NEAL HEFTI – Batman & Basie & Barefoot in the Park

NEAL HEFTI – Batman & Basie & Barefoot in the Park

July 28, 2021

NEAL HEFTI was one of the most original and influential composers and arrangers of the 20th Century. Beginning as arranger for Woody Herman he went on to composing and arranging for Count Basie and Frank Sinatra. He wrote for film (The Odd Couple, Barefoot In The Park, Harlow, Sex & The Single Girl) and for TV (the phenomenal success of his “Batman” theme).

I wrote and hosted this show for my BBC Radio 2 series “The Arrangers” in 2001 (produced by Elizabeth Clark) and am happy to make this available for a new audience.

Richard Niles interviews Legendary producer SHEL TALMY

Richard Niles interviews Legendary producer SHEL TALMY

July 22, 2021

SHEL TALMY is one of the most innovative and influential record producers in popular music. It could be said, with a great deal of justification, that he created the SOUND of the 1960s. I’m talking about the power, the glory, the in-your-face gut punching power of rock. One thing you notice about Shel immediately is that you’re talking to a very clever man with a brain the size of Jupiter that got him on the Quiz Kids TV show. He worked  for 3 years in television, and then worked as an engineer at Conway Recorders in LA where he was able to learn how things worked - and then improved on it. Urged to go to London by an English colleague, Talmy entered and then dominated the Swinging’ scene like Julius Caesar conquering Gaul. History was made and remade again with hits by The Kinks and The Who, Manfred Mann, Pentangle, Lee Hazlewood and many more. So sit back and enjoy a chance to meet the creative force that is Shel Talmy.

Bass player Phil Spalding tells amusing (and frightening) stories of his crazy journey through the world of ROCK playing for Mick Jagger, Elton John, Robbie Williams, Toyah, Joe Cocker, Marcella Detroit and Seal. Together we wrote 4 songs recorded for Ray Charles on his Strong Love Affair album.

Maybe not exactly a “laff riot” – but certainly a RIOT!

MUSICIAN’S FUNNIES 02 - RICHARD NILES laughs with MO FOSTER

MUSICIAN’S FUNNIES 02 - RICHARD NILES laughs with MO FOSTER

June 22, 2021

Bassist/composer/author Mo Foster has credits any other musician would find tiring! Jeff Beck, Phil Collins, Brian May, Ringo Starr, Gil Evans, Van Morrison, Cliff Richard… I could go on but then I’d be too shagged out to continue this intro. Mo’s book British Rock Guitar is so much more than the unimaginative title suggests. Filled with fascinating facts and hysterical stories, this is the book to have when you’re on the loo after eating  a particularly challenging curry.

The best recommendation I can give you for this interview is that I prepared for it by wearing rubber undergarments - and I suggest you do the same.
