Dave – Oct 2018
To everything, of course, there has to be a beginning! And the beginning of this little enterprise goes back rather a long way! In 1962, when I was still at school, and the singular event which led me on to my very 'strange journey,' was a song that I heard on the radio one Saturday morning. It was called 'Love Me Do' by The Beatles! Strange name, I thought to myself, but I did like the song, for it seemed to be so different to all of the other stuff coming over the air waves back then! There's no need for me to explain what happened next, is there? What appealed to me about them, was the fact that they wrote their own songs, and what great songs they were too!
Now we need to jump forward to 1966. It was Bob Dylan's song 'Positively Fourth Street' awoke something inside of me that had been dormant. It's very difficult to describe exactly how I was affected by this song, but hearing it changed my life, for ever! The old Terry was dead, and the new one was very much alive!

"Terry blends country with folk a touch of the blues with occasional punk audacity to present an interesting and entertaining programme that sits comfortably alongside anything in the current Texas scene".
