A few weeks back, the News & Observer published one of our more ambitious projects: a remake of the iconic video for Raleigh rock band the Connells’ “’74-’75,” updated with new pictures and footage of the subjects from the original 1993 video. Since “’74-’75” was a pretty huge hit across Europe, we’ve been hoping this might get some attention over there — and I’m happy to report that the BBC in England, where “’74-’75” reached No. 14 in 1995, was kind enough to notice and reach out.
Thus it came to pass that BBC Radio had me on the air today to talk about it with host John Foster as well as one of the video’s subjects, standup comic Frank King. You can listen to that here, or below. And if you’ve not yet checked out the video (plus its accompanying stories), it’s worth a look.
