PODCAST - FRANK LIEBERMAN
29 August 2018

We all know what we mean when we describe someone as 'larger than life' and even though it's a hoary cliché, it's the best phrase to use when talking about the amazing Frank Lieberman.

Mellower in retirement than he once was, he nonetheless remains a formidable figure and - in our latest podcast - he speaks about the extraordinary life he lived before he discovered the world of advertising, as well as the subsequent career which made him one of our industry's legends.

Special thanks to The Elements for the recording and to the wonderful Dan Lentaigne - one of Frank's two daughters - for making this happen.


The David Reviews podcasts would not be possible without the wonderful people at String & Tins. They provide studio facilities, a brilliant sound engineer, editing assistance, invaluable advice and unbeatable hospitality.
