Forever words


I grew up listening to Johnny Cash, and I’ve never tired of his music. A couple of years ago I gained insight into his life through reading his biography and I love the film ‘Walk The Line’.

This week I met his son John Carter Cash, as he was interviewed by my friend Colleen Murphy, world-renowned DJ and founder of  classicalbumsundays.com, an album-listening club.
