France’s King of Rock

A hundred and ten million records sold, fifty years of stardom but France’s answer to Elvis is still unknown outside of France. On today's show we're talking Johnny Hallyday, the French rock' n' roller who has set his sights on world domination.

Also on the programme three musicians from three different continents bring their sounds together to form the magical World Kora Trio, the cellist Eric LONGSWORTH is in the studio. For more info on World Kora Trio, click on http://www.eric-longsworth.com/
