A Gene Clark Special As Hosted By Neon Brambles :-
We loved 2019's reissue of Gene Clark's classic album 'No Other' and Indigo Mariana from The Songs of Gene Clark: The Gene Clark Website page kindly set about making a special program about Gene & his music for the station to air.
Gene famed for his work in The Byrds, Dillard & Clark and The New Christy Minstrels. Perhaps though, it’s his pioneering work within American band The Byrds that is most well known. Gene was The Byrds main songwriter between 1964 and early 1966 penning such classics as ‘I’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better’, ‘I’ll Set You Free This Time’ and ‘She Don’t Care About Time’. Although commercial solo success eluded him, Gene’s incredible gift for songwriting has rightly earned him legions of fans.
We originally broadcast Indigo's 2 hour program Christmas Eve 2019 and then again - Sunday the 26th of January 2020.
'Gene Clark: Sounds from the Cosmic Range’ features songs that influenced and led up to Gene's 1974 solo masterpiece “No Other”, and explores what came after.
Indigo Mariana airing some deep cuts and live selections from Gene’s career... including a few surprises!
