Isle of Wight Radio .. 19 July 2015
Lee Mead on IOW Radio, July 2015 Lee Mead was the first hour guest on Isle of Wight Radio's Sunday afternoon show John Hannam Meets on Sunday 19 July. The leisurely format, allowing a full hour for each guest (including a liberal scattering of music), and a face to face interview in a London studio when both were in town recently, allowed for a more in depth interview than most.

John led Lee gently through his career from its earliest days on that now infamous Portsmouth to Bilbao ferry, via his first steps into musical theatre, his breakthrough with Any Dream Will Do and all that has followed since on stage, TV, musically and, with the lightest of touches, personally.

The reason for the interview was of course Lee's new 'Some Enchanted Evening' tour which calls at Shanklin Theatre, Isle of Wight on Sunday 2 August. Lee last visited Shanklin in 2013 and with this all new show harking back to the golden age of Hollywood musicals, which he previewed in three intimate gigs at London's Pheasantry in late June and which opened in Bedworth a few hours after the interview was aired, his return visit is sure to be a hot ticket!
