Georgie Fame talks to Cerys Matthews on the BBC World Service about his career

Born in 1946 in Lancashire in the UK, Georgie Fame is widely acknowledged as being one of the first recording artists to introduce rhythm and blues and soul to the youth of the UK in the '60s. After his single Yeh Yeh hit number one in the singles charts in 1964, Georgie and his band the Blue Flames went on to have a string of hits throughout the decade, creating a huge legacy which lives on today. Still performing across Europe with orchestras and is own band, Georgie joins Cerys to discuss his long and distinguished career.
