Graham Parker

From the FUV Vault: Graham Parker & The Rumour

by Darren DeVivo

I have been a huge fan of Graham Parker's since the late 1970s. I can remember hearing him on the radio in my early teens and then borrowing some of his albums from the Parkchester branch library in the Bronx! With all the interviews I have had the honor of conducting at WFUV, somehow, I never sat down with Graham. So I was thrilled last year when I heard that Graham Parker & The Rumour would be reuniting for the album, Three Chords Good.  It was a thrill to finally get to know him. Making it even sweeter, the reunited Rumour were with him.

Graham Parker and The Rumour - Words and Music - 2013

by Darren DeVivo

Veteran rocker Graham Parker has never left the scene, but it's been over 30 years since the classic days with his band The Rumour. Now they're back, their songs are in the new movie This is 40 and they have a great new album, called Three Chords Good—their first in 32 years. So listen in for live tunes and a good chat with the man himself.
