The Slade Story

The Slade Story podcast at is a rework of the BBC Radio 2’s documentary ”The Boyz From The Black Country” from 1998. In 1998 the documentary was presented by Toyah Wilcox, but this ”new” Slade Story is presented by Stuart Maconie, rock music writer, BBC Radio 2 broadcaster and cultural historian. The narration has been altered a bit and a bit more of the interviews with Nod, Dave, Jim and Don can be heard, but all in all The Slade Story is pretty much the same as the 1998 documentary. If you don’t have that already The Slade Story is really worth its money, if you do, then maybe there are better ways to spend £ 5, although the overall impression of the “new” version is better than the old one.
