Revealing, thought provoking and at times hilarious, BBC Radio 2 legend Johnnie Walker discovers the real person behind the celebrity.
Famous for his years on pirate Radio Caroline and Radio 1 and 2, Johnnie is regarded as one of the finest radio interviewers today. Now Johnnie escapes the studio for the Edinburgh stage to engage each night with a star guest from the worlds of music, arts, sports and politics in this revealing, intimate and entertaining daily 60 minute live show.
