Show Archives

Great Music Stories is fully independent interview website – and not tied to any specific media outlet. The focus has always been on the stories behind the music.

In addition to running Great Music Stories, in previous years I have produced and presented music shows on local radio where I have played new music and featured some of my Great Music Stories interviews.
