John developed his passion for radio listening to the early Offshore Radio stations floating off the Essex Coast of England In the 1960’s and the BBC when he started to grow up a bit. His interest in Jazz stemmed from frequent visits to jazz bars, pubs and clubs in London in his teens, and cities in the U.S these days whenever he can. This has helped shape his love of all forms of jazz. He hosts Doodlin on Tuesday evenings, rotating with Mo Noretsky as well as sitting in on other jazz programs.
