Get Onto My Cloud: The Tim Rice Podcast


Get Onto My Cloud has host, Sir Tim Rice, at his chatty witty best, where he talks about his career in theatre and music, his colleagues and friends (plus the odd foe) and sometimes roams off stage to discuss other important matters in his life such as cricket, astronomy, Sunderland FC and boxer dogs.

You can also expect to listen to recordings of some of his favourite lyrics (not always the obvious ones) and he reveals how and why some shows worked brilliantly and some didn’t.

Described as “Relaxed, casual, essential listening for musical theatre fans and historians”

Sir Tim Rice wrote the lyrics for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Chess and The Lion King, to name but five.

The composers he has worked with include Andrew Lloyd Webber, Elton John, Alan Menken, ABBA’s Bjorn and Benny and Freddie Mercury.

Superstar Rocks Broadway (sort of)

Tim recalls the first time a work by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice made it to Broadway. The show was Jesus Christ Superstar, the year 1971, and it was not always plain sailing, despite the huge success of the 1970 studio album recording. But the work survived, ...

Cliff and Heathcliff

In the early 1990s Cliff Richard invited Tim to write the lyrics for all the songs in his proposed musical Heathcliff. John Farrar was to compose the music. The resulting show failed to excite many of the critics, positively anyway, but the public thought otherwise and the show ...
