This week’s podcast is all about legends… With the death of Maradona and the wane of Messi and Barcelona FC, it feels like the end of an era. Who better to talk to about it that than Jimmy Burns; biographer of all three. He brings this experience of the Argentina he grew to love, to his own as a Spaniard and lifelong fanatic of Barcelona, to compare the legacies of two Argentine idols, telling some great Maradona stories along the way!
And in the world of rock, another legend, Phil Manzanera, who recently earned his place in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame as part of the iconic British pop band Roxy Music, talks about the ‘music that made him’ as a child growing up in Cuba, Venezuela and Colombia.
We bring you the music of our chosen ‘classic’ artist, Hector Lavoe, and also play the music of another salsa icon, Luis Enrique, who we interviewed for the latest cover of our magazine.
