Pop: The History Makers presents regular two-part interviews with icons of popular culture who have made history with their work. These can be pop stars, video directors, producers, remixers, writers, series or film directors, or even album cover designers. Most of them I have so far chose started their careers in the 70s, 80s, or 90s and have since created popular culture history.
Part 1 of each podcast interview looks at how the star became successful, where their drive originated, and what they felt success would bring them, and what it actually did.
Part 2 focuses on the period after their first commercial success, where they are in their creative life today, how they now look back at their careers, and what is now important to them.
Pop: The History Makers is not just an insight into some of our favorite pop stars, video directors, producers, remixers, writers, series or film directors, or even album cover designers who came to prominence during the 70s, 80s, and 90s. This is an opportunity for me to revisit the many stars I'd interviewed during my time as News Managing Editor and Presenter at MTV Europe in the late 80s and early 90s. I hope the interviews provide an insight into how we all change, what it takes to create popular cultural history, and reveals what we have been able to learn along the way.
