Episode 50 - Chris Norman - of 'Smokie' fame
Show Notes

Chris is a musical inspiration !
In Smokie ( listen to why the spelling was changed from Smokey!) they had massive hits you will remember such as "Living Next Door to Alice',  'I'll meeet you at Midnight', 'Lay Back in the Arms of Someone', 'Midnight Lady' and many more!
Since leaving Smokie for his hugely successful solo career in 1986 he has released over 20 albums and continues to tour all over the world to this day.

He tells me how the band Smokie was born, about touring basically his whole life, and about being on Top of The Pops over 40 times!
We ended up chatting about how technology has changed over the years in the music and radio production industry! Turns out we're from the same era!

His latest album 'Rediscovered Love Songs' is out and he tells me how this one was conceived, his single from it is 'Always on My Mind' which is brilliant.
