Sam Baker in session

Duration:
2 hours, 57 minutes
First broadcast:

Texan Sam Baker reveals why, in his 59th year, he regards every day as a miracle and talks about the song writing process that followed his brush with a terrorist bomb attack in Peru in 1986.

He is joined in our Broadcasting House session studio by his friends Carrie Elkin (on clarinet, guitar and vocals) and Chip Dolan (on grand piano) to play songs from his latest album Say Grace.
