Guest Top 5 Album Suggestions

Shelf of albums, keyboard chronicles

Every episode we ask our keyboard playing guests to nominate their top 5 albums / desert island discs. Sometimes 6 are chosen, sometime less than 5 (and in one instance 10!), but in all cases a lot of thought has gone into the choices.
