Madrid Live

In the latest edition of Madrid Live, presenter Ann Bateson interviews multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Leo Sidran who plays with his "groovy French band" at the Café Berlín in Madrid on 2 April. Leo wrote hit songs for rock musician Steve Miller when he was in his teens.  In 2005, he teamed up with singer songwriter Jorge Drexler to co-produce a song called Al Otro Lado del Río which is on the soundtrack to the film The Motor Cycle Diaries. Al Otro Lado del Río won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 2005. 

We also talk to director Jan-Ole Gerster about his award-winning film Oh Boy.  Oh Boy is a black and white film. It’s about a day in the life of a drop-out in modern-day Berlin set to a jazz soundtrack.   
 
Plus Ann Bateson's interview with Irish writer Barry McCrea about his novel The First Verse.  Barry’s main character Niall goes to Trinity College, Dublin and meets a couple of students who decide that signs and symbols from books should determine their actions. What starts off being an intriguing game for Niall becomes increasingly dramatic and addictive. The First Verse, which has been described as "a dazzling fictional and intellectual debut”, has also been published in Spanish.
