The Smooth Drive Home with Tina Hobley 4pm - 7pm
As The Beatles’ drummer is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we choose five things you might not know about Ringo Starr.
He had (and continues to have) a unique drumming style, brought on by being left-handed and having to play on a right-handed drum set.
Ringo's wife Barbara Bach is a former Bond girl. She appeared in the James Bond movie 'The Spy Who Loved Me'.
He set the company up with designer Robin Cruikshank and it specialised in art-deco pieces.
Ringo preferred to record his parts live in the studio with The Beatles playing along.
