John Wilson continues with his new series in which he talks to leading performers and songwriters about the album that made them or changed them. Recorded in front of a live audience at the BBC's iconic Maida Vale Studios. Each edition includes two episodes, with John initially quizzing the artist about the album in question, and then, in the B-side, the audience puts the questions. Both editions feature exclusive live performances.
Programme 6, the B-side. Having discussed the making of her breakthrough album 'Ayé' (in the A-side of the programme, broadcast on Monday 24th November and available online), Angélique Kidjo responds to questions from the audience and performs acoustic live versions of some of the tracks from the album which was released twenty years ago.
