I have always had a taste for a wide range of music from pop to folk to garage to opera to jazz to classical to 16th-century choral. Wouldn’t you just love to bring back someone like Mozart or Palestrina to our modern age so they could see how their music can be heard anywhere, using any device, at any time? No royal court membership needed, no waiting for the seasons to change so you can leave your hard life working in the fields for a brief moment of musical respite.
Yes, I like to listen to all kinds of music simply because I CAN. We are so lucky.
I am a Canadian living in Britain and along with listening to music I like to chat. Lots. I studied PR and journalism many years ago and this is what has brought me to 10 Radio. The long-held desire to mix my interest in music with my interest in people and ask them lots of questions about their lives. I guess I’m just doing what I have always done but in front of a microphone.
If you would like to write in while I’m on air (every 2 weeks, Saturdays, 10.30-11.30 am) please write to firstname.lastname@example.org. My show is called Extraordinary People.
