Casual Conversation January 30 with Paul Gambaccini
On Sunday, January 30, 2022, at 3 pm Eastern Standard Time, Paul Gambaccini will join us on Zoom for a casual conversation. He will be speaking from London, England, where he has lived and worked for decades. As with all our casual conversations with Dartmouth colleagues, this will not be an exercise in nostalgia about our College years. Rather, Paul has spent a lifetime forging a unique path in the entertainment industry in the UK becoming not only its leading radio presenter, but also hosting the nation’s annual music awards ceremony, named after Ivor Novello (Britain’s Kern). And he was famously targeted by the Metropolitan Police on the basis of an accusation that could only be a lie, from beginning to end. After leaking his identity and Paul’s being on bail for a year, he was completely exonerated. Since then he has fought for a change in the British justice system that used Paul and others to make up for the Establishment’s knowing silence about the criminal sexual abuses by Jimmy Savile.
You can read Paul’s book Love, Paul Gambaccini (Biteback Publishing Ltd. 2015), or watch any one (or more) of a number of videos with him or about him. Here are four links:
