New York Stories with Joe Pascal

Legendary rap star and co-founder of the ground-breaking Run-DMC, Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels grew up in Hollis Queens and has more than a story or two to tell about a lifetime in New York. He’ll talk us through the birth of hip hop, how he only just survived a lifetime in the music industry and his favorite comic book superheroes.

And award-winning New York chef Marcus Samuelsson. He was born in a tiny village in Ethiopia, too small to even appear on maps. Aged 2 he contracted TB. His mum carried him for 75 miles to the capital for treatment. She died but he survived and was adopted by a Swedish family who taught him a love of cooking. Marcus is now a leading light of New York cuisine running an international restaurant chain but with his heart firmly grounded in the stories of Harlem.
