On Sunday 4 March Steve Overland chats to David Randall on David’s weekly show on Get Ready to ROCK! Radio. The feature will include tracks from the new album.
Says David: “Get Ready to ROCK! has supported FM since 2007 when they reformed and featured many album and gig reviews. We were there at the Metropolis album launch in February 2010 – their “comeback” album – and it is timely to catch up with the band again via our chat with Steve ahead of a new album release.”
The interview – to be broadcast at 22:00 GMT on Sunday 4 March – will be followed by Steve’s own selection in the “Favourite Tracks from Favourite Artists” series which features those artists and songs that have inspired and influenced him over the years.
