My shows these days are still very much ad hoc, aside from holiday specials like christmas etc. They are mainly laden with oldies and album tracks but I do occasionally play current music in my shows and also have odd features re edited classics and segues and cover discovers
Also coming with the occasional nod to the new tunes I still like them to have Soulful harmonies, funk Rhythms and jazz improvisations.

I first broadcast a brief show at Butlins in minehead on a school trip in April 1975. A very young version of me joined Whr in February 1978 initially with a 1 hour show playing film and soundtracks. Moving later to weekend breakfast and mid morning/afternoon soul shows. In 1984 I left Whr to join Horizon radio in London. From there Solar, and eventually ILR station Essex radio in 1990 with my own playlisted soul/dance show.
I also voiced ads for various ststions including Kiss 100fm in their early days. Recording at bome and at Graham Golds studio as Graham lived close by at the time. Staying mainly on the outer circle of radio until Solars return in1998. – Iam still here playing the tunes whenever I can.
