A Tribute to Peter Skellern

Late last week we heard of the death of a great musi­cian and song­writer, Peter Skellern. He was respon­si­ble for some mag­nif­i­cent pieces of music — many will recall his ear­ly 1970s hit, You’re A Lady for exam­ple, with its expan­sive arrange­ment includ­ing brass band and choir. He also spe­cialised in mar­vel­lous ren­di­tions of clas­sic peri­od songs.

To cel­e­brate his life, we are fea­tur­ing a selec­tion of his songs tak­en from sev­er­al of his albums. In addi­tion we have a very spe­cial trib­ute to Skellern record­ed by our friend Mike Brown, a pre­sen­ter on CHBN Radio in Truro, Corn­wall — not far from Skellern’s home in Fowey. Mike presents the sto­ry of Peter Skellern’s life in music and he plays sev­er­al of his songs — includ­ing mate­r­i­al from his band Oasis with Julian Lloyd-Web­ber, Mitch Dal­ton and Mary Hop­kin. We are most grate­ful to Mike and to CHBN for mak­ing this pro­gramme avail­able. It runs for about 30 min­utes and will be broad­cast at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic Time (19:00 and 03:00 in the UK).
