  • Just heard a Roachford song for the first time ('Cuddly Toy') in Alan Partridge (the movie) and thought it was great. Will have to have a listen to his other work sometime.
  • v Same here. My dad's a huge fan of Roachford, so I've been listening to his songs since I was very young. Pretty fortunate there.
  • This guy is pretty amazing, I'm surprised he doesn't have more listeners
  • Hey guys, Just popping by to let you know about an interview we did with Roachford at the Isle of Wight Festival where talk turned to travelling to the festival, Mike and the Mechanics, and having a food fight with Europe... - http://absrad.io/LQ765v Enjoy! All the best, Tim from Absolute Radio
  • He did an impressive job singing for (and touring with) Mike and the Mechanics, so i got curious about his own stuff. Seen him yesterday for the first time at a solo gig and loved it !
  • Permanent shade of blue!! Perfect rockin' and groovin' record!!!
  • I didn't know him until Beverley Knight recorded Cuddly Toy. This song is amazing!
  • anyone listened "River of love"? suuuper..
  • ”Cuddly Toy” = THE #1 tune when on the move and in a hurry, still — and when I need that extra smile on my face. Played much AR in clubs in the −80`s and have heard EVERYTHING he ever did broadcast! Not much lately — is he still alive??
  • Underrated [3]
