John Otway can hardly be described as rock and roll’s greatest success, but has he used, what some would call, failure to create a job that has kept him going for over thirty years? In this documentary John explores his life, career and his greatest failures to find out how he has kept himself, and his band, in a job for three times longer than the Beatles could manage. [Bill Leuty]
I still think he's one of the UK's greatest songwriters, him and Ian Dury share the top spot.
And of course Sunday was his birthday. Another year gone and no closer to fame.
This is an brilliant piece done for radio by Bill Leuty from London, England.
