Music From My Collection: Monday Drive Time with Paul Cosgrave 4 – 6pm Monday 22 Sept

Music From My Collection (Mon Sept 22) presents two music specials.  A remarkable reunion concert took place in New York last week for Philip Glass and Steve Reich, together on stage for the first time in thirty years and reconciled as friends after a long period of recrimination.  We’ll hear a conversation with Paul’s cousin, Will, who was at the concert, and music from both Reich and Glass.

Tony Bennett’s latest album is a jazz collaboration with Lady Ga Ga and Paul presents a fascinating BBC conversation with Bennett, and plays duets with Amy Winehouse and Lady Ga Ga.

You’ll hear the Scottish “national anthem”, Oh Flower Of Scotland, in its original version by The Corries, as well as songs from The Outlaws, Keren Ann and an old rocker from The Pretty Things (see full playlist).  Business comment, news, weather, rail and traffic complete Monday’s drive time mix.  You can send comment and requests via pwp.com@gmail.com, or via this website.
