Music has been a huge part of my life since I was very young and my i-pod features music ranging from Baroque to 21st century electronic trance and ambient stopping at almost all stations between! But it is the blues that is my passion and I have been bringing the blues to the airwaves since 2001 via various internet stations around the world and a couple of FM station in the UK.

I retired to the northern Haute-Vienne in France 8 years ago after 40 years working in the City of London and produce my shows from a small home studio. I am actively involved in the Le Buis Blues Festival (www.lebuisbluesfestival.com) and am also starting to put on blues gigs locally.

I am also still very much involved in the blues in the UK and in 2015 founded the UK Blues Federation (www.ukblues.org) of which I am Chair. The aim of the Federation is to provide a focal point for the blues in the UK and to promote UK blues around the world. We run an annual UK Blues Challenge the winner of which represents the UK at the European Blues Challenge as well as the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in the USA.
