Whispers Through a Megaphone: the soundtrack

03 Sep 2015

Rachel Elliott’s charming debut Whispers Through a Megaphone is delightfully peppered with eclectic musical references, so we asked the author herself to compile a Spotify playlist to be enjoyed alongside the book.

From Doris Day to Oasis, the playlist weaves its way through musical genres and several decades; giving a flavour of what’s going on in the characters’ heads. We hope you’ll agree Rachel’s playlist is a brilliant one – maybe listen to it on your commute whilst you read, to really get into the zone.
