Parnes' People on Radio 2, Tuesday 10.30pm
Just a reminder that the BBC will be broadcasting Parnes' People on Radio 2 tomorrow (Tuesday) at 10.30pm. Among interviewees is Billy's one-time flatmate and close friend, Vince Eager, who is headlining at the Sunnyside next month.
It will be available on the bbc.co.uk/radio2 website for a further week, and I shall then be archiving it on the Radio page on billyfury.com.
Saturday nights on Radio 2
Saturday nights are looking very strong for vintage music fans on Radio 2 at the moment, with a run of features and regular programmes from 7pm to 11pm. Last week, a Buddy Holly feature at 7pm was followed by the regular Suzi Quatro programme, then the first in an initial eight-week run in which Johnnie Walker makes a light-hearted attempt to recreate a pirate radio broadcast for two hours.
Johnnie is supposedly on the ship Rock 'n' Roll, a few miles off the Essex coast. This Saturday, the 7pm feature will be on Gene Vincent.
Last week's shows can be heard on bbc.co.uk/radio2 until Saturday.
