2nd City Radio .. 14 February 2021
Lee joined Sam Kane on his Valentine's Day radio show for 2nd City Radio for a wide-ranging chat which, much to my delight after this year of COVID, included news of exciting projects ahead.

They include an upcoming role (as rock star Drew!) in the popular CBBC show The Dumping Ground and a possible new production of the musical Closer Than Ever which it is hoped will be filmed for streaming, possibly on Broadway HD. The show had a successful off Broadway run in 1989 and I enjoyed the Jermyn Street Theatre production back in 2014 ... I very much this comes to fruition! Also of course the rescheduled My Band and Me tour in the autumn and, COVID-permitting, a big West End concert to celebrate Lee's 40th birthday in July. There was talk too of his first live DVD and album and of the Norman Wisdom film which remains in development... so much to look forward to, for Lee and his fans!

The chat ended with a Valentine's dedication from Lee to Issy and a play of Everything from his fabulous 10 Years album. Lee and Sam know each other well from working together in panto - Cardiff's Cinderella in 2014/15 - and their ease and genuine respect for each other made for a really lovely interview.
