Interview with Cliff Richard

Sir Cliff has just published his autobiography and is about to embark on his 50th anniversary tour. Listen to our interview.

It all started back in 1958 when Cliff Richard and The Shadows first hit the charts with 'Move It'. 

50 years on and a knighthood later, Sir Cliff Richard is still going strong.

His 50th Anniversary single 'Thank-You for a Lifetime' is already in the Top 10.  If it makes Number One, Cliff will then have achieved Number One singles in each of the past six decades.

He remains one of Britains best-loved entertainers and recently spoke to BBC Radio Wiltshire presenter Graham Rogers about his memories of 50 years at the top, his army of loyal fans and the fact that he has very few, if any regrets. 

Cliff also talks about his autobiography, 'My Life, My Way' and his forthcoming 50th Anniversary tour, 'Time Machine' which begins on 10th November with dates at Wembley Arena and Cardiff CIA.

As Cliff himself says, 'Here's to the next 50!'

Thanks very much for the Cliff interview. It really makes our day. We are so happy to have a chance to listen to Cliff again. His talking is as entertaining as his singing. Wow, what a thrill it is! Thanks to BBC Wiltshire and Graham Rogers for making this possible.

Thanks for a great interview, nice to listen to a broadcaster who obviously respects Cliff! Makes a great change to all the slagging off he undeservedly gets. Love Cliff's sense of humour and this came over so well. He's just a lovely man and I'm proud to have been a fan throughout his 50 years! Here's to the next 50!!!

Sue Bell
Thank you BBC Wiltshire and Graham Rogers for this brillant interview,Living in Australia, on the other side of the globe, we appreciate being able to listen to Cliff "live" via the internet.No wonder this incredible man has lasted 50 years in the entertainment industry. He is so honest and genuine and it's no surprise that his latest single is a "Thank You" to his loyal fans. Cliff realises that his fans have been the reason for his longevity.Great interview Graham, and I look forward to seeing you at Wembley Nov 14th!!
