Tim’s 50th podcast, like his first, draws inspiration from the strange collection of objects and paraphernalia on one of his mantelpieces.

Tim talks about his first proper job in the entertainment business - a management trainee at EMI Records in the Swinging 60s. He produced his first singles (flops) but learned the recording studio ropes, and met an artist with whom he was to have a long and successful musical relationship (and friendship) in later years - Murray Head. He plays some…
 
The planned revivals of Aida and From Here To Eternity are still stymied but Tim has written a new song inspired by the G7 summit in Cornwall in June. Imaginatively entitled Gee Seven it pays tribute to that magic number rather than to the soon-to-be-assembled throng of world leaders, but does contain advice which they will surely appreciate. Learn…

Tim recalls the ups and mainly downs of Chess on the great White Way in 1988.

Tim wrestles with the eternal songwriter’s dilemma - which comes first, the words of the music? Andrew Lloyd Webber generally liked music first, Elton John always the words first. Dipping into songs from his first ever musical with Andrew and into the Lion King score he wrote with Elton, Tim attempts to see which way round works best. Learn more ab…
 
Tim reveals all about the last complete musical he wrote with Andrew Lloyd Webber, Cricket (Hearts and Wickets), just 30 minutes long, commissioned by HRH Prince Edward for HM The Queen’s 60th birthday in 1986. No official recording exists but Tim tells the tale with selections of the lyrics and a couple of the actual songs. Surely the theatre worl…
 
Tim is inspired by a 1944 theatre poster of a play which is totally forgotten today; however it has a great emotional impact for him, reminding him of the great times and success he and Andrew Lloyd Webber enjoyed with their manager the late David Land. It’s possible to succeed without taking yourself too seriously. In fact David Land proved it’s a…
 
Tim tells the story of the creation of the unofficial Bible of the British charts in their glory years - the series of books he founded with brother Jo, Paul Gambaccini and Mike Read. Tommy Steele, Kate Bush and Billy Fury illustrate his tale. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices…
 
Tim goes through the process that eventually led to the creation of Pity The Child, beginning with a Benny instrumental and a Bjorn vocal. The song is perhaps the most challenging in the Chess score, which Murray Head conquered impressively. He recalls car theft, non-appearance of moose and One Night in Trosa, a beautiful town on the Swedish Archip…
 
Tim recalls two meetings with the legendary Ronnie Spector, thirty years apart, on the TV show Ready Steady Go and in the recording studio. He describes his first ever television appearance, lip-syncing to a top ten hit by a Liverpudlian star of the swinging sixties. And he reveals how he once kept the Beatles from number one. Learn more about your…
 
Tim describes the recent NBC TV concert presentation of Jesus Christ Superstar that starred John Legend, Sara Bareilles, Alice Cooper and Brandon Victor Dixon. He looks back at Dorothy L. Sayers' 12-play cycle about Jesus’ life and death broadcast by the BBC at the height of World War II and surprisingly finds a few aspects common to both works. Le…
 
For the 5th time, in response to staggering public demand, Tim dips into his vast library of Chess out-takes, in-takes and mis-takes that were laid down in the 83/84 recordings of the original album.

Tim is amazed to realise that he has written around 50 songs with the great American composer Alan Menken, 8-time Oscar winner and fellow EGOT. So Podcast 32 features five of their joint compositions, including a song that never made it into Aladdin and a couple of items from King David. Judy Kuhn, Dan Stevens, Jonathan Freeman, Brad Kane and Alan …
 
Tim recalls Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 2011 stage production of The Wizard Of Oz at the London Palladium for which he and ALW added 4 songs to the immortal Harburg/Arlen score.

Long-time Buddy Holly fan, Tim wrote the third part of a Peggy Sue trilogy with Bobby Vee, fellow Holly aficionado and major recording star in his own right, entitled Whatever Happened To Peggy Sue? The next part of the story begun by Peggy Sue and Peggy Sue Got Married. Find out, possibly, what did happen to the real and fictitious Peggy Sue in Ge…
 
The huge success of the excellent Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit has shown that a story based in the world of chess can be entertaining even to non-players. Tim hopes that the musical Chess also demonstrated that back in 1984 and continues to do so. The 29th edition of his podcast features some unreleased demos from the original recordings and s…
 
Apparently Madonna (Leo) won’t work with Scorpios so Tim now knows why she hasn’t been in touch for 24 years. Despite this rebuff he plays her delicate Evita interpretation of Another Suitcase. Also featured are Tony Christie, Julie Covington, Colm Wilkinson, Jimmy Nail, the legendary DJ Pete Murray and the Joseph Consortium. A Mixed Bag indeed. Le…
 
Tim returns to his very early days as a songwriter, playing some fairly obscure stuff written with Andrew Lloyd Webber half a century ago. Singers include Elvis Presley (obviously not an obscure performer), the fine actress Sandra Bernhard and Tim Rice (yes, the same). Jimi Hendrix contributes unwittingly to one track.

Tim recalls songs written with composer maestros Graham Gouldman, Vangelis, Richard Kerr and Florrie Palmer.

Exactly 50 years to the month after the original studio album of Jesus Christ Superstar was issued, Tim recalls many of the musicians, singers and studio team that helped to create the recording that launched his career and that of Andrew Lloyd Webber. Ian Gillan sings Gethsemane and Mike d'Abo King Herod. Johnny Gus belts Simon Zealotes. Tim think…
 
In the 1990s Tim was lucky enough to win three Best Song Oscars, each with a different composer. He explains how this curious state of affairs came to happen and plays the three winning numbers. He also confesses that he was once nominated for a Golden Raspberry in the worst film song category. Mercifully he did not win that one. Learn more about y…
 
Tim recalls the early days of writing and recording Chess with Bjorn and Benny in 1983/4. A fascinating trip to Moscow with the Cold War still dominating international politics. He plays instrumental demos of some of the first tunes considered for the show, including one dedicated to Russia’s superstar Alla Pugachyova. Learn more about your ad choi…
 
A new UK tour of Beauty and the Beast has been announced for May 2021, pandemic permitting.

Tim recalls the creation of the songs…
 
It’s not widely known that Tim wrote lyrics for two of Freddie Mercury’s songs on the Barcelona album he recorded with the great operatic soprano Montserrat Caballe. In Get Onto My Cloud episode 20 he plays both the tracks and assesses the theatrical aspect of Freddie’s huge talent. The podcast also includes a memorable recording of Bohemian Rhapso…
 
No show has caused Tim as much heartbreak and enjoyment as Chess, the musical he wrote with Abba genii Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson.

Tim looks back at the two Lion King movies, the 1994 original and the 2019 remake.

After 3 probing gripping podcasts about Evita’s early days (podcasts 12-14), Tim reveals all (or most, anyway) about his first theatrical misfire - Blondel, a show written with the late Stephen Oliver, which ran for a year in London 1983. He takes the blame for its problems but plays some selections from the score which shows that Stephen was as su…
 
Tim recalls the great success of the Evita studio album in the UK and its total lack of same in the United States. So it seemed unlikely that the Broadway legend Hal Prince would respond to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s invitation to direct Evita in the West End - but he did, after just one hearing of the studio recording, albeit he had some criticisms and…
 
Get Onto My Cloud Podcast 13 continues the story of the first ever revelation of Evita - as a record, not as a show, back in 1976. The album featured Julie Covington as Eva Peron, Paul Jones as Juan Peron and Colm Wilkinson as Che. Tim plays some lesser-known items from the recording including extracts that never made it onto stage two years later.…
 
How to follow Jesus Christ Superstar? After failing to make headway working on a musical with Andrew Lloyd Webber based on PG Wodehouse’s immortal Jeeves and Bertie Wooster, Tim came up with the insane idea of a musical about the wife of an Argentine dictator. Before Evita became a stage show, it was a record. This episode of Get Onto My Cloud tell…
 
Tim recalls the first time a work by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice made it to Broadway. The show was Jesus Christ Superstar, the year 1971, and it was not always plain sailing, despite the huge success of the 1970 studio album recording. But the work survived, and half a century on, continues to be performed around the world (except right now, o…
 
In the early 1990s Cliff Richard invited Tim to write the lyrics for all the songs in his proposed musical Heathcliff. John Farrar was to compose the music. The resulting show failed to excite many of the critics, positively anyway, but the public thought otherwise and the show was a big hit. Tim’s thoughts on his venture into Bronte country with a…
 
In response to staggering, well encouraging, interest in Get Onto My Cloud episode eight, about Tim's musical with Sir Elton John, Aida, episode nine features three more songs from the show sung by the Broadway stars Heather Headley, Adam Pascal and Sherie Rene Scott, and some more background about the show's creation - including the composer and a…
 
In 1996 Tim and Elton, following their success with The Lion King movie, embarked upon the creation of an original Broadway show entitled Aida, which Verdi had had a go at 125 years earlier. Despite trials and tribulations, the show made it to Broadway four years later and ran for four and a half years, earning them both Tonys for best score, and h…
 
50 years ago the unknown pairing of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice recorded the first ever version of their rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar.

Thus forced to make a cast album before the show, they unintentionally discovered a new way to launch a musical th…
 
In 1989 Tim was invited to translate the most successful French musical ever to have played in France. No – not Les Miserables. Unfortunately.

In the second episode of his new podcast Get Onto My Cloud, Tim tells the story of his first meeting with Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1965 and how they immediately set about writing a musical based on the life of Dr. Thomas Barnardo entitled The likes Of Us.
