My Music

Please note that as from 1st August 2021, Victor and I have shut down Liverpooljazz which no longer operates.

We have also closed down our Liverpooljazz email address, website, listings guide and correspondence.

Victor and I wish to thank all those in the jazz and music community for the support you have given us over the 15 very successful years we ran the organisation. It has been our pleasure working with and for so many enthusiastic people. We believe we were able to play a small part in raising the profile of live jazz performance around Merseyside and the northwest of England.

What ran  for over 100 programmes on Liverpool Community Radio in the name of Liverpooljazz, has now terminated along with the Liverpooljazz operation. However the nice people at LCR asked me to carry on with a two hour regular programme of all genres of music and chat on local topics and issues and usually includes interviews with local people.  I record the programme at the studios of Liverpool Community Radio which goes out across Greater Merseyside on 106.7fm.  My programme is just one of those scheduled by the studio. In addition and until further notice the programme goes out via a podcast around the clock on demand and accessible on your computer or smart phone by going to

I present monthly music reminiscence therapy sessions at a care home in Liverpool.

By arrangement, from time to time, I give talks to social and cultural groups on the subject of the contribution made by Jewish Composers and Lyricists to the American and British Popular Song. This is usually a one hour informal but structured talk with musical excerpts and projected images. I take each song and talk about the writers and collaborators from a list of over 200 well known, and not so well known. Researching the many composers enabled me to complete a 143 page anthology.
