BIG COUNTRY – A celebration of 4 decades of music-making:
Two-part radio special in words and music.
Coming up on this Friday’s (5 October) rock show, a jumbo celebration of the music of Big Country. Two feature hour interviews in one evening, telling the band’s story over time, kicking off with an hour 5-6pm – with and then part 2 following 9.30-10.30pm
For part 1 at 5pm on Friday, we speak with drummer Mark Brzezicki about the band’s early days and chart successes, their appearance with Queen at Knebworth in 1986 – and Big Country’s eventual decision to reform some years after the tragic loss of Stuart Adamson. We also hear about Mark’s session projects over the decades with many other rock n roll greats – and his take on the changing face of the music industry.
In between these two specials, between 6-8pm it’s new bands and new music. We’ll be showcasing music from a heap of new albums out next Friday, including Sari Beth Schorr Idlewar Bad Touch The Brew and of course Those Damn Crows
