It’s an uphill race to the bottom

Soul and social commentary have always gone together.

Pouring water on a downing man and other songs underline the fact that tears are always inextricably linked to clowns and it may be another ride, another town, another window but may your kindness remain. We’re all human.

A show telepathically put together by listeners around the world.

I'm someone who doesn't like parameters, barriers or fences. I'll try and climb over them, burrow under them or just pretend they don't exist - until they don't. Sometimes I'll write about the mind in a poetic way, or poetry with neural undertones, or I'll proselytise endlessly about my favourite new band - or one of the old ones. My Blog will give you the keys to the kingdom. A kingdom with no borders, no expectations and, therefore, no failure.. Because I am endlessly empathetic with people, their motivation, their behaviour,their problems and their quest for knowledge, I work with the pioneering Brighton-based homeless, vulnerable women and disempowered school students charity Off The Fence Trust that has tried to redress the equality deficit for over two decades. I produce, host and promote two radio shows a week: The Whole Nine Yards Sundays 3-5pm on Burgess Hill Radio 103.8FM (www.burgesshillradio.co.uk/listenlive) - and Lost Immortals on Burgess Hill Radio 103.8FM on Sundays 5-7pm. If some thoughts have started gathering in your head too. If those thoughts are even more baby-like, then text this number 07803 269154. I'll call you.
