Judie Tzuke


Our usual afternoon song selection is spiced with music from Judie Tzuke. (Mon-Fri 14:00-16:00 GMT)

Judie Tzuke enjoyed major chart success in 1979 with ‘Stay With Me Till Dawn’. Her early albums were for Elton John’s Rocket label. By 1996, somewhat disillusioned with the machinations of mainstream record labels, she decided to go it alone and established Big Moon Records.

Since that time, she has released a series of quality albums, and more recently has also lent her talents to albums by artists such as Tom Baxter and Morcheeba.

In 2018-9 she toured with Beverley Craven and Julia Fordham.

David Randall chatted to Jude in September 2016.  The first part discusses her current activities (above)

The second part (above) features a selection of more obscure Judie Tzuke tracks.

I’ve always loved Judie. I was 16 when she first released Stay With Me Till Dawn and she was the first person I ever saw in concert and she’s never stopped being a part of my life since. This was one of the best interviews I’ve heard with Judie, with some brilliant questions and observations by the interviewer. Thank you for this very enjoyable hour. Now on to Part 2!
