It occurred to us that it must indeed be a hard slog trying to get discovered in today's saturated music industry, especially since there are no longer quality programmes (if they can be called that!) such as Opportunity Knocks and New Faces to present talent to the public. This thought sparked off the idea that today's successful shows should undertake the task of helping tomorrows prospective stars. Our now aching brains managed to get a step further and we agreed that the ideal person to encourage this is entertainment guru Chris Evans, the ideal showcase, of course, being TFI Friday.
Mr Evans, being well known for his ground-breaking ideas, would I hope agree that a weekly slot to introduce unsigned bands would help to spread the success of Ginger Productions. He may even, as a sensible businessman (for want of a better word!) wish to extend his talents to record producing.
The unearthing of new, original and genuine star ability should not be left to fate, but be encouraged by those already in the public eye and those who already understand the rules of the fame game.
