Born in south London under the shadow of Tower Bridge in 1856. Worked in a variety of jobs culminating with a career in the London Fire Brigade. Transferred to the Isle of Wight (best place on the planet, Parkhurst!!) in 1989. Now as a retired firefighter the need to keep the old grey matter going is a priority and Vectis radio (best radio station on the planet) has let the old boy on the turntables for a bit of therapy. I like all music but for me THE music is the mod sound and everything that goes with the style movement. Ska, Soul, R&B and Classic American imports, throw in a little Northern soul and Two Tone and you have Mod Magic.
Music that blasted out of the Jukeboxes and blew the froth off the coffee in those heady days of milk bars and swanky Italian coffee houses.
So if that's the music you like, then catch me every Monday evening 7-10pm here on Vectis Radio.
The Mod Anthem Show allows me to share the great modernist sounds of those great times with all generations of that stylistic movement, not just the well known music but stuff that echoed from the juke boxes but were never chart busters.
Wambamalama my other show, which showcases Rock & Roll music and hopefully captures at least for a couple of hours some fine sounds and memories for a time when life seemed a little easier (rose tinted glasses) checkout the Player above or tune in on Fridays between 3-5pm.
