My previous session guests:
My relationship with John Peel started during a rainy family, caravan, holiday in North Wales, in the summer of 1981. Lying in bed content in the knowledge that all music had started and finished with Ultravox I stumbled upon his show... Over the years I never tired of scribbling down the names of obscure artists even though enquiries, about the likes of Alvin the Aardvark & the Fuzzy Ants*, drew bemused looks from the staff at Golden Disc.
In the early 90's I blagged a DJ slot at Wigan Pier. I fizzed with excitement at the prospect of playing Husker du, Pavement & The Fall to 800 punters every week. I overlooked the fact that 795 punters didn't want to listen to Husker du, Pavement & The Fall and would instead prefer to hear EMF, Wonderstuff & Candyflip. The choice was obvious, give the people what they wanted, or leave! After I left, I started the club night 'Subculture' in, my home town, Oldham and found more than a handful of folk who seemed to like 'that thing I did', either that or they didn't have anywhere else to go.
A few other music bits & bobs I’ve done; Managed a few bands (including Gabrielle's Wish) Edited the fanzine 'Subculture'. Done a few stints on RSL Stations and did a pop quiz for my Sisters pub.
I am proud to be part of Dandelion Radio and help keep John Peel's memory and work alive.
*never did get my hands on anything by them.
If you have anything for me to hear, pretty well any genre, then get in touch.
