Lord Litter 2017
... musician ..."His own music has sometimes taken a backseat to his fame as a radio broadcaster but is no less important when it comes to his legacy. His voice is sometimes whiskey hued and gruff, at other times a high tenor with a bit of a nasal quality. He has strong musical abilities on guitar and other instruments. He leans towards *authentic expression*, that is, simply done, from the heart type songs with a poignant message or insight, although he has also ventured into harder rock, electronic and experimental areas." Don Campau
... dj ... "Continues to produce one of the most delightful selections of no rules eclecticism on the radio today." Mick Magic

to whom it may concern
For various reasons I finally stopped spreading any Facebook links/addresses
PLEASE avoid Emojis when writing to me. These are another depletion of human communication. We loose our skill to express what we feel. No offence, but I'm not a babbling idiot, who needs stupid little faces to understand what you mean.
