Drive with Charlie (10th Oct 2017)

While Keith is away, Charlie gets to play!  Today’s Drive show started-off carbon-neutral although things didn’t quite work out… The hamsters are doing fine, by the way.

In the news was talk of the new Blade Runner filmspoiler-alert if you click the audio below!

Of more importance was the fact that today is the commemoration of Ada Lovelace whose work with Charles Babbage on the Analytical Engine led to the discovery that it could be used for more than just basic calculation… and often referred to as the first “computer programmer”.  It’s an annual event is to raise awareness of women in STEM fields: Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

American recording artist Dean Friedman, best known to British audiences for his classic hits, “Lucky Stars”, “Rocking Chair”, “Woman Of Mine” and “Lydia”, has just released his 8th album and is half-way through a mammoth 40 date tour of the UK.

It was a delight to welcome Dean into Phoenix FM today – still enthusiastic about his music and bright as a button despite having done thousands of interviews over the years! Dean spoke to Keith Rogers about his recording career, his current album – 12 Songs – and tour. He also gave us a rendition of an oldie and a newie too. You can see the whole interview and session again below:


Dean’s new album is available to order now from his website at deanfriedman.com. If you get in quickly you may be able to catch him live in Kent tomorrow night and in London at the weekend – all tour dates are listed on the website too.
