They were the first British group to have a US number 1 single and tonight one of their original members tells his story live in the studio. Keyboard player Roger Laverne from The Tornadoes talks about Telstar, recording with music pioneer Joe Meek and what he’s up to now. Our Classic Album of the week is Spirits Having Flown by The Bee Gees while Roger also takes us through a future classic – Boys Don’t Cry by Rumur. There's an hour of the best country with Steve Cherelle.
