphany (being carried over the crowd at a Clash concert) to when she became friends with John Peel at Glastonbury (over some very short shorts - his not hers) and interviewed Bono (surviving a power-cut on vodka); My World in Motion is an honest, funny, self-deprecating account of Jo's professional coming of age and what it means to be a private person in a very public world.
