While travelling in Peru at age 32, Sam Baker took a train ride that would change his life. On a clear cool morning in Cuzco in the summer of 1986, Sam boarded a passenger train that was blown up minutes later by terrorists. You can hear his extraordinary story and beautiful music when he plays acoustically for Bob after midnight.

Also Norah Jones pops in during the first hour to talk about her new album 'The Fall' and play a couple of tracks from it.
