Hello dear friends and strangers. Up now is my Purple Radio radio show from last night. You can download and listen at your leisure.

Thrill at descriptions of Bloc Weekend, swoon at the downtempo beauty, marvel at the sound of my percussion-filled youth with not just one but TWO pieces of music that made me who I am today and have a good old bounce around the room with a nice up finale.

You can download the entire show from here, or get just under an hour’s worth of music via the Spotify playlist.
