You’ve got to hand it to Sir Cliff Richard because he’s certainly done well out of being un-cool.
While his fans might feel that he’s not been treated very well by radio stations who have refused to play his songs over the years, the eternally youthful (and permanently tanned) one really can’t complain.
Radio 2 dedicated 30 minutes to playing his tunes on Friday and that’s an impressive amount of airplay when you’ve got an album out.
Sir Cliff must know he doesn’t really need radio stations to play his stuff. Have you heard about his fans? Loyal doesn’t even cover it.
And when you spend half your life in Barbados I’m sure it’s very easy to let the words ‘naff’ and ‘out-dated’ just drift right on by anyway.
