Beale Street Caravan features Memphis son Greg Cartwright leading “The Reigning Sound”. Greg’s a bit of a blues-punk legend and was a former member of the Oblivians. The Reigning Sound are a mixture of garage rock and classic soul music, a sort of cross between the early Rolling Stones and the Sonics.

Also on the programme: Jim Spake stops in with his series on the sidemen that played rock and roll's original lead instrument, he’s "Crazy 'Bout A Saxophone".
