In the second of our special programmes celebrating the 10th anniversary of Ben's Country Music Show, Ben is joined in the studio by Neil Castledine. Back in 2008, Neil invited Ben to join him as a co-presenter on his country music show and, a few years, Ben took over the reigns and Ben's Country Music Show began.
