I’m EVP, Co-Head Global Podcasts for Sony Music Entertainment. I’m excited to say that Somethin’ Else, which I founded in 1991, is now part of Sony Music Entertainment.

I started my media life broadcasting from dodgy flats in South London as a DJ on a pirate radio station I launched with lifelong friends Gilles Peterson and Chris Phillips. I’ve also been a TV presenter for the BBC and a radio host for Kiss FM, BBC Radio 3 and 4 and Jazz FM, where I now host a weekly contemporary jazz show. In a rather surreal twist I recently was awarded an MBE for services to radio. Not sure how that happened.
