The Dad Pill

Sunday 12-2pm

Mark Nevin is a songwriter. He wrote the Number-One song ‘Perfect’ for his band Fairground Attraction and had four top-40 hits as co-writer with Morrissey.

His songs have been recorded by David Bowie, Ringo Starr, Joe Cocker, Mica Paris and loads of others. He also wrote extensively with the late, great Kirsty MacColl. Besides this, he is a psychotherapist, so he knows what your dreams mean.

“I am one of eight children and Sundays in our house meant church and Sunday roast. Between the two, while the potatoes were in the oven, my dad played his records, good and loud. He was Welsh and loved to sing along. With furrowed brow he earnestly emulated his musical heroes, Mario Lanza, Harry Secombe, Val Doonican, all those proper singers with great songs. Now I’m a dad myself, I will try to do him justice and invite you to join me playing good old tunes for dads and the people who love them.”
