Hi there everyone.
Democracy is a word that gets thrown around quite a lot nowadays. What did the ancient Greeks have in mind? Well Patrick Chalmers has spent a lot of time and energy finding out and has been kindly sharing his research with the wider world. Here is an interview I recently had with him. (We were also experimenting with a new electronic hand held stabilizing unit. Thanks to my daughter Francesca for being our camera person Guinea Pig). Steady now!
Here is a link to the film he mentions in the interview.

After my introduction to Ska in the eighties, I didn’t give much thought to the roots of the music. Little did I know it had been around for over twenty years already by then. Here I speak to Ken Stewart, the manager/keyboardist of the Skatalites, some of them playing together since 1964. The concert was in a small venue in Toulouse called Le Rex, but it was certainly a big night of music.
Enjoy the interview.
