ON AIR: The New Classical FM

From John Barry to BB King! Legendary promotor Richard Flohil is on the podcast

Art At the End of the World2020-3-9By: Classical Staff

This week on the “Art at the End of the World” Podcast, Mark Wigmore welcomes music promoter, publicist, talent incubation specialist and journalist Richard Flohil. Now 85-years-old, the fixture of the Canadian music scene reflects on his early introduction to show business as a newspaper man in the UK, his choice to move to Toronto, and his instant love of the city’s wonderfully odd music scene. Richard shares personal stories covering jazz, blues, folk and rock musicians including Louis Armstrong, Muddy Waters, BB King, Bonnie Raitt, Ani Difranco, Serena Ryder, Leon Redbone & film composer John Barry!

Still very active in the scene, Richard offers 3 hot Toronto music club tips for those looking for a great afternoon or evening out, explains the concept behind a new memoir, and frames the massive changes he’s witnessed within the arts and entertainment business.
