Biography

Jules has been involved with numerous music projects over many years.

Songs from the Backroom is exactly that, a weekly trawl through the shelves and  sleeves of the backroom, revisiting some classic radio sessions, favourite tracks and rare songs as well as a selection of new releases and perhaps the odd track to re-introduce artists that somehow missed the boat.

Regular features on the show include the ’And Much More Besides’ slot, a weekly moment to reflect on the sometimes overlooked 7” B side. ‘A Moment With Dudley or Dusty’ also makes a regular appearance.

Songs from the Backroom hosts sessions and interviews with local musicians as well as those visiting Falmouth. In Nov 2011 Jules was delighted to welcome Glenn Tilbrook (Squeeze) and his band into the studio for a live session and interview.

Jules combines his day job as Head Gardener of Kimberley Park with his passion for live music. Parklive founded in 2012 is a free event running every last Sunday of the month from April through to September.

Source FM is committed to bringing Parklive to our community, showcasing local musicians and performers. Many thanks to the team, all the performers 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.

Just wanted to say what a lovely surprise it was on Monday morning when I first discovered your channel on my tablet. I am an artist and I love to have music and humour playing in my studio. The programme that I discovered was called the Monday Morning Comedy Collective with a presenter called Colin Leggo . A lovely lively entertaining programme with lots of humour and a good variety of music. I think a big strength of the programme is the warm personality and the professional style of the presenter. Colin Leggo was often using funny voices which I found really funny but he also encouraged the listeners to contribute to the programme. He was also interviewing a comedian which was interesting and entertaining. I will definitely catch the Colin Leggo show again and explore the other Source programmes.
