Toyah is Jools’ guest!

Jools Holland
Listen live on BBC Radio 2, Saturday 16 May 2020
or catch-up on BBC Sounds / BBC iPlayer

Join Jools Holland for the first in a new series where he and a guest explore the Later… archive, picking out some favourite moments and discussing some of their favourite artists along the way.

Kicking it off is singer, songwriter & actress Toyah, who picks the likes of Bryan Ferry, David Bowie, Lana Del Ray & Muse, as well as discussing her work and career, with some surprising insights into the life of a performing artist!

Additionally Jools revisits the very first episode of the show to play the Neville Brothers and to tease out some of the history of New Orleans music. Formed in 1977 in New Orleans, The Neville Brothers’ eponymous debut album was released just a year later on Capitol Records. Composed of brothers Aaron, Art, Charles, Cyril and Ivan Neville, the band became a key fixture in the New Orleans music scene, going on to win a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Performance in 1990 for their song “Healing Chant”.

“Later…with Jools Holland” is the UK’s favourite music TV programme, with an archive that stretches back over 25 years full of amazing performances by legendary artists.

This series – and its companion shows on BBC2 – is the first to properly explore this remarkable heritage, bringing back to BBC airwaves a treasure trove of musical delights!
