Let’s dig up an old news story on this historic day. Today, in Washington Barack Obama will be inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States of America. The president-elect might be listening to Radiohead on his way to the inaugural events.
Back in July of 2008, Barack Obama had an hour of discussions with UK Conservative leader, David Cameron, at the House of Commons. Obama departed with gifts including a box of CDs by some of Cameron’s favourite British musicians, among them Radiohead, The Smiths, Gorillaz and Lily Allen, and a copy of Hague’s recent biography of the anti-slavery campaigner, William Wilberforce.
