Respectful, but not solemn

If you haven't heard it already, it's worth listening to Bill Bailey's "Private Passions" (in conversation with Michael Berkeley), which is available for the next seven days. Bailey is a "proper" musician, who almost embarked on a concert career, so that his humour is all the more telling through his playing music straight.

He also revealed a great interest in the music & instruments of other cultures, for which there was sadly little time today. Perhaps he should collaborate with Andy Kershaw or Lucy Duran in an exploration of this side of his shows in another R3 programme?
