Word Podcast 298 – Gary Crowley on 80s pop and forty years as a teenager

Gary Crowley has just put together “Gary Crowley’s Lost 80s”, a lovingly-curated four CD set of the kind of oldies that the radio station computer doesn’t automatically reach for. It’s the kind of stuff that might have soundtracked his teenage discos, his nights at the Wag, his shows on Capital Radio and GLR or served to warm up the crowd as he presided over shows by Wham or the Style Council.

He came along to Word In Your Ear to talk to Mark Ellen and David Hepworth about his extraordinary career, which began with meeting Joe Strummer in the street, climaxed with introducing Oasis at Knebworth and involved everybody from Elton John to the Wonder Stuff.

  1. What a great listen this is.

    Includes what has to be one of the best WIYE lines ever, “I’ve got a vivid memory of showing Father Abraham down to his cab”.

    Also thought Gary’s enthusiasm makes Danny B sound almost sleepy in comparison!
