Episode Summary

Benjamin Zephaniah
We're always mindful of that really lame scene in happy days when Fonzie is water skiing and jumps over a shark. It shows us that things quickly start going downhill when a concept veers too far from its original premise. So our mantra - one song, one take, one cab - is something that we will always stay true to. However, what is also true is that the hackney carriage is quite a good vehicle (ba-boom) for other types of performance. One of them being poetry. Especially when it is being performed by an absolute master of the art. So we thought it worth a little foray away from music, to welcome a hero of ours into the black cab: Dr Benjamin Zephaniah. A real privilege it was, and the resulting session is, quite simply, poetry in motion.moreless
