BBC Radio 2 documentary I made in 1999 about my friend and mentor Alexis Korner. Alexis was a gifted, charming, and sometimes troubled man who influened many - but whose own life and work were shot through with paradoxes. How do you pack a whole lifetime into a fifty minute radio programme? You can't. But hopefully this programme will serve as a short introduction to Alexis and his work. Nearly 30 years after his tragically early death, he's still remembered widely with love, warmth and gratitude.
(Tom Robinson)

"Alexis Korner has had a great influence on the British Blues Scene. If only for helping bring the Rolling Stones together, Alexis should becarried round London on a sedan chair for the rest of his life."
(Pete Townshend, The Who)
