You are at the last episode
Tonight Marc and his musical time machine head back to 1995. This was the year that Nick Leeson was arrested for his role in the collapse of Barings Bank, Richey Edwards of the Manic Street Preachers went missing and comedian Peter Cook passed away.
In this, the last episode of the series, we hear what happened when Stuart Maconie interviewed the reluctant and revered pop star Scott Walker for Radio 4's art programme Kaleidoscope. Famed for being one third of the Walker Brothers, and known for classics like The Sun Aint Gonna Shine Anymore and Make It Easy On Yourself, he'd known massive success in the 60s but following the bands break-up he had become increasingly enigmatic and reclusive.
In May 1995 he had just emerged from an eleven year hibernation following the release of his twelfth record Tilt. We hear him discuss the European influence on his American sensibility, his writing technique and his notions of crime and punishment.
