Listen to our interview with Midge Ure and Trina Mara on “Something for the Weekend”
Midge Ure is about to kick off his Irish tour so Trina Mara called the Ultravox singer to talk all things 80’s, Band Aid and why it’s so unfortunate that his surname and bandname both start with the letter “U” (they were always stocked at the back of the record store shelves).
Midge talks about his career which has spanned 4 decades, several bands and one of the biggest fundraisers ever seen when he organized Band Aid with his pal Bob Geldof – they had 24 hours to get a group of International artists into a recording studio, record and mix a song ready for release the next day…..but it wasn’t all plain sailing.
