Word Podcast 357 - Andy Neill on Ready, Steady, Go!

Updated 4 months ago.

In which the author of 'Ready Steady Go!: the Weekend Starts Here' talks about the show that revolutionised pop TV - the people who made it, the acts that appeared, the dancers, the clothes, the James Brown shock-the-nation-special, the Troggs auditioning in reception, the '60s scene-makers packing its Green Room and how it captured what Mick Jagger calls "the wonderful chaos of the times". Andy's book is the most detailed and affectionate tribute imaginable and you're strongly advised to take a look at it.
