Opera Babes

4 hours
First broadcast:
Wednesday 25 April 2012

• Back in 2001, two opera singers were discovered busking in London's Covent Garden and almost overnight were thrust into the global media spotlight, releasing an album, achieving No.1 chart positions across the world and becoming an international success phenomenon. It sounds like a PR marketing stunt, but this is a true story and Mike will be chatting to Opera Babes.
• Plus, the world's most performed composer, Karl Jenkins, talks about his new album which is already a best seller!
• Who do the rich and famous call when they've got a problem they need a bit of expert legal help with? Mr Loophole of course. His real name is Nick Freeman and he'll talk to us about his hi profile clientele!
• Plus the TOP TEN FROM WHEN, where we take you back to the year when there were 20 pirate radio ships broadcasting to the UK, there’s a slow confortable 2@2 and an invitation to CONNECT 4.
