Old Enough to Know Better

Mal Pope's life is full of contrasts. Taken to chapel to listen to unaccompanied Welsh hymn-singing as a babe in arms, this Swansea lad would, only a dozen or so years later, be asked to sing a song on John Peel's show on Radio 1. He captained Swansea Schoolboys football team and earned a degree in Land Economy from Cambridge University. But music and performing have always been his greatest loves. Mal has written songs for Cliff Richard and the Hollies, duetted with Elton John and Bonnie Tyler, toured with Art Garfunkel and Belinda Carlisle and produced records for Aled Jones. As a broadcaster, he has presented shows on the BBC and hosted BAFTA award winning music programme "The Mal Pope Show" for ITV Wales. He has met and worked with the great and the good, including Dr Rowan Williams, the Rt Hon Neil Kinnock and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It's a truly amazing story.
