Barbara cartland

Dame Barbara Cartland (9 July 1901 - 21 May 2000) was a prolific English romantic novelist and well-known media personality who appeared regularly on UK television dressed in her trademark pink. In 1976, her daughter married the 8th Earl Spencer, making Cartland the step-grandmother of the future Princess of Wales.

In 1978, the author released an LP, ‘Album of Love Songs’, on which her vocal performances were backed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Mike Sammes Singers.

In Margrave Of The Marshes (Bantam Press, 2005, p. 209-10), Sheila recalled that the guests on How It Is on the night she first encountered Peel included Barbara Cartland (as well as the Spinners).

Peel played tracks from ‘Album of Love Songs’ on his shows on a number of occasions.

In 1982, the Gymslips recorded a version of their song 'Barbara Cartland' for the band’s second session (first broadcast 16 September 1982 and repeated 06 October 1982).
