11 a.m.: The Bedazzled Radio Hour: Steve Marriot, Small Faces Host Spike Priggen will play his favorite Small Faces songs in honor of Steve Marriot's 67th birthday, which was celebrated just last week. The frontman for British hit-makers the Small Faces and Humble Pie, singer/guitarist Marriott was born Jan. 30, 1947 in London. A successful child actor, he played the role of the Artful Dodger in the musical "Oliver!" as a teen, but by the mid-1960s, he was working in a local music shop. There he met bassist Ronnie Lane, and agreed to jam with his band the Pioneers. Marriott soon joined the group full-time and, after adopting a sound influenced by American R&B and a look inspired by the Mod fashion trend, they rechristened themselves the Small Faces. Though best-known in the U.S. for their hit "Itchycoo Park," at home, the Small Faces enjoyed much greater success, reeling off a series of smashes including "All or Nothing," "My Mind's Eye" and "Lazy Sunday," as well as the 1968 classic LP Ogden's Nut Gone Flake. The chart popularity of "Lazy Sunday" rankled Marriot, however. He recorded the song as a joke and it was released despite his objections and when the more thoughtful "The Universal" failed to crack the Top 20, his dissatisfaction only increased. Marriot's tenure with the Small Faces ended after he stalked offstage during the group's New Year's Day performance in 1969. He soon recruited ex-Herd guitarist Peter Frampton to form the hard rock combo Humble Pie.
