This is well worth hearing for a gentle, witty and humorous take on taste in art. Part 2 is next Tuesday.

I heard it this morning. I really do like his take on "art" and found it a very engaging and amusing talk (as was the short, tightly edited, Q&A session that followed).

I like Grayson ...he is a very engaging fellow....and have done ever since he came to prominence after winning the Turner Prize and always give anything he does a listen/look if I can.

Enjoyed this programme ..thanks for posting about it,Eileen.....Grayson had me laughing out loud in parts .."If I had a hammer" Laughing

This programme, that was on Radio 4 back in 2010, is still available to listen to....

Turner Prize winning artist Grayson Perry takes his teddy bear and childhood hero, Alan Measles, across Bavaria on a highly decorated Kenilworth AM1 motorcycle.

As did Simon Kelner in the "I" newspaper. And I enjoyed the programme too - what an engaging speaker Grayson Perry is.

I've just seen another favourable article in "I" about this programme by Fiana Sturges who goes on to praise Charlotte Church's John Peel Lecture in which she enters into the debate about what she calls "the sexualisation and degradation" of women in music.
