Nashville Calling with Wayne Allen

Hosted by:

Genre:


My life has revolved around music. Writing, recording, performing live and for a while I worked for a well known record company in London. As a result I have quite a large record collection.

In my twenty’s I got through to the finals of 2 national TV talent competitions, appearing on BBC and ITV national (network) TV in the UK. A couple of albums and several singles followed.

In the 1990s I got offered the job of frontman with the original U2 tribute (cover) band ‘The Doppelgangers’ – named by Bono and put together by U2 and their management for the video of ‘Even Better Than The Real Thing’. The Doppelgangers were also used by U2 for several other promotional purposes – most notably for the ‘Zoo TV outside Broadcast’ – the tribute band appearing on stage when the cameras turned to reveal the real U2 sat in the audience. 15 years followed touring Europe and the USA. See some photos below.

I now live near Beziers on the south coast of France in the Languedoc and it’s great to be able to put my record collection and experiences in the music business to good use with Ex-pat Radio.
