Today in Mailbox: The American singer Dean Reed in From the Archives...

Thanks for tuning in to Mailbox, Radio Prague's weekly programme for your views, comments and questions. Joe Atkinson from Brno enjoyed last week's From the Archives by David Vaughan:

"I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your Radio Prague story about Dean Reed. I too was fascinated a few years back when I picked up a copy of 'Comrade Rockstar', the book on which 'The Red Elvis' is based, if I'm not mistaken in a Prague bookshop, and couldn't believe that I had never heard of this guy before (I first came to Brno in 1990). I was working as an English teacher at Prague Air Traffic Control Training Centre at the time and mentioned my 'discovery' to my students. All of the older ones (especially the female ones!) remembered him with fondness and a couple had even met him at the airport in the early 80s. One of the students brought me her treasured vinyl albums (on Supraphon I guess) to show me."
