Today's episode is a celebration of Black History Month and I had an opportunity to speak to a pioneer in the Black British Community Wilf Walker OBE, one of the founders of the Notting Hill Carnival and revered figure in the music and entertainment industry.
Wilf helped shaped the Glastonbury festival with Michael Leavers to what is today and promoted an impressive roster of musicians and artists across the UK, such as Curtis Mayfield, Gil Scott Heron,  Aswad,  Musical Youth, Youssou N'Dour, Richie Havens, Freddy McGregor and the list goes on.
It was by no means an easy start for Wilf in life having had to overcome many adversities whether that be incarceration, the music industry or fighting on the frontline of Notting Hill against institutional racism (Wilf is mentioned extensively in Ishmael Blagrove Jr's book 'The Frontline'); it  has made for a remarkable journey which he was kind enough to share.
