Since inheriting his sister’s records when he was knee-high to a grasshopper in the 70’s, Chris knew music and communications was the life for him, and the more buttons, levers, switches, faders and general gadgets involved the better, with his first “DJ kit” being a Bush Cassette Recorder and a Bontempi Organ, for his 4th Birthday.
Starting with a modest collection of MFP and K-Tel compilations and a few Beatles 45s mostly more battered than your average cod, he’s never looked back. In the early days it was the joy of spending 85p for this week’s hot single from WH Smith, and still having 15p pocket money left for a small scoop of cola cubes.
Chris showcases his perennial penchant for 70’s and 80’s music and it’s modern contemporaries on *Solid Gold Sounds*, where he is just as happy with forgotten 45s as their well known air-play and chart counterparts, so expect an eclectic and original mix of both on the programme.
He can surprise too and drop an odd track in from before and beyond, but 70’s and 80’s is the main order of the day, along with regular features and occasional themed specials; so if you love that wonderful era too (even if you weren’t there..) – there’s a warm welcome for all to enjoy the classics and maybe even a few you missed !!!). “Relax” T-Shirt, flairs and platforms entirely optional ! The comical and sometimes surreal goings on at Pitchford Towers can also provide for a good titter when they arise.
