I arrived to these shores via Viking long boat in a time long forgotten, bringing with me vinyl, cassettes and shiny discs – now used to scare birds from crops. Born to be a pessimist – my blood type was B negative, and raised as an only child – which really annoyed my sister. As a kid I was made to walk the plank – we couldn’t afford a dog! I’m humble and proud of it – also I’m a pretty good ventriloquist, even though I say so myself. I’m living the dream – but I do sleep a lot.
I was having a No-life crisis and decided to join the circus as a trapeze artist, until I was let go. My only other option was Community Radio. As a presenter of ‘Jukebox Saturday Night’ I realised that to play up-lifting music was to play country & western backwards – your lover returns, your dog comes back and you cease to be an alcoholic.
