Ben Fogle
Growing up, I didn’t come from a musical family. Neither of my parents played an instrument, sang out loud, or listened to the radio with frequency. The record collection in the living room was only about 2 feet long – and that included 4 solid inches of Neil Diamond and Herb Alpert.

Sam Kean
