A ‘musician's musician’, Dearie was an iconic figure on the cabaret circuit in New York, Paris and London. Citing her as a major influence - indeed the two singers met shortly before Blossom died in 2009 - Minogue explores her fascinating musical career.
Kylie said: "I love Blossom's voice. It's that combination of fragility and strength that seems to be a perfect reflection of her personality.
She may have been petite but she knew how to look after herself.
Her story's fascinating and I hope that the listeners will be as inspired as I was to discover more about her life and her music."
Her programme was broadcast by BBC Radio 2 on Thursday at 10pm.
