Petula Clark

Petula Clark Is Ageless

May 30, 2013 - Petula Clark has a new album, "Lost In You." It’s her first since 2004 and she sounds as great as she always did. Which is only worth noting because she is 80 years old.

She started in film and on the radio even entertaining the troops in World War II. “Downtown” of course was a huge breakthrough world-wide. Listen to this interview and hear Petula Clark sing live in our studio and the last thing you’ll be thinking is, “she sounds like she is 80.” She’s got stories to tell. About Elvis Presley and her backstage visit with Karen Carpenter. About how she happened to be on the famous recording of “Give Peace A Chance” recorded at John Lennon’s bedside. And even why her first recordings were in French.
