Growing up in the cultural desert that was 1960s and 70s Northern Ireland, radio was a break from the ongoing violence and destruction around me. Listening to the chart shows on the BBC was good but hearing alternative music on Radio Caroline and Radio Luxenbourg was much more inspiring. I’ve always loved music, all genres (that aren’t commercial), I’ve made mixtapes since the early 70s and have also worked with bands and hosted radio shows.
