Gary Crowley

Gary Crowley is a voice and face recognisable to many through his various radio show, tv presenting and documentary appearances over the last 40 years.

Gary’s interview CV is a veritable who’s who of major names in music and film including Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Jack Lemmon, Paul Weller and many more.

Gary has been the subject of a short film by Mono Media Films ‘The Life, The Music and the Hairstyles’ and will be taking part in a rare Q&A taking about his career, his love of music and passion for radio broadcasting.

Gary’s latest project is a compilation album entitled ‘Gary Crowley’s Lost 80s’
Lost 80s presents 63 tracks that are a welcome alternative to the ‘fluffy manufactured pop’ that ruled the airwaves in the U.K. and USA through the 1980S.

Expertly complied across a 4 CD Box Set and 3 ‘themed’ LPs, veer from ‘Jingly Jangly’ indie-pop, to the edge of New Romantic, and a wide range of under the radar, genre-defining dance floor grooves.

Many of these tracks are rare and hard to find, having not appeared on CDs or LPs since their original 80s release.

You will have the opportunity to buy a signed copy of the album and meet the curator on the night.
