In this program we learn how the Thunderbirds, in which Murray played keyboards, became the support and backing band for an amazing tour of US artists that included Roy Orbison and Dion Dimucci.
The group also became the backing band for many Australian artists such as Johnny Chester and Marcie Jones.
As the 1960’s progressed Murray played less but became active in the studio where he undertook music direction, particularly for Merv Benton and Johnny Chester.
Into the 1970’s, and Murray moved away from music, although he was part of a revived thunderbirds in the late 1970’s, and began to develop out his non-music career where he moved into design and drafting.
We p/u with Murray talking about the work they had to do preparing for the visiting US Rock & Roll tour.
