BACK TO MUSIC

Wiggy Podcast 3
PJ to the top of the Indie Charts

In which Billy describes how he came to record his first (mini) album of songs he had honed in live performances, and how he found out about a certain music manager by the name of Pete Jenner - formerly svengali of Pink Floyd, T-Rex, Ian Dury and the Blockheads, and the Clash.

Marvel as Billy describes his ingenious means of getting his demo in front of PJ - by pretending to be a TV engineer - and the famous curry incident that got his first record played by legendary Radio 1 DJ John Peel.

Wiggy tops and tails this episode, and prods Billy from time to time as the tale unfolds…

Recorded by Wiggy at Billy’s home in Dorset in December 2005
