Broadcast on R4 on Thursday and now available on i-Player - the story of how Annie Ross, the daughter of two Scottish “vaudevillians” (the brother of Jimmy Logan, for those who remember him), came to replace Billie Holiday at the Apollo Theatre.

(i-Player has “Billie Holliday” and of course a photo of the presenter rather than the subject)

Next week - "I was Bob Dylan's one-off sparring partner"

All that survives from Annie Ross’ 1965 appearance on Desert Island Discs

Here's Annie Ross with Tom Waits. Kind of. In Robert Altman's splendid 'Short Cuts'.
