My 1990 interview with teen idol, David Cassidy.
When I spoke to him he had been living in the U.K, working in musical theatre and cut a record that was making waves on the radio charts in North America.
It was long after the glamour shots in Tiger Beat magazine and the 1970s sitcom The Partridge Family, when we had our six minute conversation on the phone. Cassidy had just turned 40.
The music station I was working at was playing a song from that album called “Lyin to Myself”. Our talk was one in a set of media interviews organized in Canada to promote the album, the song and an upcoming concert tour.
Episode 17: David Cassidy is also available on iTunes.
