For the first time Paul Gambaccini reveals how he started life in the Bronx and wound up as 'The Professor of Pop'. Together with clips of great artists he has known, Paul covers everything from how he first got into radio and television, his early experiences with Rolling Stone magazine, to his fascinating years in BBC Radio and Classic FM. Hear him discuss the three great crises of his life: coping with the Vietnam War's challenge to his American generation, enduring the era of AIDS, and surviving a hostile encounter with the Metropolitan Police. In a nod to his current Radio 4 series Counterpoint, there will be a Music Quiz and a Q&A.
