I think of this as my first real show as I spent the first one in a complete panic over the mixing desk, the second one in a partial panic over the mixing desk, and my third guest left in the middle of the episode to pick his son up from school. So Alan, the founder of Creation Records, the man who discovered and managed Oasis and who was, in effect, responsible for determining the sound of a generation, was really my first relaxed experience of a radio interview. Thing is, when he and I get together we can talk forever. Creation Stories, the movie of his life (written by Irvine Welsh and directed by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle), is out next year.
Listen to us here.
