WIYE Presents | Gary Crowley/ Eamonn Forde


We’re delighted to announce 2 entertaining speakers!

The first is the writer, DJ and broadcaster Gary Crowley who started out on punk fanzines, joined the NME, became a DJ at Wag Club and then carved an eventful career on Capital Radio and music TV, XFM – with Ricky Gervais – and BBC London, interviewing Literally Anyone Of Any Note in the process (and introducing Oasis onstage at Knebworth). He’s just compiled a terrific box-set of ’80s pop curios which you can find out more about¬†here.

And our second guest is the garrulous journalist Eamonn Forde who’s published the dumbfounding tale of the 2007 takeover and decline of EMI and how the fall-out affected McCartney, Radiohead, Blur, Kate Bush, Pink Floyd and countless others. A defining 21st Century business fiasco gets the full colour treatment. Get your copy¬†here.
