I LISTENED TO THE RADIO A LOT AS A KID, AND ONE OF MY EARLY RADIO MEMORIES IS HEARING PETULA CLARK SINGING “DOWNTOWN”. IT’S A GREAT SONG, WRITTEN FOR HER BY TONY HATCH, AND BECAME THE FIRST OF MANY HIT RECORDS FOR PETULA CLARK.
So imagine how excited I was this morning when I got to interview Petula Clark! She’s coming to FNQ in March, to begin an Australian tour, PETULA CLARK – Once More with Love, at the Cairns Civic Theatre on March 2nd.

Petula also performs in Townsville on March 3rd.
Petula Clark began her showbiz career on British radio during WW2, was one of the pioneers of UK television, she was a successful film actress and all of that before she began her recording career. She had a string of hit songs through the 60s, and has branched out into stage musicals and theatre
Here is this morning’s interview with Petula Clark.
