Songs From The Backroom

About the programme

Jules has a vague recollection of cutting out a cardboard guitar and using his scaletrix transformer as a wah-wah pedal…could this have been the beginning of his obsession with music? Quite possibly! Since then he has sung his 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 he’s been found planting gardens!
Jules can be caught spending hours sitting in his garden musing over his favourite artists and tracks then wandering into the back room to rummage through his music and cogitate. Songs From the Backroom 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, and a weekly moment to reflect on the often forgotten 7” B side.
Songs From the Backroom also features live 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 which was a real treat.

This year Jules has managed to combine his day job as head gardener at Kimberley Park with his 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, showcasing 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.

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!
