A Conversation With Mr. B on Life Elsewhere

Share

By the age of eleven, he planned to be a graphic designer or a radio announcer. Then, Elvis changed his life. Music became a passion. He was there, the night Andrew Oldham discovered the Stones. At art school, he learnt about the Blues, R & B, Soul and Reggae. A visit to New York in ’74 found him at CBGB, alongside Lenny Kaye and Patti Smith as Television performed. A chance introduction to radio resulted in a long career as an acclaimed interviewer. This is part one of his story, illustrated with music from Johnnie RayElvis PresleyThe Rolling Stones, Marvin GayeThe SkatalitesRoy & MillieAlton EllisToots & The MaytalsJohnny Clarke, Television and Killing Joke.
