Remember The Mixtape: The Story Of Rock 1973 to 1974

Originally compiled in 1989 on a C90 cassette, this was part of a series of mine featuring some of the hits from rock history as well as tracks off a few of my favourite albums.

Artists include Rodriguez, Doobie Brothers, Allman Brothers Band, Deep Purple, Focus, Yes, Led Zeppelin, Xit, Shawn Phillips and many more.

This tape is on page 13 of book 7 (of 8) of my hand-written mixtape archive.

A Year Of Presenting The Blues On All Jazz Radio

On the 4th of October 2012, at age 53, I started something new in my life, presenting a two-hour blues show on the then brand new internet radio station, All Jazz Radio. Despite my reluctance founder Eric Alan encouraged me to give it a go, and here we are a year later!

As my father said recently; “you are just making mixtapes like you always did when you were a teenager, except now the technology has changed, and you are getting to share you love and passion for music with other people.”

I play an eclectic mix of old, new, borrowed and blues, with a special focus on blues by South African artists.

I call the show “Vagabond Blues” because I wander around the world of music picking up scraps of information from all over and everywhere.

My very first website I created in 1997 was called Vagabond’s World and it is still on the internet.

The Vagabond Blues show can be heard every Tuesday and Thursday between 4pm and 6pm South African time on All Jazz Radio.

You need a website

People need to Find You and Talk To You.

Finding you is called Marketing and talking to you is called Sales.

I have now just saved you 3 years of study at University.

Yes, it is that simple.

For this you need not just a website, but a web presence … but a website is a very good place to start.

I love building websites and have been doing it since 1997.

Let me help you with yours.
