"For years I've made shows about other people's voices and stories - hiding behind the smooth sophistication of Peggy Lee, the bold blues of Bessie Smith, the fragile tones of Dory Previn. But I've always had another nagging voice in my head - what's my true story?" So I started listening... recording the sounds and people around me. If they had a song, what would it be? "This show is about the voices we keep locked up inside. About the need for connection. Outside and in. About me and you. Right here, right now" Kate Dimbleby.
