I’ve set a new
Track Record

A few weeks ago I was interviewed by the lovely Sue Dougan for her Track Record radio show.

The show is a mix of chit-chat about my career alongside some music that floats my boat. You can get an earful right here if you’re up for it:

What we talked about

  • Why I became interested in creativity and innovation
  • The process that leads to great ideas
  • Some strange jobs that I’ve done over the years
  • My life as a musician
  • My stint as a graffiti artist
  • A brief spell as a radio broadcaster writing poems live on air
  • A little bit about advertising
  • My difficulty with job titles

The music I shared

  • Screamin’ Jay Hawkins – Frenzy
  • Prince – Raspberry Beret
  • Blues Brothers – Everybody Needs Somebody
  • Jimi Hendrix – Crosstown Traffic
  • Muddy Waters – I Can’t Be Satisfied
  • Trombone Shorty – Here Come The Girls
  • Johnny Cash – Hurt
  • The Sex Pistols – God Save The Queen

You can find the tracks on a Spotify playlist right here if you fancy enjoying them in full without me blathering in between them.

And there are more audio interviews coming up very soon.
