As far as Mark can remember he had always loved music. From the late 70’s his pocket money was “invested” in anything that sounded good. From Junior Mervin’s Police and Thieves to David Bowie’s Golden Years to Karen Young’s Hot Shot. Radio went hand in hand with the ever-growing music collection.
Listening to the likes of Radio London, Capital Radio and Radio One though out the 70’s and early 80’s. Unfortunately if Mark wanted Soul, Dance, RNB, Disco and Jazz he had to scale up and down the Long Wave and Medium wave bands to the likes of Radio Luxembourg and one or two dodgy French stations just to hear something different.
Music and radio became a part of his life, if he wasn’t playing it, he was listening to it.
