Click here to listen back to my recent guest spot on The History of Jungle Show, Deja Vu FM.

It was my first time appearing on the station – lots of underground dance music history there! Big shouts to Pesk & Harry G for the invite. We chatted about various aspects of my journey through Jungle/D&B, and played some of my favourite tracks from (roughly) 1990-97. As always I pulled out way too many records, so keep an eye out for a possible Part 2 at some point…

Worldwide FM: The Women of Pirate Radio

For anyone that missed it, I guested on Kate Hutchinson’s Worldwide FM show Thursday 8th March, as part of the station’s all-women line-up of programmes for International Women’s Day 2018.

It was fun, and great to meet DJs Elayne and Camilla – who I’d either grown up hearing/seeing in media, or reading about their involvement in LWR, Dread Broadcasting Corporation etc. Definitely could’ve done with being a 2-hour show, at least!

The Last Pirates: Britain’s Rebel DJs

If you’re in the UK, turn on BBC4 this Friday, 29th September at 9pm for a documentary that looks at how a generation of pirate radio broadcasters changed the face of UK music. It’s hosted by the man Rodney P and should be a good watch!

Archive on 4: How to Go Straight

Well, I haven’t posted here for a while. The reason for this ties in with what I’m about to link to- I very rarely talk about it online, but by day I work as a producer for the Prison Radio Association, a small charity that runs National Prison Radio (a radio station for people serving […]
