History's most interesting letters.
Episode details

I hadn’t planned on sending out a newsletter today, and then I realised it’s Keith Richards’ 78th birthday and I can’t just let such an event pass by, silently. So here’s a letter he wrote aged 18, to his aunt, about meeting Mick Jagger. And as a treat, I’m including audio of that letter1 as read by Jude Law. It’s taken from the Letters of Note: Music audiobook, which is excellent and can be purchased here. Enjoy.
