I am English by birth from Grimsby Lincolnshire. Grew up with Punk rock and Goth Music and then Indie Music. My informative years were late 70’s and the 80’s. Particularly remember the Triffids album covers and wondering where that is??….DJed at Goth clubs in England and made the grade at RTR three years ago on the graveyard shifts… Now present Rock Rattle and Roll and Burn the Airwaves…
John Peel….I know lots of irrelevant music facts and lots of important music facts. I know that most songs mean something to someone. Even Taylor Swift!! Never really spent any time without music being close to me. Cannot play an instrument but make mix tapes until the cow’s come home.
The fact that even though you know you are playing music for someone…. You don’t know who they really are…They may be people who sing along to a chorus… Someone who thinks..”I will google that track tomorrow” or someone who emails to ask for more information….Or someone who is driving and thinks “No thankyou!”
Middle of the night situations. Such as someone who called at 430am to say thanks for playing that track, ,..it was recorded by my nephew!
It would always contain a Spiritualized track. Reason? Just listen to Amazing Grace or A and E..
I have the heavy and rewarding responsibility of educating the young and impressionable of our society…
