Don’t forget ‘The Thing About Syd’ on Saturday, BBC Radio 2 at 8PM (UK time). David is one of many interviewed for this new documentary about the Madcap genius.
You can listen online, with live streaming, or you can ‘Listen Again’ – a feature that allows you to repeat the programme as many times as you like for a period of seven days following the original broadcast.
To ‘Listen Again’, please see the purple/lilac box on the right of the Radio 2 homepage (where it says “Listen to your favourite shows anytime”) and click LISTEN. This will open the BBC Radio Player.
Fans in the United States can see David’s excellent ‘Live From Abbey Road’ performance on the Sundance Channel tonight.
If you miss tonight’s broadcast at 10PM E/P, there are plenty of repeats coming up. The Sundance Channel will be showing it again on Saturday (at 2AM), Sunday (at 9PM) and Tuesday (at 6PM).
I hope you enjoy it as much as Dick Parry (above) seemed to when he was at the recording.
The Sundance Channel is available via satellite and cable television.
If you spot the series in your local TV listings, do let us know when and where others can see it.
Here’s the latest from Phil. Our thanks to everybody who submitted a question for him.
Phil answered a good batch of questions, so please appreciate that he will not be answering any additional ones, no matter how good they are. I’m sorry if you missed out.
And please hold on to your questions for David. I’m not ready for them just yet, but look forward to seeing what you’ve come up with.
I’ll open the floodgates towards the end of next week, possibly the week after.
What were the stand-out moments from the ‘On an Island’ tour for you? (Victor)
So many. Playing the Royal Albert Hall with all those guests…
I noticed huge grins on your face both nights at Massey Hall as David did extended solo flights during a few numbers. If you recall at all, what was going through your mind at the time? (Buffalo Phil)
That he was giving it a bit of welly and enjoying himself.
I loved watching you perform because you have such a groovy “wiggle” when you play. Are you able to let go and enjoy the music or are you focused on the piece at hand – or are the two not mutually exclusive? (Nickster)
Steady on there, Nickster. The resident PR is reading the answers! It’s good to lose yourself in the music, provided that you don’t lose your place in the music.
