I was born in 1961 and became obsessed with music very early on, I guess that it’s a common scenario but it was listening to my older brothers records & playing his guitar that got me hooked at such an early age, my introduction to the World of music was Black Sabbaths first album, Atomic Roosters ‘Death walks behind you’ & Led Zep I, ll, & lll, these classic albums along with a handful of others were lying around when I was a kid in the very early 70s and I couldn’t stop playing them! One of the first albums I ever bought was Pink Floyds ‘A nice pair’ which I still have and love! I have played lead guitar & sung in bands all of my life most notably with ‘Hammerhead’ who formed in the late 70s and became quite well known in the NWOBHM scene, I stumbled into DJ’ing unintentionally after the American internet station ‘Deep Nuggets Radio’ played one of my songs ‘Psilocybin’ on the ‘The Electrodynamic Time Tunnel’ back in 2014, I had never heard of the station before but I tuned in & soon became a fan, during a conversation in their chat-room one night station manager Bob Zorich asked if I would like to have a go at making a show myself, and that’s basically how it all started, I have now been broadcasting every week since 2018, sometimes I’m on my own and sometimes I have a guest presenter for a bit of fun, but be warned; sometimes it gets a bit crazy when I’m joined by my friend ‘Lil’!!! I do love all kinds of musical styles and that is reflected in my shows, but my real passion is Prog Rock (old and new) I travel all over the country to get to as many live gigs as I can, so if you see a big daft Northern lad hanging around in a cannabis bandana at a prog gig, there is a pretty good chance that it will be me! …….so come and say hello.
