In the first episode of season two, we delve into Louis' past as our wistful troubadour reminisces about the moment that changed his life, the 1994 final of Is Wales Talented?

In one afternoon the trumpet prodigy became a household name from Swansea to Rhyl but little did he know the gold spewing from the end of his trusty instrument would soon turn to ash, as salacious and ultimately criminal scandals were to dog the tortured genius.

This is a must listen for any fan of the Louis Horne Universe, for as George Santayana said: "Those who cannot learn from history, are doomed to repeat it."

Get ready to go back to where it all began... if you dare.
