Wired for sound - A Milton Keynes book of Music History

Local journalist & music enthusiast Sammy Jones has spent decades of her life dedicated to the music scene within Milton Keynes. Sammy was inspired to put some incredible history into one fantastic read, which is now known as Wired For Sound.

Wired For Sound cuts through the foundations of Milton Keynes, and talks to many of those responsible for building music into its fabric.

Dig beneath the concrete of the new city and learn about the music makers and risk takers who helped make Milton Keynes a more colourful place.

Hear from the giants of rock who have wowed on The National Bowl stage, and the artists who recorded at the top-flight recording studio in a leafy corner of the old town, then reminisce with the dance promotions that fed a generation.

Learn about the jazz stars who made their life in MK and poured their passion into a world-class music venue. Remember the astute businessman who moved the HQ of his business to the town, making Milton Keynes home to arguably the most famous name in music.

With more than 1000 images and sound-bites from many of those who helped put music on the map, this is the story of how the new town became Wired For Sound.
