Episode thirteen: Tex Perkins – ‘Tex’ , and Mark Holden- ‘My Idol Years’


To day we hear from Tex Perkins  reading, under slight duress on a hot day at a Byron Writers Festival, from his book entitled simply ‘Tex’, in which he reveals he  was never dismayed that he wasn’t taken seriously as a musician, he never wanted to be serious as a musician – and Mark Holden  reads from ‘ My Idol Years’  about one of the highlights of his career, singing with the Temptations.

Featured music tracks : ‘How Good is Life’  & ‘One step ahead of the Blues ‘ by  Tex, Don and Charlie .

Recorded at the Byron writers Festival 2017
