Front Row - Neil Young interviewed

BBC Radio 4 broadcast: 8th June 2012

In a rare extended interview with John Wilson, the Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young discusses his latest disc, a selection of traditional songs, recorded with the uninhibited rock band Crazy Horse.

The album includes a version of God Save The Queen, the anthem Young recalls singing as a schoolboy in Canada.

Young, who topped the album charts on both sides of the Atlantic 40 years ago with his LP Harvest, also reflects on the role of the protest song in the age of the TV talent show, and considers his own instinctive approach to music-making, and his reluctance to become a crowd-pleaser.

Producer John Goudie.
