Our Friday, 5/2 Guest: Jean MacColl on Her Book: Sun On The Water
Written by admin on April 30, 2008
Fans of Kirsty MacColl might remember the events surrounding her tragic death while scuba diving in Cozumel, Mexico. Kirsty’s mother, Jean MacColl, recently wrote a book on her daughter’s life: Sun On the Water. In it, she tells of Kirsty not only as an accomplished singer and songwriter — but also as a daughter, person and devoted mother.
Jean also talks with me about the Justice for Kirdty campaign, where she and the MacColl family are still fighting for a fair trial in the case of Kirsty’s death; the book reveals how Mexican officials let the owner of the boat and man responsible, Mexican supermarket millionaire Guillermo González Nova, off without being charged amidst some legal shennanigans. She also discusses the large amount of help and support she has had — and still has — from Kirsty’s friends and fans.
The interview with Jean MacColl will air this Friday on Revenge of the 80s Radio (7-9pm Eastern US Time) and will lead off the second hour (8pm Eastern US time). We will also feature some of Kirsty MacColl’s music.
The book, Sun On the Water, is available where books are sold online.
