    Sacha talks to the magical troubadour Donovan in this episode. They first met when Sacha was five years old on the set of The Pied Piper, in which Donovan starred. They discuss the film, both Donovan's original song Sailing Homeward, and Sacha's version (released on 17th July) and Donovan takes us through a world of revolution, music and wonderment.


    As promised, here is the link to the footage of Donovan and Dylan in 1965.
