Gordon Warren – Musical Mystery Tour
More about Gordon:
I’ve always had a big interest in listening to and learning about radio & music. Hearing ‘Radio Caroline’, 'Radio London' & ‘Radio Luxembourg’ when young, through fading, crackling & whistling sound; then ‘Capital Radio’ (London’s then ‘new’ commercial local radio station); and up all-night with the radio 'talk shows'.
Kenny Everett (who I met at ‘Capital Radio’ where I did a junior journalist spot) was a big influence, inspiring me to write & make up my own stories, recording and delicately editing with scissors & tape on cassette!
Although wanting to get involved in radio, opportunities were limited then. I got involved in the Royal Court Theatre’s Youth Theatre; went to Drama College; and moved into professional acting, theatre, performing and drama work; and have also written & performed my own spoken-word poetry.
After 13 years in Fleckney, I moved to Market Harborough in 2013. Following attending the HFM Radio Broadcasting course in 2014, I was pleased to become an HFM presenter, covering various shows and often welcoming people aboard my ‘musical mystery tour’ of the great musical landscape, particularly tracks from some of the best singer-songwriters and musicians; including songs that have stood the test of time; with words that matter; have a point to make; or perhaps a story to tell; as well as ‘Stories Behind The Tracks’; Musical Challenges; and often a ‘Musical Location Stop-Over’ or a featured artist. It’s all about the Music....
