Bill Grant talks to ARCA

ARCA wishes to thank Bill Grant for a very informative and musical meeting mixed with background and funny stories of 'The Gents' as a Birmingham band in the early 60s.  He obviously loves to talk about music and was very entertaining to listen to. 

Bill was another in a long line of special guests ARCA has had over the years.  These guests help us to get some insight into these bands and into music radio (behind the scenes).  We are working on several more guests in the coming months, so please keep checking this website or 'Like Us' on facebook to find out when the next one will be appearing.  Guests are always welcome.  You do not have to join ARCA, but we would welcome anyone who does.
