Blues In A Bottle (Updated)



Austin Churton Fairman (15 November 1924 - 4 April 1997), who used the name Churton Fairman but was more widely known under the pseudonym Mike Raven in the 1960s and early 1970s, was a British radio disc jockey, actor, sculptor, sheep farmer, writer, TV presenter and producer, ballet dancer, flamenco guitarist and photographer.

I fondly remember listening to his blues programs on offshore pirate Radio Atlanta (soon to become Radio Caroline) and later Radio 390 in the mid-sixties.

Thank you very much for this, I've been after it for 50 years, I'd prefer owning the vinyl but in the meantime this will do perfectly!
