on the radio…

Easy On The Eye were featured on BBC Radio 2 recently.

The occasion was the broadcast at the end of 2009 of a special programme about the Top Of The Pops albums. The producers interviewed Tim Joseph, author of When Cover Girls Ruled The World, at length about the recordings, as well as Easy On The Eye publisher Simon Robinson, who they credited as a “pop historian”! The show was fronted by Slade singer Noddy Holder, and also featured contributions from a number of session players as well as former models, producers and engineers. The show may still be featured as a download on the BBC website, but if you’d like to hear it let us know.

Interestingly, the interviews with Tim and Simon were done at Fairview studios, just outside Hull (Tim Joseph’s home town). Fairview is a famous provincial studio, started in 1966 by Keith Herd, who still works there today. It was a bit of a nostalgia trip for Tim Joseph who recorded there with his band in the late 1970s.
