Raised On Radio is a blog about the power of music – music from the past, from the present and possibly even music of the future… if I ever get round to perfecting that time machine.

Each blog post will focus on one particular piece of music from the lifetime of The Listener – it will seek to explain the significance of the song whether that is on a personal level or on a social, spiritual, political or cultural level.

The song is the thing – to kinda paraphrase Hamlet (who never released much musical content of any worth to be honest, so why I’ve mentioned him is a bit stupid).

Get used to going off on a tangent – it’ll happen a lot.
