A lifelong greedy consumer of music and one-half of your hosts on From the Bottom of the Record Box. Thanks for showing interest in the show. I've been listening to and collecting records since childhood. I had a great start to it, my father was an inspiration to me in his listening habits sharing musical gems with me on his much treasured Bang & Olufsen record player. We still share music with each other to this day, something which is an endless source of pleasure for me. I enjoy a wide gamut of musical genres and will give anything a listen, so dear listener, please recommend a track for the show, I guarantee I will listen to it.

I've been sharing songs and playlists for so many years that it only seemed right to share this passion and so From The Bottom of the Record Box was born. I take great delight in finding something new, fresh and original and love putting something on that I know will excite and from time to time there is also always room to test Richard's musical boundaries. At night I moonlight as Professor Gramophone - ElectroSwing DJ Extraordinaire. Click on my name to contact me directly.
Sammy Brue has managed to pen another belter with Crash Test Kid and we've got a track on the show. Turn it up, it's no acoustic meander. The red/yellow splatter vinyl signed by the man himself is on the way to Record Box HQ. They're all gone now but you've still got time to grab the black vinyl release here.
Also coming from the US this week is Reigning Sounds' classic LP Home For Orphans.
Dullards bring a healthy amount of self-written, self-produced glam power pop to Richard's final solo bookend of Season I. George and Roger deliver funny, toe-tapping vibes with their insightful and inspiring Dullards. We play the double A-side single today and discuss the wider merits of this fantastic musical collaboration.
