Bob Geldof is the latest artist to be profiled on BBC 6 Music’s excellent program The First Time, which is hosted by DJ Matt Everitt. Geldof, always an interesting interview subject, recounts his involvement in music throughout his life, from seeing The Beatles and the Rolling Stones live in Ireland with his older sister in the early 1960s to his time with The Boomtown Rats to his lead role in Live Aid. It’s a great listen.
