Musical Background / History

I was a member of the best sound system in Gloucester in the 1980’s & 90’s although I wasn’t the selector I had access to the music because being an emcee at the time I needed to familiarize myself with the music and also had an input into the music being bought.


How did you get involved in GFM?

I want to be part of GFM because I’ve been listening from the very beginning and I don’t hear a lot of the kind of lovers I will be playing (English Lovers) I’m sure there is a lot of people my age crying out for this kind of music. When I done the memories programme I enjoyed it so much I just had to get involved.


Achievements

My achievements are in sports. I’ve won medals & cups for football, Table tennis & Power lifting.


Musical Aspirations

In 5 years time I would like to be one of the wickedest revival dancehall & lovers rock selectors in England or even maybe the world.


Most influential tracks

I’ve been influenced by many tunes but 3 that come to mind are as follows if nanny was here by Rankin Dread, It’s true by Donna Rhode & 6 6th street by Louisa Marks.
