Lee spent a day in a tiny Essex studio talking to BBC local radio stations around the country about his new Lee Mead 10 Year Anniversary album on the day before its release and two days before his Anniversary Tour opened with sold-out shows in Newbury and Milton Keynes. Both album and tour celebrate an amazing decade since he first won and played the role of Joseph in the West End.
He mentioned that he was due to have 13 such chats - four went out live on the day and others in the days that followed (check the Timeline index for links to those). I think one or two may have escaped into the wild, but the last two I know about were aired today. Both had also been aired previously (see details below) but a different track was played in the second this time round - airplay for Lee's first solo recording of Close Every Door from Joseph, which you can hear in full on the BBC's listen again service (available for 29 days post broadcast), while a brief snippet is included in the audio edit below.
