Bill Kenwright's Golden Years Episode 1 31st October 2017

Only 4 episodes this season, Bill is a very busy man. No Everly Brothers songs this week but I am sure he will play one or two on the other 3 shows to come.

He is playing some great artists and some different songs but that is how Bill does it, he finds the unusual ones out. LaVern Baker, 2 from the Crickets, Duane Eddy, Eddie Cochran and many more.

As usual these BBC shows last 30 days.

I was hoping to post this show yesterday but I had things to doSmile

This is the Steve Wright show and he is in Nashville with Tim Smith for the Country Awards which were presented last night.

Isn't it great how the BBC covers so many things in the US or about US artists?

Steve and Tim are live from Nashville, USA, in the build up to the biggest night in country music, the 51st annual CMA Awards. The Big Show is broadcasting from the iconic Music Row and they chat to the biggest stars in town, including legendary artists Tim McGraw and Faith Hill who have announced they're bringing their highly acclaimed and record breaking Soul2Soul tour to the UK as part of the 2018 Country to Country Festival. Kelsea Ballerini, a rising star in the US who's become the first female country artist to go to number 1 with her first three consecutive singles is also on the show and has recently supported Lady Antebellum on a UK arena tour. Also on the show is Scott Borchetta, the President and CEO of Big Machine Label group and the man who discovered Taylor Swift. There's live music in the studio from duo Dan + Shay who've toured across America alongside Darius Rucker and Blake Shelton and they're now set to tour the UK later this year.

Steve and Tim head out on the streets of downtown Nashville to find out exactly what a 'Honky Tonk' is, why all the bars are so full of music and what makes the city the home of country music. They also take a trip to Prince's Hot Chicken Shack to find out how their legendary fried chicken is made and why it's so popular and spreading to the UK. Plus they get the lowdown on the 'Nashville' look from the stars of the hugely successful TV show that's become a worldwide hit.

There will also be the latest news on the CMA Awards themselves. They'll be talking to American radio host Nada Taha about who'll be performing live on the night, the big surprises in store and who's going to walk away with the top prizes including Entertainer Of The Year.

If Steve is still doing his show today from Nashville I will post it later. Enjoy.

Two Everly Brothers songs back to back. Last show next week, I hope he plays some more of their songs.

Full list of artists appearing on this show:

So many on Bill Kenwright's show have connections to Phil and Don, such as:

Duane Eddy, Ricky Nelson, Lonnie Donegan, Joe South, Adam Faith, Brenda Lee, Elvis Presley.

Bill is still the major share holder in the Football club (Soccer) "Everton" which is on the other side of the Mersey river to Liverpool but both clubs are in the City of Liverpool. The camera usually goes to show Bill to the TV audience when he is attending an "Everton" football match which he does often.

Bill is also very much involved with the West End of London, putting productions on the stage, he is very successful at doing this too.

In his younger days he was an actor in one of the UK's biggest soaps on TV.

Last year he wasn't too well for a while and so the radio show was held back for a while. I know he is a busy man and I am sure that is why this year there are only 4 episodes of his popular show "Golden Years".

Amazing how many musical and personal connections that The Everly Brothers had over the span of their careers!!

It wasn't just joint appearances, but collaborations on composing, backing on recordings. and also solid friendships.

Duane Eddy, Ricky Nelson, and Brenda Lee have been cited in several other comments on this thread.

Thanks for the posting, Chris! The information is much appreciated!
