The enquiries of a butterfly mind. Rhod Sharp, Up All Night on BBC 5 Live for 26 years, hears from creatives cut adrift by Covid in the opening numbers of a podcast aimed at putting him back in the conversation.

    Up On the Roof — An Up All Night Flashback

    Up On the Roof — An Up All Night Flashback

    It was 50 years ago to the day when four of the very few people in the world who can actually say “I was there” talked to RHOD SHARP about The Beatles’ rooftop concert on January 30, 1969. In a conversation broadcast on BBC 5 Live’s Up All Night in 2019, Let It Be director Michael Lindsay-Hogg, Apple Corps’ Kevin Harrington and Ken Mansfield and Metropolitan police constable Ken Wharfe provide a fresh take on the events depicted anew in Peter Jackson’s extended documentary.

    Risk! Heather Cairns and Rick Boyd: Further adventures of The Google Lady and the Bitcoin Guy.

    An extraordinary gamble in early 2020 made RICK BOYD rich. But since we spoke back in March of 2021, it’s been a torrid spring for Bitcoin investors. Would you be OK with it? Is he? And whatever happened after HEATHER CAIRNS realized some of the torrent of wealth that came her way when Google went public? It’s all about risk, after all.

    Our Town - Heather Cairns: How it all began, with Google Employee Number 4

    It all began with… a Chinese dinner? Or did it begin when HEATHER CAIRNS would invigilate the tests taken by two “child prodigy” graduate students in the engineering faculty at Stanford. Anyway, one thing led to another. Heather eventually returned to her home town on Boston’s North Shore where people still call her The Google Lady.

Nobody does it better than Rhod!!

Oh how much I loved listening to Rhod on Up all night!! it was the very happy sound to my sleep for many years from the 90’s into the 2000’s! great radio broadcaster and much missed on the 5 live overnight schedule ( oh why oh why did the BBC let him go??) but very happy to have found him on here and have enjoyed the first few episodes I have listened to so far 😊
