Not to worry..you can listen to the whole show on the “Listen Again” feature….
The main item was a look at the career of the late Rudolf Kempe. There is an international Rudolf Kempe Society based in Stratford-upon-Avon, and it was there that I met my interview guest Anthony Negus, who was taking part in a recital with actor Zubin Varla and actress Ruth Lass.
