    Creageivity 18 - with Composer and Conductor Lucas Richman

    As Adrienne points out in Creageivity 18, listing the many and varied accomplishments of composer, musician, GRAMMY award winning conductor and writer LUCAS RICHMAN is quite the task. Coming from a family of performers, including his actor father and mother, Peter Mark Richman and Helen Richman, Lucas knew from early on that he would be a musician, and as we hear in this episode, at 17 he was commissioned to write the score for A Streetcar Named Desire. Lucas gives fascinating insights i...

    Creageivity 16 - with Us! (Adders & Harl)

    Our planned guest for this episode was unable to join us, so we made the creative decision to fall back on our own resources, with Adrienne Thomas the special guest of Harlan Cockburn and vice versa. Back in the 1970s we met at Maidstone Art College in Kent, southern England, and the journeys there were similar... but different: Adrienne battled for her place, and Harlan arrived by accident. Hear about 'Honouring your mistakes as hidden intentions', the magic of Captain Beefheart, and the blo...

    Creageivity 15 - with Singer / Songwriter / Performer Graham McGregor-Smith

    Graham McGregor-Smith took a long detour as a Chartered Accountant, and then stay-at-home Dad before eventually launching himself into music. Having started with a love of AC/DC, he became influenced by the Great American Songbook, with artists such as Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. However it was many years before he was able to progress things, when a chance meeting in a park led to him start realising that he can write highly melodic, lyrically-charged songs, and - as he says in the podca...

    Creageivity 13 - with Movie Set Designer and Jeweller Mark Rimmell

    To describe MARK RIMMELL as a movie set designer, or as a jeweller, is to barely scratch the surface of an extraordinarily rich and varied life. Mark starts us off with his birth in the slums of London's East End in 1933, followed by incredibly difficult years. Gradually he overcame many obstacles and his creativity began to flower as a singer, and through an appreciation of fabrics. As a young man, moving back to London from Northamptonshire, Mark ran an antiques shop and started...
