Standing at the Mississippi crossroads where Robert Johnson and the devil had their infamous meeting, broadcaster, musician and writer Mark Radcliffe found himself facing his own personal crunch point: losing his dad and being diagnosed with cancer. He talks to Matthew Stadlen about the turning points in his own life, pivotal tracks that changed the course of music and how music itself can transform our lives.
