There's also some classic Frank Sinatra with a song that Paul first heard back in 1957 which later become the perfect choice to play at his 2012 civil partnership ceremony. This year marks Paul Gambaccini's 40th anniversary as a broadcaster in Britain and tonight, BBC Radio 2 marks the occasion with a memorable evening of programmes.
