Over on the East Coast, in New Jersey's Rahway prison, Reginald Haynes was another inmate with a similar initiative. Reginald was spotted at a convict talent show by established music producer George Kerr and a group now known as The Legendary Escorts was formed. Reginald tells the extraordinary story of how the group's first album was produced, and of the changes the scheme would bring to his later life on the outside.

Duration: 30 minutes
First broadcast: Saturday 13 April 2013

Heard the advert for it and the music was pretty good, driving funky late 60s early 70s.

listened this morning, was just about to get up, kept me in bed glued to the radio, superb.

Bravo R4, once again.




Edit: Mind you, I'm entertained and fascinated with the Shipping forecast.

Soul as a form of rehabilitation - I'll buy into that. Perhaps we can persuade the Probation Service to adopt it over here.. if Chris Grayling hasn't destroyed it completely .
