On 11 January 2018, one of London's best loved pubs called last orders for the final time. To mark its passing, Ann Scanlon presents A Love Letter to… The Good Mixer, a Camden Town local that had been run by the Hurley family since 1984, and was once the centre of the Britpop universe and the most mediated pub in the land.
Ann is joined live in the Boogaloo Studio by the writer Cathi Unsworth, whose first Camden-set novel, The Not Knowing, included a fictional account of The Good Mixer.
