British folk singer Linda Thompson joins Simon and Brian to talk about the writing of her new solo album Won't Be Long Now. Linda talks about songs like 'Love's for Babies and Fools', 'If I Were a Bluebird' (written with Ron Sexsmith), 'Paddy's Lamentation' and the maritime themes of songs like 'Never Put to Sea Boys' and 'Never the Bride'. Linda describes what it's like working with family members, especially her son Teddy Thompson, and the vocal condition that silenced her live performance career. The new album also marks the first recording with Richard Thompson in over a decade.
