Musical Background / History
I am an avid fan of all black music and I have been since the age of about 10 when I discovered Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Exodus album. Since then I have been in love with reggae and British lover’s rock. My musical taste has changed slightly as I grow older and I am now into rare groove and modern day neo soul and I absolutely love the soul of the 70s which is in my opinion the best era for soul music but I still get a buzz out of hearing a nice reggae tune.
How Did You Get Involved In GFM?
I have been a listener for years and recently I was very grateful to host a two part ‘My Tunes’ show with Lady M.
My definition of an achievement is helping others in need. To give someone a little change so they can get a hot meal.
Achievement is opening yours eyes in the morning. I strive to make a positive difference to others and to spread some love and happiness.
I also have five children and three grandchildren and a beautiful wife.
These are my biggest achievements.
To share some beautiful music and make a positive difference to people’s lives. To hopefully uplift people and bring them some joy.
