Song For Bob Geldof...
BBC1 here in the UK is tonight showing a fifty minute documentary entitled:
Bob Geldof is at the heart of this documentary, he is joined by a supporting cast including David Bowie, Bono and Sting in addition to his close family and friends as we look back on his dramatic life story and ask the question: Who is Bob Geldof?
The programme starts in around half an hour at 10:40pm.
Geldof is also the next artist in the series of the Under The Influence series of compilation albums, (pictured above) released by DMC Records.
