Henry Lydiate & Tot Taylor: The Art World in the 70s and Today

August 4, 2022

This summer special episode presents a relaxed platform for songwriter, author and art curator Tot Taylor and art lawyer Henry Lydiate to share memories of the 1970s when their paths met in the rock music world.  We hear about life in Cambridge and London and how self-identity was developed and culture was accessed without the internet.  

 

Tot and Henry are the subjects of earlier episodes of this podcast where they share more of their art world past memories and present wisdom.
