This week a very special one-off show.
Jenny spends an hour with one of the men behind this summer’s biggest record - Nile Rodgers.
Nile Rodgers’ music career began in the late sixties as a house musician at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.
After a spell with the Sesame Street touring band fell into New York’s Crazy disco scene.
With his band Chic, he recorded multi-million selling hits like “Good Times”, “Le Freak” and “Everybody Dance”
In the Eighties he went on to produce hit records for other artists including - Madonna’s “Lke a Virgin”, David Bopwie’s most commercially successful album ever - “Let’s Dance”
After a battle with a very aggressive form of prostate cancer he’s now back at work
“Get Lucky” - which he co-wrote with Daft Punk - got to number one in over 20 countries
And he’s gone down a storm on the festival circuit -
Last Saturday Jenny caught up with him backstage ahead of his gig at Indigo2.
