I first started to be obsessed with showtunes in the 80s. Being a teenager in the Midlands it was rare I visited the West End so buying cast recording and soundtracks became my hobby.
I collected as many as I could some new, some second hand. I built up a decent collection and played them constantly in my bedroom and had my own ‘songs from the show’ hospital radio show.
So have you been to a festival? I was a bit of a late starter and it wasn’t until I was in was my forties that started going to the Isle of Wight festival each June.
This year was my fifth year – am I rock chick? Certainly not!
I am not even a big music fan, some of the other girls laugh at me and my lack of knowledge about the music scene – but I don’t care! It is all about the company.
