Published on October 12, 2020

‘Whispering’ Bob Harris, the doyen of British DJs, champion of country and Americana music and host of BBC Radio 2’s Country Show, has raided his little black book and gathered together - virtually – a stellar lineup of musicians to record a cover version of the Ben E King classic song, ‘Stand By Me’.

The 50 plus legendary names include Rosanne Cash, John Oates, Keb' Mo', Peter Frampton, Darius Rucker, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Callaghan, The Shires, Paul Rodgers, P.P. Arnold, Sam Palladio, Sam Outlaw, Laura Cantrell, Richard Thompson, Kimmie Rhodes, Marc Cohn, Mark Knopfler, Duane Eddy, and Rick Wakeman, not forgetting on lead triangle Whispering Bob himself.

It’s all in aid of Help Musicians, an independent British charity for professional musicians, who are in need of support now, in the coronavirus pandemic, more than ever. The recording will be released as a charity single later this month, but you can make a donation to Help Musicians now. To make a donation click here.
