About this Episode

Heinz Burt, known as "Heinz", the Wild Boy of Pop, was, you could say,

Joe Meek's muse.
Meek did everything possible to make his "Heinz" into a star.
Although Meek failed to do that,
he produced a large body of fabulous music around his Golden Child.
This podcast, previously unreleased, deals with the alchemy of imputation; the theme of unrequited love and consequent melancholy in much of the gold that Meek created out of Heinz; and with the proximity, to almost all of us, of mental illness.
There are two factual mistakes in the cast:
The town of Eastleigh is in Hampshire, not "New Hampshire";
and the song connected to the movie "Circus of Horrors" was sung by Garry Mills. It is entitled "Look for a Star".
