Reminder: Tune in to @jamiecullum’s @BBC_Radio_2 show tomorrow at 7pm

This week’s special guest is the South African jazz legend Hugh Masekela, who’s worked closely with Abdullah Ibrahim, Miriam Makeba, Paul Simon, The Byrds and John Dankworth; and whose hit song Bring Him Back Home became an anthem for the movement to free Nelson Mandela.

In a touching yet light-hearted interview, Masekela reflects on the good times and the hard times that have contributed to the music he is creating today.
