Every tune has a link to the previous, a chain that has now been running continuously since early 2018. I invite a different guest to each show and the links can be obvious, obscure or downright tenuous. It matters not, though, as the outcome is a show of musical surprises and sharp turns peppered with the occasional piece of information.

Kevin Philips

Growing up in a house filled with the sounds of Basie, Kenton and Bird, my interest in music was piqued. As the period of my musical foundation was the 1970’s though, I found myself drawn to the teenage boy interests of rock music, punk and new wave, in the 1980's I moved towards indie and world music but always with an ear to the roots of blues and jazz. Latterly, my tastes have dissipated even further and this is reflected in my shows. From Lead Belly to Tchaikovsky, Elvis to Richard Hell, and Bowie to the Real Thing.
