Matthew on 'The Late Show' BBC Local radio in the South West

After being stuck on a hill in the snow in February 2009 after traveling back from a show in Exeter I ended up giving news reports to BBC Radio about the situation, this lead to me being on the same show the following week to talk about music. This became a regular feature for 7 years where I talk about anything from Folk and Blues to Goth and Progressive Rock.

The Late Show presented by Vic Morgan was on BBC Local Radio in Devon, Cornwall and the Channel Islands until Vic retired from the BBC.

I on occasion still appear on the radio to talk about specific topics and I have been an advisor and researcher on music topics to various departments of the BBC for a number of years.
