Journalist Louise Poynton has been a fan since 1971 and her book Cherish David Cassidy - A Legacy of Love, published April 2020, has been nominated for a Best Book award in the United States.
She gives readers a grandstand seat for a journey from the 1970s when teenagers all over the world first fell in love with the biggest teen idol of that decade.
This podcast series is a companion to the book with fans speaking in their own words about their lives and sharing more of their stories and cherished memories.
The David Cassidy Connections offers a mix of interviews with fans, friends and colleagues who worked with him as they reflect on his music and career and how it influenced their own career path.
Louise, who for more than 20 years was a Sports Editor on regional newspapers in the UK, invited fans to share their memories of falling in love with him; they explain in raw honesty why he has been so important in their lives.
A project she started working on a couple of years before David died, she was overwhelmed with heartfelt stories from around the world, which not only celebrate his life but paint a picture of the personal journey fans have been through over the past 50 years.
This year marks would have been his 70th birthday - April 12 -50 years since The Partridge Family was first aired on television, and I Think I Love You was the biggest selling record of the year, outselling Let It Be.
Now in a celebration of his life, fans, friends and peers including Neil Sedaka, explain in their own words how David impacted on them, his influence and friendship; the lasting legacy of love and music he left.
These memories, which echo across time, have been written by his fans in their own words, and now they talk in this series about him. Cherish also includes a collection of beautiful poems composed over the past 50 years, many previously unpublished stunning images from professional photographers and portraits drawn by fans.
Every story in Cherish is a singular experience, a thematic journey but when brought together they provide stops on the adventure with David at the heart of everything his fans have ever done.
