    One Man’s Trash Interviews Squeeze’s Chris Difford

By Dan Schumacher
KTSW 89.9 General Manager

KTSW 89.9 general manager, faculty adviser and host of One Man’s Trash interviewed Squeeze tunesmith Chris Difford on Aug. 29, 2019. 

Chris Difford represents one half of the songwriting duo for the band Squeeze, which first found prominence in the late ’70s and early’ 80s with songs like “Tempted” and “Pulling Mussels (From the Shell).” Difford met songwriting partner Glenn Tilbrook in 1973 after posting an ad for a guitar player for his band in the window of a bakery in his hometown of Greenwich, England, to which there was only one reply—from Tilbrook.
