First broadcast:

Continuing a series of some of the best of The First Time, Matt Everitt discusses musical milestones with the one and only Ringo Starr.

Ringo talks Matt Everitt through his remarkable career - from the early days when his family inspired him to pick up the drumsticks, the influence of Radio Luxembourg and his very first performance with The Beatles; to Beatlemania, conquering the world and how the band's slow and painful break-up felt to an insider.

Ringo also discusses life after The Beatles, his solo career and his All-Starr Band in an interview first heard in September 2011.
