Ray Charles Interviewed On BBC Worldwide (2001)


In an episode of Meridian Masterpiece, a BBC Worldwide radio news program, Ray Charles talked about his life and his music. “Throughout his life he has shown great strength and has fought to get what he wants. He’s a black man from a segregated town in the USA who performed in apartheid South Africa; a blind man who’s created a foundation for the deaf”, the BBC website announced. The program probably aired on or shortly after 12 April 2001. The 24-minute RealAudio soundfile of the program is still here.
