Chris Forsyth loved the sound of the electric guitar as a kid. In his 20s he had his entire approach to music transformed when former Television guitarist Richard Lloyd took him on as a pupil. And in this episode, he plays live and reveals where every guitarist’s sound comes from.

Ogilala is the new album from William Patrick Corgan, the Smashing Pumpkins bandleader who you probably better know as Billy. His new album is the first where he felt comfortable being completely himself – tune in to hear about that and some live solo acoustic performances.
