Christopher

  • Name:  Christopher
  • When did you join Radio law: 2020
  • Why did you choose to volunteer at Radio Law: It’s a good way to be involved in helping people in hospital feel a bit cheerier. The radio is a great source of company and knowing that Radio Law is broadcast in from the hospital itself and patients and staff can request songs or contribute helps build a sense of community. I also like the interaction with folk.
  • What’s your Favourite Music: My show is called “All That Jazz” and that is exactly what I play. I like classic swing jazz and music from the big band era, some bossa nova and more modern jazz vocalists. I play a variety on the show and am always looking for local jazz musicians who have new music out that we can feature on the show.
  • What’s your show time and what are patients likely to hear during your show: It starts at noon on Tuesdays and Fridays and runs for an hour. Listeners will hear a selection of jazz music, sometimes with a focus on one artist or one featured album, but sometimes more of a general medley. The music is sometimes slow and easy going but other times it is a bit pacier –hopefully it is relaxing, even for people who don’t see themselves as jazz fans. The sorts of artists played commonly include Miles Davis, Chet Baker, Glenn Miller, Dinah Washington, Sarah Vaughan and Madeleine Peyroux. There is some talk, mostly to explain the background to the music, but it’s a music show first and foremost.
  • What do you do in your spare time: I like walking in the hills around Lanarkshire.
