Friday Round Up with Alfie Boe: No. 12

Another busy week for Alfie – lots of radio promotional appearances (both live and recorded) which means the Classic Quadrophenia PR machine is cranking up big time.

Most of the radio chat centred around the forthcoming Quadrophenia in great interviews with James Watt of Radio Stoke, Andy Potter on Radio Derby and Stephen Foster of Radio Suffolk.  Interesting discussion (with Andy Potter) on what crossover means – according to Alfie (and it’s something he’s said a lot before), crossover means the fans crossing over to discover different types of music.  It’s not a genre of music by itself!

Thanks to Marcia six are now on you tube:

Also, this week, Alfie added to his charitable causes by becoming the patron and music champion of BD Music Hub.  This comprises a group of partner organisations who work together to ensure that that the children and young people of Blackburn and Darwen get as many quality musical opportunities as they can, both in school settings and in the community.  Click here to see more about what they do.

Along similar lines, Alfie has also lent his name to the Blackpool Gazette’s Give Us A Tune music appeal which aims to subsidise music lessons for students at Blackpool Music Academy.  They are asking for 50 musical instruments and £20,000 to be donated to ensure a lasting music legacy in the resort.
