Songs from the Backroom

I do have a vague recollection of cutting out a cardboard guitar and using my scaletrix transformer as a wah-wah pedal…could this have been the beginning of my obsession with music? Quite possibly! Since then I have sung my way through several bands, been involved with numerous musical projects, imported hefty consignments of high quality vinyl and CDs for the UK music buying public, run around in restaurants and more recently been found planting gardens!
I can be caught spending hours sitting in my garden musing over my favourite artists and tracks then wandering into the back room to rummage through my music and cogitate. My Source FM show revisits some classic radio sessions, a mix of favourite tracks and rare songs as well as new sounds and perhaps the odd track to re-introduce artists that somehow missed the boat, also a feature on the show is the ’and much more besides’ slot, a weekly moment to reflect on the often forgotten 7” B side.
My show also features live sessions and interviews with local musicians as well as those visiting Falmouth. In Nov 2011 I was delighted to welcome Glenn Tilbrook (Squeeze) and his band into the studio for a live session which was a real treat. This year I have managed to combine my day job as head gardener at Kimberley Park with my passion for live music. Parklive in Kimberley Park a free event every last Sunday of the month from April through to September has proved to be a great success. Source FM is committed to bringing Parklive to our community, show casing local musicians and bands, many thanks to the team, all the musicians and the fantastic support from Falmouth Town Council and Sponsors.
You can tune in to Songs from the backroom every Thursday between 7.30pm and 9.30pm.
