Interview: Bev Bevan (Purple Haze Podcast)

#988: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Nick Black is an Australian DJ who hosts a radio show in Melbourne entitled Purple Haze at 88.3 Southern FM. Nick contacted Yours Truly KJS/ELOBF just yesterday to highlight a recent telephone interview that he had conducted with Bev Bevan covering his career from his early days with Denny Laine & The Diplomats through to his time with The Move and ELO, right up to his involvement here in Yours Truly 2015 with Quill and Stand Up & Rock! alongside lifelong best pal Jasper Carrott.

Beginning with "Useless Information" and "Do Ya", this most enjoyable recorded interview is interspersed with plenty of familiar (and not so familiar) tracks and is a real treat to listen to. Bev is very complimentary of both Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne within the broadcast. The Move and ELO co-founder comes over as relaxed and he provides a wealth of recollections about his five decades in the business. The podcast can be accessed via this link thus:

ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommends The Purple Haze Archive @ 88.3 Southern FM to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO/Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, The Move, The Idle Race, 'Brum Beat', The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 07-Oct-2015
