In Conversation with 'Whispering' Bob Harris | Part 3

The Cutlery Club Conversations

In this final part of my conversation with Bob we talk more on love, family, friendship, Pina Coladas, cricket, toast......we really cover some ground! This conversation may have ended here, but I am thrilled to say we have forged the most wonderful friendship as a result of this time together. We are kindred spirits when it comes to our love of music and nature and I am now blessed to call him a friend and enjoy many more chats with him, week on week. If you have enjoyed listening to us chatting, please leave a comment and share with other Bob fans.  Thanks for listening. Love, Isobel

In Conversation with 'Whispering' Bob Harris | Part 2

The Cutlery Club Conversations

After nipping off for a delicious lunch at The White Hart in Fyfield, one of Bob's favourite gastro pubs, we head back to his home studio where we continue our lovely conversation. I delve a little deeper into the man behind the voice and Bob, as relaxed and generous as ever, shares his thoughts and feelings, in the most natural and unguarded way - on his health, the break up of his third marriage, and near death experience when he suffered an aortic dissection.   And as always, he throws in a couple of fab stories along the way. I'm sure Bob fans will love this!  I hope you enjoy. Isobel

In Conversation with 'Whispering' Bob Harris OBE | Part 1

The Cutlery Club Conversations

In this episode of The Cutlery Club Conversations, I get to chat with music broadcasting legend, Bob Harris OBE. And what a sweet and kind soul he is. We were so thrilled to have him guest host one of The Cutlery Club Salons earlier this year at Wilton's Music hall, so it was a HUGE bonus when he also agreed to record the podcast with me. Nerve wrecking for me, but thrilling all the same. You'll discover in this first episode, it's impossible to ask Bob a question without getting a story in response. I think he should be re-named 'The Story Teller' as his memory is quite remarkable and his stories totally beguiling. Is there anyone in the music industry he hasn't met, interviewed or hung out with? I doubt it! So this was an incredible moment for me and a huge privilege to spend time with him, in his home studio, chatting away like old friends. And why would I try and condense this podcast episode to 30/45 minutes when I am lucky enough to have had this time with Bob, and him being so forthcoming and generous with his time. So, here's the First Course. Get tucked in and let's hope it whet's your appetite for the Main Course, coming soon! Isobel | The Cutlery Club Founder & Curator
