Pilot of the Nightwaves: Dotun Adebayo

Nigerian Londoner and broadcaster Dotun Adebayo is an overnight success. Night after night! He’s cornered the market in nocturnal radio on BBC Radio 5 live and BBC Radio London for years. But can he really have learnt Swedish within weeks, or have been a child movie actor, or have lived in a London squat (or two)?

Listen and learn as Adrian Lacey teases out the facts. And what’s that saying about truth being stranger than fiction?

Rock Legend: Norman Castle

Spoof rock’n’roll documentary starring Russell Thomas with guest appearances by Kim Cattrall and Gavin Alexander. From the pop high of Sugar ‘n’ Spice to the breathtaking ambition of rock opera The Tanktop Mikado, Norman Castle – former frontman of the Broadwicks – occupies a unique place in British musical life.

This profile hears how he got into the business due to a misunderstanding and how his foray into rap was electrifying… almost literally.

You’ll also hear from former Broadwicks bassist Peggy Babcock on touring with the boys, plus lead guitarist Neville Rice on Prince and plumbing.
