So were you able to do any
radio show hosting ?
From here I met a friend (ex student) of 'S' called Tim Gadd,
who ran a Friday night show on 7THE FM playing mostly heavy or
Progressive Rock such as 'Rush'. I used to bring up some of my
record collection and became like his wingman in a few off the cuff
discussions on various topics.
had a band called 'The Barbs' in for an interview regarding their new
single called 'Heart Attack' by keyboardist friend Mack Lancaster.
In subsequent years myself and Mack reconnected on the mainland for many
years of collaboration.
Tim was a
prolific fantasy writer so he went on to produce his own radio plays and
won an Arts Council grant. Also a multi-instrumentalist Tim wrote
and recorded some great songs playing keyboards and guitar. I did
a cover song of my favourite song of his 'Turn Off Your Boxes':
