The Bedazzled Radio Hour: Joe Meek Birthday Tribute (Audio)

Apr 05, 2017
Hosted and produced by Spike Priggen.
A birthday tribute to English record producer and songwriter Joe Meek. Robert George "Joe" Meek (born 5 April 1929) is best remembered for writing and producing the Tornados' instrumental "Telstar" (1962), which became the first record by a British group to reach number one in the US Hot 100. His reputation for experiments in recording music was acknowledged by the Music Producers Guild who in 2009 created "The Joe Meek Award for Innovation in Production" as an "homage to [the] remarkable producer's pioneering spirit". Produced by Spike Priggen.
