I'm a music freak with a large collection of music, mostly jazz and blues going back about 46 years. I grew up in London, UK and started going to clubs when I was just 14 and seeing artists like Eric Clapton, John Mayall, Georgie Fame, Manfred Mann and many others in their early days. I also saw many of the great American bluesmen like Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and Sonny Boy Williamson when they toured the UK so I got a taste for the music at a young age! I've been a DJ on a local station for about 9 years now and thought it was time to bring the music I enjoy to the world! On this station Blues Groove I'm concentrating more on contemporary blues but you might find a few oldies in there too and some more jazzy and R & B tunes. You'll hear music from the USA, UK, Canada and Australia. There's a bit of 50's jump blues in the mix. There are also some of the British bands I grew up listening to and modern tunes that I think may become classics one day! Hope you enjoy the tunes as much as I do! I'm always keen to get feedback but I try to gage which tunes are popular by listener ratings so if you really like a tune don't forget to give the thumbs up! Listener favourites are published at the end of each month on the Facebook page.
