BBC Radio 4, Tuesday 2nd February, 11.30 a.m. GMT: if you can get past the silly title this might be an interesting half hour:


Stash: The Dandy Aesthete of Swinging London
Listen:
Next on:

03 Feb 2009, 11:30 on BBC Radio 4
Synopsis:

Music journalist Mark Paytress tracks down the mysterious Stash, or Prince Stanislaus Klossowski de Rola - friend of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, exotic dandy and lover, actor, musician, aristocrat and son of the controversial artist Balthus.

Mark examines Stash's close association with Stones guitarist Brian Jones and other leading lights of the music scene in 1960s London, the interest he developed in alchemy during a period living in Sri Lanka, and visits him in his Italian castle to discuss his life and experiences.

Thanks Deltics - just noted that it's on at 11.30 in the morning - I've corrected my first post.

Thanks for the heads up, Green Lady. Hopefully, the programme may also be available later on Listen Again. Mark Paytress has at least one book out on the Stones called "Off the Record" - a good compilation of quotes by them and others.

Actually, quite an entertaining listen.
A charmed life. No 9-5 drudgery.
Mansions/castles.
No tabloid intrusions.
Sleeping with Marianne + Anita + 1000 other unamed beauties.
Obviously believes the 67 Jones bust was a trumpted up charge, but then goes on to admit "if they'd visited any other time they would have found " etc. Strange logic.
No mention really of Keith or the 73 bust in London (Cheyne Walk).
Chris Jagger was interviewed -sounds a bit like Mick, without the forced cockney drawl.
Anita and Marianne declined to be interviewed.
Stash tried to get it on with the producer of the documentary. She declined.
But of course.

He recorded Love's A Message To Pretty with Jagger, Lennon and McCartney.
The tapes went missing! What a pity, sounds like a great lost track.
