Ep 11: Behind The Mic with Mike Stock (Stock Aiken & Waterman)

As part of Stock, Aiken and Waterman, Mike Stock is the most successful writer producer in British chart history. His music was the soundtrack to the late 80s and early 90s he wrote some of the most enduring floor-fillers, revived the flagging careers of legends like Donna Summer and Cliff Richard, created stars from the boys and girls next door and turned an actress into one of the worlds biggest pop stars.

Mike talks about the intensity of the period where at one point they had five studios working 24 hours a day churning out hits for artists. Hence is responsible for 54 top ten hits in the UK, 18 number one hits worldwide and over 100 top 40 hits.

He continues the Stock, Aiken and Waterman ethos of giving music fans what they want and recently produced a crowd-funded album for Shayne Ward.
