For the second successive Monday, my week got off to a dream start. Last week it was Rita Tushingham and this week it was Mark King. I did an ‘At Home’ with him and he was in great form. It was on the eve of another Level 42 nationwide tour and tickets are in great demand. Listen out soon for the interview. We first met 38 years ago – and a lots happened since then.
What an amazing Thursday. Backstage at the Mayflower, Southampton, I interviewed four of their pantomime stars within 75 minutes. It was a little manic but so enjoyable. In quick succession I spoke to Steve McFadden (a few million know him as EastEnders Phil Mitchell), Bobby Davro, Sheila Ferguson and Suzanne Shaw. What fun we had and they were all pleased to see me again, which was quite flattering. Listen out soon for the podcasts of all the interviews and one of them is likely to be in a forthcoming Beacon magazine.
