Redgrave rockers Walkway have enjoyed national exposure to millions after one of their songs was played on BBC Radio 2 at the weekend.

Michael Ready, the band’s manager, spoke to Dermot O’Leary for the ‘Some Fathers Do Indie’ feature, while latest single Streetwise was also played.

Mr Ready, whose sons James and Chris both play in Walkway, told O’Leary: “It’s been a long progression to get to where we have got at the moment, starting in the middle of 2006.

“We have had a lot of dedication from the boys which has got them to where they are now.

“It’s been a lot of hard work and it nice to think that hard work does get rewarded. We like to think it is not just an accident where we are.”

He also revealed songwriters from Australia, Germany, the US and Britain had been in touch with the band in a bid to score a ‘hit’ with the band.

Speaking after his appearance Mr Ready added: “We have had a big reaction over the weekend. The boys are actually recording today (Monday), and they are recording some stuff which is potentially for Radio 2 later in the year, because that is where you need to be played to get a major success.”

n Walkway’s appearance is available on the BBC iPlayer.
