Radio 2: The Shows

Round Midnight

Brian Matthew, immediately prior to rumination on Dennis Potter and the rise of the 'Graphic Novel'BRIAN MATTHEW-helmed attempt at doing a radio version of those hazy late-night highbrow arts review TV shows, which basically involved him chatting to someone involved with a broadsheet-bigged-up exhibition and then getting a Rory McGrath level comic in to read out a list of ‘funnies’ they’d written down on an A4 sheet.

    The theme tune to this was an instrumental of Cat Stevens’ Matthew and Son, very clever, very funny, very – here, wait a minute, who was the “son” supposed to be in this show?

    Hi Brian

    I hope you can help me. I am trying to identify the actual track that was used as the signature tune of your program Round Midnight. I remember fondly listening to you shows and waiting for the last slow beat of the track to finish before falling asleep.

    Thanks Brian!!

    Best regards
