Way back in the sixties, Pete Atkin started a song-writing partnership with author, poet, journalist and TV presenter Clive James. Clive wrote the most wonderful lyrics and Pete would set them to brilliant melodies and musical arrangements. Together, they released six critically acclaimed albums on RCA records during the early seventies. Their collaboration continued until Clive died in 2019. They had continued to write songs together and release albums throughout the noughties. The songs are still widely cherished and whilst Pete’s performances are all too rare these days, his gigs are always a cause for celebrating this amazing song-writing partnership. Pete Atkin also has a long career in broadcasting behind him, as a producer at Radio 4. He is probably best known in that context as the man behind the series This Sceptred Isle.
