Radio? Me?

I have a long standing love affair with the Wireless.

My earliest memories are listening to the Wunschkonzert on the now defunct SDR (Süddeutscher Rundfunk). I remember, I was seven or eight, my dad assisting me with making a phone call to the station – only to hear a recorded message as it was way beyond their cut-off time – but still.

I remember listening to Enno Morricone’s theme from ‘Once Upon a Time in the West’ – it scared me to death. This is better explained once you know that the German title was ‘Spiel mir das Lied vom Tod’ (which translates into ‘Play me a song of death’)…

When I moved to London all these years ago I stumbled upon BBC Radio London (I think BBC London 94.9 it was called at the time) and my insomnia found a new home.

All these years later I’ve been working on that station as a paper reviewer and general musical-theatre-person guest gracing the airwaves with music and song from time to time over the years.

All this has lead to this: Riverside Radio. There you can hear me co-presenting the Drive show with Carpet Martin, Monday, Tuesday & Friday from 4pm to 6pm. You can also find us on DAB or simply ask your smart speaker to play Riverside Radio. Tune in sometime! It’s fun!
