Malik Bendjelloul, director of Searching for Sugar Man, died this week. It reminded me of a discussion we had about the film, on the radio, last year. I’m reposting the audio below. It’s a REWIND! x
The show was the ‘Saturday Salmagundi’ breakfast show. Toby Kell-Ogg had just got back from South Africa, fresh from seeing the film, and seeing Rodriguez perform.
