He can come and clear my loft if he likes. I look at it from time to time with a mind to clearing it out, but think better of it.

"I remember asking for the Beatles Illustrated Songbook, and then being dismayed by how every song had so many chords in it......." Yes Jarvis, we've all been there :-)

He is ever so observant - "I started to look at the world by what they through away" LOL

He makes a great radio presenter and reminds me of that excellent orator - John Peel. I just love that understated humour which is always such a refreshing change to the more "In ya face, shouty, pushing the boundaries of effin' and jeffin" humour that seems to be the flavour of the month

He came in my shop, I had Miles Davis on the stereo, he said, "hmmmmm, In A Silent Way" I said, yes.
Not many people know that.

He is a natural, being able to recall anecdotes from his formative years that we can all relate to, things such as him having the cassette recorder where he could overdub to the accompaniment of the usual "Shut that bloody noise up" being shouted from downstairs - how we suffer for our art!

It surprises no band in history seems to have written a song called "Shut that Bloody Noise Up" because I am sure most young musicians have been through the experience

This is a gem of a broadcast
