Show: The Folk Session
When are you on?
First Friday of every month, 8pm to 10pm.
Describe your show.
The best folk, roots and acoustic music.
Why do you like this music?
It’s the ying to my Heavy Metal yang.
What is the format of your show?
2 hours, as much music as possible. Minimal chat.
Why should we listen to your show?
Because there’s a massive amount of fantastic folk music out there that simply doesn’t get the airing it deserves.
How did your show come about?
What has been your best on air moment?
Playing my first ever track.
What has been your worst/most embarrassing DJing moment?
I muddled up which CD player was in use and turned it off live on air, had to start the track again. First time, mind you.
Who is your favourite artist? Why?
Iron Maiden – simply the greatest metal band of all time and, if it wasn’t for them, I would never have listened to acoustic music.
What is your all time favourite album? Why?
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son by Iron Maiden – the tracks, the artwork, the famous Sonington ’88 Monsters of Rock headlining gig, the moment. Perfection doesn’t come along too often.
