On Tuesday 2nd March at our Maida Vale Studios one of the greatest songwriters and singers of the past four decades - Carly Simon - played her first ever concert in the UK.

Presented by Paul Gambaccini, the show features acoustic arrangements of her greatest hits including Coming Around Again, Never Been Gone and Let The River Run.

Carly chats to Paul about the stories behind them and continued speculation about the hit You're So Vain. She also talks about why she's released this new album, Never Been Gone, which was recorded at her home in the US on the island of Martha's Vineyard.

And Carly's son Ben Taylor, the youngest child from her marriage to James Taylor, also performs a couple of songs.
