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 opens with sell-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 - so far, I've only identified 9 of them and the first four, which went out live on the day, are detailed below. There was airplay for a number of tracks from the new album - you can hear these in full on the BBC's listen again service (available for 29 days post broadcast) while brief snippets are included in the audio edits below. You'll find the later interviews (and much more besides) on the Timeline index.
