Buying music from the age of 8.
Bought my first ‘jazz’ album at the age of 12 and hopelessly obsessed ever since.
Brought up on a healthy dose of disco, jazz-funk, 70’s pop, rock, soul, punk and reggae (and a little country n’ western).
Went into pirate radio in my late teens and did it on & off for the next 24 years or so (ended up on legit radio).
In that time, I was influenced by anyone that wanted to talk music to me so started to explore many other genres (electronica, world music, movie soundtracks, classical, dance etc…).
Now I just buy old, sometimes rare, sometimes expensive jazz vinyl.
