Originally broadcast over three days in June 1985, this is a series of Freddie interviews with Simon Bates on BBC Radio One. Freddie interviews, especially throughout the 1980s, are not that common and this is a rather lengthy one. He discusses being a front man, Munich, face creams, and a little Michael Jackson.

FM Interview 1.mp3 31.49 MB
FM Interview 2.mp3 32.77 MB
FM Interview 3.mp3 41.81 MB
FM Interview.txt 110 B

It's a little over an hour total. I think the sound is a step too high and Freddie voice's sounds like he's inhaled a little helium. It's not distracting at all, just different than what we are used to.

This was originally downloaded from the Hub a couple years ago, though I have no clue from whom. A thank you to that mysterious person and the original encoder.

Finally, I'm always interested in interview material. If you think you have something rare or hard to find, contact me or return the favor and share on QZ.

You will need a bittorrent client to download the music. For additional information, view the Bittorrent FAQ.

Please leave your window open when you have finished downloading so that other Queen fans can download.

I bet I have that, but I can't tell from the file name. Sometimes, unauthorized CDs put very generic sounding names on interviews, which means it is very hard to pinpoint what they are. It would be worth a download for me, though, just to be sure.

Also, I think the Freddie 1984 interview you mention is with Mary Turner and was recorded in Munich. Just info if you wanted to archive it or whatever.

It's made by the same people that did the Magic Moments dvd.

I'll torrent it later tonight if you like (in about 4 or 5 hours.)

Yes, please. I'll check it out and see if I can identify it. Between generic names and different forms of mp3 compression, it's hard to tell what a file is sometimes.
