Weller To Discuss 'The Gift' On The BBC

Ahead of the re-release of 'The Gift' on November 19th, Paul Weller will be discussing the landmark album for a special BBC Radio 4 show. 

Part of the station's Mastertapes series, Weller will be interviewed about The Jam's final album by John Wilson in front of a studio audience on November 1st (a small number of fans will be able to join the audience).

There will also be the opportunity to ask Paul your questions after the interview.

BBC Radio 4 say, “The Gift was released in March 1982 and was the band's only Number 1 album. Musically it marked the departure from the classic Jam sound to a more soul-influenced style, ushering in Weller's ideas for the Style Council.
The album did not just focus on the state of society, it had a lot to say about where music was going in the 1980s. 'The Gift' includes the classic Number 1 ‘Town Called Malice’ as well as ‘Running On The Spot’ and ‘Carnation’.”
