  • InfluencesI've been passionate about radio since Radio Caroline and the other Pirate Radio Stations broke the BBC broadcasting monopoly in the 60's (I was only a teenager at the time you understand!) So I lived through the 60's - The Beatles, The Stones, hippies, mods & rockers and all that exciting stuff. I was always into blues since Peter Green & Fleetwood Mac - and hearing 'Jumping at Shadows' by Duster Bennett - & my favourite song - 'Tore Down' (first heard done by Alexis Korner, but I must have a dozen or more versions now). I'm into Jazz as well - like Miles Davis, John McLaughlin, Keith Jarrett - and I've always liked singer sonwriters like Michael Chapman, Mike Cooper & John Martyn - and new ones as well of course. I also like lots of the new blues artists and review their new releases on the show - as well as playing old blues and electric blues as well as some folky roots things.
