Petula Clark

Petula_Clark_1500x1500_klIt was pleasure to chat with music legend Petula Clark about her new album Living For Today and her upcoming tour that will bring her to the Chicago area on December 17th.  We discussed how she keeps her voice in such amazing shape (at age 84, soon to be 85!), and what it’s like to make a record in 2017 versus 1967.  Plus:  Petula tells the story of how she wound up singing on the “Give Peace a Chance” record with John & Yoko.

Marc Almond

Pop legend Marc Almond called in to talk about his new album, “Shadows and Reflections,” which is out on September 22.  We discussed making a “traditional” torch song/orchestral pop record, the fun juxtaposition of upbeat melodies and depressing lyrics, the legend of Billy Fury, touring with an orchestra, and unfortunate impersonators.
