I have been in to music from the age of five with AC/DC being the most influential, so much in fact that I went to Perth Australia in 2016 to see them. I host The Future Starts Here on every Sunday 12 - 2pm playing the best new acts from across Scotland and beyond. I am a bit of a comic book and film geek but don't hold that against me.
