Word Podcast 267 – Miranda Sawyer and Barry McIlheney on the unique magic of Smash Hits

David Hepworth started at Smash Hits in the late 70s, Mark Ellen joined in the early 80s, Barry McIlheney arrived in the middle of the decade and Miranda Sawyer came along in the late 80s. Therefore they were well placed to talk about such key Smash Hits experiences as being pinned to a door by Jimmy Pursey, taking Bananarama to Burger King, asking U2 to draw a duck and getting a bit tired and going home halfway through a Stone Roses interview. All this and more in this bumper ish.

  1. Love the podcast … sorry my comment´s not really relevant to this podcast but is there any chance of you guys getting Stuart Cosgrove on to talk about his fantastic book “Detroit 67”? If you haven´t caught up with that one I would highly recommend it – a great read.

  2. Thanks for that, Lee. We tried to arrange something with Stuart earlier in the year but we couldn’t make the dates work. Maybe we’ll revisit it.
