80’s Music show Online

Are you ready to be taken back in time? To a golden age of synth pop, men in make up, big hair, women in suits, lots and lots of hair spray, aftershave that was so strong it knocked your socks off, and parents who just didn’t get it? Well then you’ve come to the right place?

If any of you missed my 80’s music show on BBC 3 CR earlier this year, I have put it online at Tin Decks. So you can listen away or grab it to play on your MP3 player at your leisure. Or you can listen below. I’m so good to you lot.

In The Bag!

Phew, that’s my radio show in the bag. I had a great time, especially as I got to play some music I never thought would get aired again. If you missed the show it’s now online at the BBC i-Player

Also if you’re a fan of Howard Jones, or a synth head, then check out my full interview with Mr Jones on TinDecks. You can download it as an MP3 too. On top of that you can grab all of my back catalogue of music from all the bands I have been in over the years. So if you remember Freak UK, Eroticis or Scarlet Messiah you can get everything for free!

Hope you enjoyed the show as much as I did. You wouldn’t know (I hope)  but I was joined in the studio by a documentary film crew who are making a film about the event. More news soon.
