My monthly radio show (1st Friday of every month) went out Friday, at 9pm UK time (10pm or 22:00 in Europe) and was repeated later in the evening for America at 9pm PST (11pm CST).


The show is called CROSSING BORDERS – the official brief being “a show with guitar-based instrumental music throughout history and from around the world that utilizes some kind of echo or reverb effect on the guitar”.

North Sea Surf Radio is a 24/7 internet radio station playing instrumentals only and you can find it here:
