“I am always in pursuit of new artists who are not yet mainstream, the rockier - the better. Blues also feature heavily in my programmes. Suggestions from listeners help to enrich Albumheads content. I first broadcast recorded shows in the early 90s for Radio Caroline on their only outlet at that time - satellite, and later live from the Radio6 studios in Calais. Mine was the first voice to be heard from a licensed Radio Caroline on 101.8Mhz FM from the Dover RSL in April 1992.
I welcomed the arrival of the new era of high definition digital recordings now made available through the likes of HighResAudio.com, HDtracks.co.uk etc. although the improvement over CD is subjective. Audition first whenever possible! A lack of definition is often just poor mastering. The demand for HD consumer audio has given the recording and download retail industries a much needed kicking.
If you enjoy seeing musicians play live, The Hamsters often feature in my Albumheads programmes. They were one of the most entertaining acts EVER. Take a look at a short interview with lead man ’Slim’
I often ‘Anchor’ during the weekly 3 hour ‘Monday Live’ shows which begin at 7pm UK time. I do still enjoys concert going but not to festivals.”
