Live in Studio 4A
Sir James and Jeanne Galway
Sir James Galway With golden flutes in hand, the world's most famous flutist, Sir James Galway, and his wife Jeanne, stopped into Studio 4A for a mini perf-chat. About ten years ago, Sir James believed he would retire at age 60. He's reached that age and is feeling and playing better than ever.
Needless to say, retirement is nowhere in the near future for Sir James.
