DJ Profile
rockabilly music online from THE PROFESSOR ROCKS on Live365 Internet Radio
DJ: colindaviesdc
Location: Fairfax, VA

I've been living in the US, in Washington DC, for 15 years - I'm originally from England and I have lived and worked in five countries. I saw Buddy Holly on TV in England in 1958, and my life was changed! Since I've been in the States I've achieved most of my ambitions - I've met Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Sam Phillips, and Scotty Moore, I've been to New Orleans, Memphis, and Nashville, and I met Buddy Holly's family in Lubbock. I used to work on a radio station on the Viriginia/Maryland/West Virginia border, playing a lot of Gene Vincent and Johnny Burnette, and I now have a show on Fairfax Public Access.
