• Paul of PAC Photography attended Toyah’s ‘Walk Of Fame’ ceremony. He said: “Just back from one of the greatest experiences of my life, great to see Toyah pick up her Walk of Fame award and to be able to capture it”. Paul was also at tonight’s gig, photographing fans and Toyah!

Robert Fripp unveiled Toyah’s star, on York Road in the town, just before Midday. Initial reports from those who attended are that it was a great morning.
The celebrations continue this evening with a two-set, two-hour, career-spanning homecoming gig at the Hare & Hounds. PAC Photography, who were also at this morning’s event, will be photographing each person at the gig. These will be made into a very special mosaic which will be presented to Toyah as a momento of the concert.
As we reported on Friday, Toyah was interviewed on Pete Morgan @ Breakfast on ‘BBC Radio WM’ this morning.
The short interview begins just before 2hr 26mins into the show and runs for approximately four minutes. Toyah talks her King’s Heath history, how her family settled there and growing up in the town, today’s ‘Walk Of Fame’ ceremony and tonight’s two-set gig. The ‘WOF’ ceremony was also one of the headlines in the show’s news.
