With a history of involvement in music that ranges from writing for punk fanzines in the 1970s, through selling records on market stalls, to recording a number of albums that you won't have heard of (and I promise not to play, unless you're very naughty...) it was probably inevitable that I would gravitate sooner or later to producing a radio show.  So here it is, for better or for worse - Radio Frankenstein International.  Its brief is to play music that is too often ignored by much of the mainstream media, ranging from Experimental and Modern Classical, through Reggae, Northern Soul, Jazz, Spoken Word, Doo Wop....and stuff that defies classification.  Think of the programme as a free-form, eclectic sound-collage - and if you don't like what's playing right now, stick around anyway because the next item may be completely different.  Credit where due : I'm merely the producer of the show, which is actually presented by Hazel, a disembodied cyber-entity who would rather be working for Radio 3, but times are hard and you have to take what you can get.

A playlist for each programme will be published at :

Always loving music, with a passion for the 1960’s, he became a presenter on a small radio station in November 2016. Unfortunately, after presenting seven three-hour live shows, the station folded.
