This is is by far the show that I am most proud of putting together and all of my guests have been extremely open and honest about their lives, issues and experiences. You can watch the shows back here.
We have spoken about depression, anxiety, emotional domestic abuse, childhood trauma, alcohol and drug addiction, therapy and so much more. In addition my guests talked about 3 of their 45s that lifts their spirits and we also had a section at the end discussing retro, unusual and cool confectionary. I am so humbled and grateful to all of my guests for being on the show which for some came at a difficult time in their lives.
All back to mine – The concept for this show is that I interview other 45s DJs about their origin story, their musical influences, how they got into DJing and they pick out 7 of their choice 7s to talk about and play just as they would if I went to their place.
