Lenny Henry is warming up for his new show POP LIFE! A show about his passion for music.
Henry is an avowed music fan, from funk to pop, R’n’B to Reggae, Reggae to Blues and back – his IPod weighs a ton, his vinyl collection could, if melted down, make an exact replica of Barry White.
In this show Lenny entertainingly riffs on his favourite subject: music. Lenny discusses how music could have improved many moments of history, the first man on the moon, Jesus introducing the disciples at the sermon of the mount, Winston Churchill gives his famous We shall fight them on the Beaches speech..all newly imagine by Len plus music. Len argues that Music sounds better with everything, from the cradle to the grave.
These are stories about teen disco love, clubbing in Dudley and even an interlude about the musical compromised one must make in a long term relationship (here’s a clue – it’s spelt S.A.D.E). A ton of jokes about music, fandom and also: Len plays the piano! Come and watch a grown man sweat buckets over Blueberry Hill and find out what happened to the other black notes….
