   I present 'All folked Up' and the 'Classical Chillout'  music shows on a Thursday 8pm -10pm.  I have a broad taste in music, and generally have a passion for new music and music generally  that you don't get to hear on commercial radio. I do prefer the independent music scene and singer songwriters in general. I was a teenager when the punk scene erupted, and still have a passion for those socio-political songs, and songs of social commentary.  Songs in general that are 'poetic, or 'story telling', or the passing down of' oral traditons' . So Folk is a good genre to present and ticks all the boxes for me. I once interviewed Max Boyce for a module on my degree course whcih included Social History, and we talked about his song writing, and how he himself was part of that 'oral tradition, and social commentator.I chose to do the Classical Chillout hour because I think at the end of a working day, there is nothing better to unwind and de -stress with some of the greatest composers in the world, and some of the most evocative and relaxing music. Life is hectic and as individuals we are 'available' 24/7 and I think every individual should be able to 'switch off' totally, once in a while, and just listen and not think. (it's good to recharge the batteries)  Stay stress free
