I’m often asked, after the hundreds of radio interviews I’ve done over the years, if I remember which was the first one. Well, that would have been Nick Laird-Clowes of The Dream Academy. In December of 1985, just as “Life In A Northern Town” was starting to make it’s mark on college radio, I traveled into NYC to record an interview with Nick at the offices of Warner Brothers Records.
