Claire Taylor talks to Story Archeologist Beverley Glick (co-founder of The Story Party) about how her work as a music journalist in the 1980’s.

I had a wonderful conversation recently with Beverley Glick – Story Archeologist, co-founder of The Story Party and an Editor for The Daily Telegraph.  Beverley was a music journalist in the late 1970’s & 1980’s, regularly interviewing popular bands such as Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran, Soft Cell, Culture Club, The Human League and many others.

Beverley tells her story, through which we learn more about how the cultural environment in the late ’70’s and ’80’s influenced music and shaped the way that female power was defined. We talk about how the music industry challenged conventional ideas about identity and we delve into the themes of authenticity and integrity. Also we discuss how the cultural environment and the music industry shaped Beverley herself, as a music journalist, an editorial leader and as a person.

The music industry is at the vanguard of cultural change  – it shapes and reflects our world.  Therefore the themes that we address have a universal resonance – we see them reflected in business and in our beliefs about life.
