Supertroopers

A fascinating ‘access all areas’ podcast series, Supertroopers is entertaining and informative, throwing the spotlight on those backstage who lit up the rock and roll shows of the 1970’s and beyond. I was in the thick of it and, with others who were there, recall the setting up of what was the top lighting and production company in Europe and what life was like on the road with rock music’s superstars. Told with humour and affection, our stories feature an elephant, a snake, trips on private planes and trains, exploding lighting boards and much, much more. I hope you enjoy it. Chris.
