Hospital Radio Barnet presenter Richard Edwards was granted an exclusive interview with the Righteous Brothers’ Bill Medley.
Bill was in London recently to promote a concert at Wembley Arena in November, which will be the first time he has ever performed in the UK.
Richard was the only hospital radio presenter in the country to gain access to Bill. The interview was broadcast exclusively on Hospital Radio Barnet last week, as part of Richard’s weekly lunchtime show.
Bill Medley told Richard how he worked as one half of the Righteous Brothers and recorded their big hit You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling, which was produced by Phil Spector. The record has become the most played record on the radio with over 8.5 million plays. Bill also recorded the popular song from Dirty Dancing “(I’ve had) The Time of My Life with Jennifer Warnes.”
Richard said: “it was a great honour to have the opportunity to talk with Bill Medley and to hear first hand how two of the most popular radio songs of all time were made and produced. I can’t wait to see him on stage at Wembley.”
Bill Medley performs ‘60’s – Unchained and Live’ for one night only November 2013 at Wembley arena along with Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, Ray Lewis lead singer of the Drifters and The Foundations.
