An Evening With Gambo

Legendary broadcaster Paul Gambaccini celebrates his 45th anniversary in the business in 2018 and will be appearing live at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds on Sun 8th April. An Evening With The Great Gambo – The Professor of Pop will see the current BBC Radio 2 Pick of the Pops presenter reveal for the first time how he started out life as a boy in the Bronx and wound up as The Professor of Pop in Great Britain (Sun 8 Apr).

Accomplished broadcaster, journalist and author Paul Gambaccini will share his unique lifetime experiences and stories, amongst which will be clips of some of the great artists he has known and worked with. Paul will share tales of growing up with the phenomenon of Elvis Presley as a child and the Beatles as a teenager; how he got into radio; his early experiences with Rolling Stone magazine; his fascinating years as a radio and television broadcaster and of course lots of behind the scenes tales.

Hear him discuss the three great crises of his life – coping with the Vietnam War’s challenge to his American generation, enduring the era of AIDS and surviving an encounter with the Metropolitan Police. Paul remains the only broadcaster to have had regular series on BBC Radios 1, 2, 3 and 4. He was one of the founder presenters on Classic FM, where his Classic Countdown was the highest-rated classical music programme in UK history. He has also had regular television runs on BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky
