About A Breath Of Fresh Air
So glad you’ve stopped by. Thank you. I’m Sandy Kaye and like most people, I’m really into the music I grew up with – the soundtrack of my own life. It’s the music of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s that takes me back to my youth. The Blues and R&B speak to my soul. Pop tunes remind me exactly where I was and what I was doing when I first heard them. My taste is a little eclectic so I try to feature the tunes that really move me in some way. As a journalist with a long history in both radio and television here in Australia, I’m also extremely passionate about a good story. So, I always try to find artists with great back stories and get them to tell me about how or why they made their awesome music. I really want you to be both entertained and to learn something new every time you tune in. A Breath of Fresh Air is my passion project. I wake up with it and go to sleep at night with it. I research, produce and present relentlessly and spend a good deal of time tracking down  the people who make the music. It makes me very happy to share their stories  and their lives with you. I love to hear where they’ve come from, how they became successful, what lies behind the music and what they’re up to today. I really hope you do too. ABOFA began as a covid project. It’s now a weekly, hour-long show that’s broadcast on radio stations right across the world and it can be listened to as a podcast too on all the top podcast platforms. I’m so grateful to you for supporting me and A Breath of Fresh Air and I really encourage you to get in touch with me with feedback, comments or requests. In fact, our final segment of the show is devoted to you. It’s the one where you ask me to find someone you’d like to hear from. Doesn’t matter who it is – as long as it’s an artist from the 60’s 70’s or 80’s (who’s still alive and in good health) I’ll do my finest work as a researcher to track them down and bring them onto the show for you. Perhaps you might like to say hello to them too? A wise man once told me that if you can find a way to do what you love, you will love your work. He was so right. I hope you enjoy A Breath of Fresh Air as much as I love creating it for you.

GARY JACKSON BIO  BIO -     Like many radio presenters, I started as a mobile DJ. From there I went   on to hospital radio, and when the FM frequency beckoned, I jumped at the   chance to join Skyline Gold in Southampton.     It soon became apparent that other stations were sometimes short of   presenters, and the norm in those days was to play automated music. In   2011 I offered a show to Forest FM – Sounds of the 70s – which I still   present there to date, and I soon realized that here was a gap that   needed filling elsewhere.     Other stations followed including the legendary 1260KYA in San   Francisco, Castledown Radio in Wiltshire, and the Bigl, today’s   equivalent of 60s pirate station Radio London. (I have been broadcasting   live on the BigL from my south coast studio six days a week since 2013).     Soon stations all over the world started airing the shows. Some have   used the shows for a while then replaced them with live presenters when   available, others have given them their own permanent slots.     Many people have asked who my favorite interviewee was, and the answer   has to be Stu Cook of Creedence Clearwater Revival. Not only did Stu   give me around twenty minutes, he was happy to talk about the days when   things weren’t good, and after all, Creedence was my all-time favorite   band in the 70s.  For the 60s, it has to be The Searchers who are friends, and I have   published their official website since 1997. As I have often said “On   the rare occasions when things were hard going, I went to see The   Searchers. Their sheer hard work and professionalism put me to shame and   gave me the kick up the backside I needed”.     My shows often feature guests, and interviews have included chats with   Frank Allen of The Searchers – always a delight, Mike Rutherford   (Genesis), Paul Carrack (Mike and The Mechanics, Squeeze), Justin   Hayward, Alan Clark (Dire Straits), Tom McGuiness of Manfred Mann,   Deborah Bonham, Simon Townsend, Stu Cook (Creedence) Dave Clark (Dave   Clark Five) and just about every other 60s band still working!     Not only that but household names like Jenny Eclair and Toyah Willcox   have also joined me!     My live radio work has taken me to California, and my shows now air from   Tenerife to Tasmania!     Very much a fan of personality radio, I try to remember that the   listener comes first, I try to give my shows a live feel and keep   listeners interested with features like the “A side B side”, “follow   that” and the “back to front” song.     One of my favorite write-ups came from Ace FM in Spain – sadly now long   gone:     Gary started his DJ career back in the days when half a dozen singles   from Saturday Night Fever were guaranteed to fill the dance floor.   Hospital radio beckoned in the early 1990s and he now finds himself on a   Spanish station, surprised that it’s the English-speaking population   that listens, having always thought the most suitable audience would be   those who hadn’t a clue what he was on about.     He fell in love with beat music in the 60s, and in 1997 he was   approached by The Searchers to publish their official website which he   does to this day.     The Gary Jackson Show is packed with special features – not for the   audience’s benefit, but because at his age just staying awake for two   hours are tough enough, and every little helps!

Steve James - Blues Radio Presenter - A little about me 

  I live just north of London, UK and am a lifelong musician having picked up the guitar at 12 years old.
