Biography

With a pen sharper than James Brown’s wardrobe and a voice as controversial as chorizo in a paella, this vigilante reporter has turned the world of music journalism on its head, shaken it by the ankles and stolen its lunch money. Whether he’s tearing up the festival circuit or exploring the deviant peripheries of popular music from behind a radio desk, this young firebrand is sure to appall the NME-conditioned generation with his acerbic critiques and visionary expositions.

Prepare to be awoken during his Gates of Dawn program which airs every Wednesday night from 9.30pm-11pm.

Brilliant Station, Chargrilled, Making Paper Boats, Miscellaneous Debris and Konquerinz Soundz my absolute nevermiss shows. The whole station is unique and never dull. So lucky to be able to tune in, shame the station drops around Helston way on a drive out on a Sunday we always shout nooooo !!! Have pulled into laybys to hear the end of some tunes !! Keep up the good work.

I just discovered your wonderful station! Wow love it....from Barbara Hepworth to the Buzzcocks! Very cool indeed. I grew up as a kid in Cornwall (St. Day and Grampound) in the 60's my family emigrated to California in 1967. My love for anything brewed in Cornwall is strong! I have spent the last 40 years as a Graphic Designer for TV and Print here in Los Angeles, I was also an online DJ for a local station here. So happy to have discovered Source!
