Loudon Wainwright III in Session

2 hours
First broadcast:
Friday 24 May 2013

Lopa Kothari with new tracks from across the globe, and a specially recorded studio session with Loudon Wainwright III.

Older Than My Old Man Now is the 22nd album from this prolific American songwriter who is the father of Rufus Wainwright and Martha Wainwright, and former husband of the late Kate McGarrigle. In between songs, Wainwright talks about his family, career and musical influences which include Ramblin' Jack Elliott. And along the way, we hear an old classic from 1970 and two brand new songs, on the subjects of dogwalking and Mark Twain.
