According to The Mail On Sunday, Queen Elizabeth II's late mother owned records including ska music, traditional folk tunes, Trinidadian calypso bands and audio recordings of Winston Churchill's wartime speeches.
William Shawcross, her official biographer, told the paper: "During one of her trips to the Caribbean in the '60s, she was introduced to ska music, which she became very fond of.
"Noel Coward, who was a personal friend, had a house called Firefly in Jamaica and she greatly enjoyed her visits there. The Queen Mother adored him and found his songs to be wonderfully witty."
A former equerry to the Queen Mother said that she "enjoyed listening to everything from Scottish reels to stage musicals".
He further added that she was a devoted fan of BBC broadcaster Terry Wogan, listening to his Radio 2 breakfast show "every morning before she came downstairs".
