With a Southend 'home town' gig rounding off the October leg of Lee Mead's Some Enchanted Evening tour, it was a near certainly that he'd be calling in to BBC Essex for a chat - and sure enough on Thursday 29 September he was live in the studio with Tony Fisher. They've met several times now and the interview was a very relaxed affair but well-researched too on Tony's part so informative, lively and a thoroughly good listen.
On arrival, Lee joined in the slightly surreal 'Gary the Gazelle' news quiz and was still around when the results of it were broadcast an hour or so later - you can hear those snippets on the iPlayer but I've kept the edit below to just the interview itself. With airplay for two tracks from the album which gives the tour its name - 'Luck Be A Lady' and 'I'll See You In My Dreams' - it whet the appetite very nicely not just for the Southend finale but the whole tour.
