Double act

A double act of repute. I once made a pizza for Syd Little (left) in the Brighton London Road branch of Pizzahut.

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.

This week, we listen to 55 minutes of collaborations, duos and man-and-wife acts. We begin with an infamous team formed by the monstrous Ike Turner and the incredible Tina singing "I don't believe W You Say." Another split marriage – Linda and Richard Thompson – is reprised on the programme singing the achingly lovely "Dimming of the Day." Then we have a few interesting collaborations - John Cale with Terry Riley and Brian Eno as well as Jimmy Tenor and Tony Allen. Last but not least, the finest duo of them all, Nancy and Lee.
