[Updated] Andy Fox from the Welsh radio station GTFM continues to provide an excellent coverage to all things Purple. This week he will be interviewing Ian Gillan in celebration of the Made in Japan reissue. His Rockshow is on the air every Thursday at 21:00 and can be listened worldwide online. For further listening options visit www.gtfm.co.uk or www.bcfm.org.uk (with the latter offering a much better sound quality option).

The show will be available to ‘listen again’ after the fact from the archive.

Thanks to Yvonne Osthausen for the info.

    I read some time back an interviewer praising Made in Japan and his answer was that he has never listened to it.

    The presenter of this show Andy Fox is a big Deep Purple fan and a rock fan, he does the show for love and doesn’t get paid.
    The Deep Purple special took place in hour two and lasted for forty minutes plus, including track from the archives and an interview with Ian Gillan.
    I suggest you listen to the whole show next time!
    The ‘listen again’ link is http://gtfmrockshow.wordpress.com/author/rockofages/
    The interview will be up from Sunday onwards.

    Interpolating a interview from a old archive!

    I did not hear that at the beginning..

    Couldnt they contact Roger?
    he is Welsh, isnt he?

    I DID listen to the whole show.

    An old interview is not exactly exiting.

    Maybe they just dont care.

    And it should have been released 2 years ago because of the 49th Anniversary anyway.

    But hey, thats the way we do it.

    Les Hedger says:

    I wonder if anyone did new interviews with Ritchie, Roger, Ian P, or Ian G for the new MIJ release.

    Heather Kear says:

    As was explained the interview was an archive interview with Ian Gillan, the band are currently touring the world so are unavailable for current interviews.
    Perhaps EMI/Universal should have put the remasters out on the 40th anniversary although you would have to take that up with them!
    In defence of Coverage From GTFM no other national station have recognised it!!
