A new year means a new season of LIFTING THE LYD, with our first guest of 2021... Spin Doctors lead singer & co-founder Chris Barron!

The American rock band has sold millions of records, including the hits ‘Two Princes’ and ‘Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong’; toured with the Rolling Stones; played at the likes of Glastonbury and Woodstock; graced Rolling Stone magazine’s cover; played on Dave Letterman and Saturday Night Live... the achievements just go on. The band is still active, releasing music & touring internationally, & Chris is also a solo act, with a new album coming soon!

As someone who used to dance around to Spin Doctors' hits, this was a real pleasure for me - a big thank you to Richard Ilderton (LTL's first ever guest) for the link up!

Richard Ilderton - Marine Mammal Medic for British Divers Marine Life Rescue

Richard Ilderton - Marine Mammal Medic for British Divers Marine Life Rescue

Welcome to the first episode of LIFTING THE LYD! Today I’m speaking with Richard Ilderton, a marine mammal medic, saving the lives of injured or trapped seals, dolphins and whales for British Divers Marine Life Rescue. He’s an area coordinator for the international organisation, whose volunteers brave rough seas, dramatic conditions and the sharp teeth of their seal patients...


We chat about how to 'jump a seal', the largest animal he's rescued, the effects that plastic pollution is having on these fantastic animals and what we can all do to help. 


If you see a seal, whale, dolphin or porpoise in distress, you can call the hotline 24/7 on 01825 765546.
