#40 - Ronan Keating (Interview Show)

Keating sprung to stardom as a teenager in Boyzone but has arguably gone on to become even bigger as a solo artist and holds the record for being the only artist ever to have 30 consecutive top 10 singles in the UK chart. In this interview he talks about his show on Magic FM, Boyzone getting cigarette butts thrown at them and bottles of beer bounced off their heads, why they were never going to the get respect they deserved from NME, and why Barry Gibb is the greatest songwriter of all time. NB - This episode was originally recorded as part of Tom's Greatest Music of All Time Podcast, which organically evolved from its inception in early 2020, from a focus on the discussion of music to also exploring pop culture, comedy, entertainment, entrepreneurship, philosophy, science, politics and current affairs commentary. It was renamed as the Tom Cridland Podcast in January 2023.
