I started taking a real interest in music from an early age, and developed an interest in DJing when my brother teamed up with a friend and used to do the clubs and pubs in the mid 70’s. I developed a love of independent music in the 80’s initially, but by then was fed up listening to the same top 10 songs played ad nauseum and started looking at alternatives. I believe there are a significant number of like-minded listeners who also want something different. Hence the A&R Show. Album tracks and rarities. The kind of thing you won’t normally hear on mainstream radio. Having been an avid listener to an online station for a few years, I approached the owner about doing a one-off special. It was well-received, and as a result was offered a weekly slot. The rest as they say is history. I now present for several stations. I really enjoy preparing and recording my show, as it really gets me thinking about what to play, and when. Off-air I enjoy the theatre, both on- and back-stage, and seeing local bands play.
