I’ve adapted Pauline Butcher’s memoir: “Freak Out – My life with Frank Zappa” for the afternoon drama slot on BBC Radio 4.
The play is called “Frank Zappa and Me” and it goes out at 2.15pm on Tuesday 6th March 2014.
The details are here.
My 2-part radio drama Demon Brother is on Radio 4 next week.
(Wed 22nd & Thurs 23rd January 2014 BBC Radio 4 – 2.15pm)
It’s a dark psychological thriller about a pair of twins – Jasper and Eddie – who have been estranged all their lives, until their dad dies – They’re both played by Shaun Dingwall.
Part 1 is Jasper’s Story and from his point of view, Part 2 is Eddie’s – it’s best to listen to them in order – as there is a bigger story going on in there.
Also in the cast we have – Valene Kane, Kenneth Cranham, Vera Filatova, Simon Ludders, and John Norton. It is produced/directed by James Robinson.
We recorded the play in the bbc studio in Cardiff – (lovely team.)
The Radio Times Preview can be found here

***Update – 7th Feb 2014 ****
Just want to say thanks for the kind comments I’ve received about this play. -MB
My play about the uneasy relationship between film director Michael Reeves and actor Vincent Price – on the set of seminal 60s English horror movie “The Witchfinder General” – was first broadcast on Radio 4 in the Saturday play slot in 2010.
It’s now been brought to my attention that the play can be listened to Here
There’s also a very good and insightful review / essay written about the play that is HERE – (Even if they do get the title of the play slightly wrong!)
I remember having a roaring time recording the play in Cardiff. The cast included: Kenneth Cranham as Tony Tenser, Nickolas Grace as Vincent Price, and Blake Ritson as Michael Reeves.
*UPDATE* – 1st March 2013-
“Vincent Price and the Horror of the English Blood Beast” will be repeated on Radio 4 next Friday (8th March) evening at 9pm.
*UPDATE* – 7th November 2015 – just seen that the play is up on Youtube.
