Tuesday 15/01/19 at 10PM (UK) – Guest presenter, podcaster & archivist Indigo Mariana (@neon_brambles on twitter) hosted a special 2 hour program focusing on the music of Gene Clark, Gene famed for his work in The Byrds, Dillard & Clark and The New Christy Minstrels. Gene went on to release a number of superb solo albums too, including the seminal 1974 LP ‘No Other’. 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 alluded him, Gene’s incredible gift for songwriting has rightly earned him legions of fans. Neon Brambles showcased the many sides of Gene Clark’s music Tuesday 15/01 in a program called ‘Clouds and Dreams’.
