I was born in the sixties but was really too young to know the music then. When I did become interested in high school I was lucky enough to have friends with older siblings who had interesting record collections. So that’s where my love of music grew. I am very much into the psychedelic music that I missed the first time around. If I had to nominate a perfect song it might be “Alabama Bound” by The Charlatans (US 60s band not the UK 90s one) … or maybe “Willie the Pimp” by Frank Zappa … or “I Can See for Miles” by The Who … or ….
I had been listening and subscribing to Woodstock Rock for a number of years. One of the presenters on the show asked me to come in one night and play a set. I started doing a show every couple of months or so and it grew from there.
Only five …?
It is great to be around people who are all passionate about their music. There is a real mix of different musical tastes at the station and everybody respects that difference.
Our listeners too are passionate about their music and I have discovered new artists to listen to after talking to people who ring in to the show.
I am not sure that I have enough knowledge or material to present another show. I enjoy Posted – some of the music has stylistic links with German bands of the 70s but evolved into a new style. Also Spoonful of Blues – the Blues underpins so much that has happened in rock.
I am doing some study, some work, some music collecting.
