Meet the new owner of The Butterfly Club, Simone Pulga

On this Sunday's show I talk to Simone Pulga (pictured) about taking ownership of The Butterfly Club. Simone was born in Italy and has worked as a dancer and a teacher and he also composes music. I'll be joined in the studio by my friend Neil who is a cabaret aficionado who knows all the best cabaret venues in London and New York. We'll be playing tracks by Neil's favourite artists and I'm going to throw in a track from The Boy from Oz which I saw last night and loved! Tune in at 9pm on Sunday night.
