Haff is a colourblind design teacher, hence the show's name (and his bizarre range of neck ties!) Regular features include: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed (Covers) and Birthday Blues.

Haff plays a very diverse range of music covering the whole blues genre. From classic old time artists such as Robert Johnson, Son House and Furry Lewis via legends such as BB King, Albert Collins and Johnny Winter through to more modern artists such as Joe Bonamassa, Ben Poole and Aynsley Lister. Acoustic, Slide, Electric, Harp, Bands and Solo Artists, its all fair game.

Along with great music, Haff aims to inform and educate listeners by providing background stories and additional information on the tracks played.

Being active in the Leicester live music scene, Haff is keen to promote local artists, both more and less well known and local blues festivals.

Oh, and he has an impressive collection of guitars. You can never have too many, right?
