I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was put to me - did I write for any on-line publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!

Mike James Rock Show

Saturday's from 8pmUK
mikejamesrockshow@gmail.com

<p class="font_8" style="color: #ffffff">T</p>
<p style="color: #222222"><span style="color: #000000">The Mike James Rock Show was established in the early months of 2008 on Exeter based community radio station Phonic FM. Founding members Mike James, Daniel Beck & John Marshal would cover all genre’s from Rock, Metal, Ska, Punk and all things in between building up a local following with their permanent Friday night slot.</span></p>
<p style="color: #222222"><span style="color: #000000">Over the course of that year interviews were booked with some of the big named acts to visit the city and the show quickly picked up notoriety for being able to gain interviews with acts other local station wouldn’t touch and wouldn’t cover.Over the course of the next 18 months the show would build in stature and started to draw on Mike James’ experience in event promotion to put on their own live show’s supporting the local scene by adding local act to the bill with bigger touring bands.As 2009 drew to an end both Dan & John could not commit to the show as personal circumstances meant they could not support the growth of the show.  Over the next few months a number of people volunteered their time to help with events and the show but as before personal circumstances meant they could not commit so Mike James took the helm alone.</span></p>
<p style="color: #222222"><span style="color: #000000"> </span></p>
<p style="color: #222222"><span style="color: #000000">In 2010 as the show grew Mike’s policy of supporting the scene seen saw </span>more <span style="color: #000000">local/regional act join him in the studio for interviews as well as seeing Mike attend a number of national festival and gigs to interview the acts playing.Mike arranged regular club nights in Exeter and started to promote tribute acts as well as giving local bands the chance to play live as support. 2010 was also the year of the first Halloween Zombie Ball at the Black Horse in Exeter and was broadcast live on Phonic FM.</span></p>
<p style="color: #222222"><span style="color: #000000"> </span></p>
<p style="color: #222222"><span style="color: #000000">By 2011 Mike’s show had grown and was now attracting interest with bigger PR & Press agencies which saw Mike and cohort Dann C Steer travelling the country to interview much bigger calibre of acts as well as seeing Mike cover a great number of festivals. With regular popular club nights in Exeter Mike was able to team up to companies to arrange album launch parties and ticket give away nights.After a successful summer of interviews at festival and networking national station TotalRock (soon to be Bloodstockradio) ask is the show would like to syndicate to their station which Mike gladly jumped at the opportunity.Towards the end of the busiest year Mike found out he had been nominated for FM DJ of 2011 at the South West Music Awards. Mike attended the awards ceremony to present the award for best Metal Act (Red Mist) and he also picked up the only publicly voted award of the night making him the FM DJ of 2011.</span></p>
<p style="color: #222222"><span style="color: #000000"> </span></p>
<p style="color: #222222"><span style="color: #000000">In early 2012 Mike’s now award winning show took up a 6 month residency on web based station Fire Brand Rock Radio taking the tally of stations to 3 that the show was broadcast on which saw an influx of local bands scrambling for a slot to be interviewed on the show knowing that they wouldn’t just be heard in the west county. Another summer of festivals attracted more interviews with national and international acts including headliners. After the summer Mike signed the show to be syndicated to another of the UK’s top 5 rock radio stations Planetmosh.com who gave the show a prime slot of Saturday evenings. Towards the end of the year it was becoming apparent that extra help was needed for the live broadcasts as well as in the background and show supporter and long time friend Dann C Steer took on the roll. At this time Mike learnt that he had been nominated for a national award as DJ of the year in yet another publicly voted awards.</span></p>
<p style="color: #222222"><span style="color: #000000"> </span></p>
<p style="color: #222222"><span style="color: #000000">At the start of 2013 with a huge online campaign the Mike James Rock Show won the converted DJ Of 2013 Award at the Pure Rawk Awards. This award drew lots of attention to the show and Mike soon signed with Orlando  base station Sick World Radio who would carry the show on their network and push it throughout the east coast of America. Mike also launched a website www.mikejamesrockshow.com which is a web based magazine supporting the local scene and also a place where the shows are linked with the like of its social media and YouTube.Dann soon took on the Persona of Devon Dann and became a co-presenter with his knowledge of the local scene and his ability in visual editing meant that all interviews could be filmed along with the acts that came in to the show nearly every week and put on to the show growing YouTube channel and website. With the two of them covering a multitude of festivals and events it meant that a lot more could be covered. After the busiest summer to date the show was picked up by yet another station in the USA this time based in Nashville who gave the show their Saturday night drive time slot.2013 also saw the Halloween Zombie Ball grow to another sell out event at Exeter Phoenix, this time boasting four stages including an outdoor stage as part of the accompanying Zombie Walk through the city centre which was attended by over 750 zombie dressed people.  In the dying months of the year Mike & Dann set out a plan for the coming years and it was decided that more help was need for the behind the scenes/backroom work on the show as they looked to develop the website and build on the club nights and events planned for the following year. With this in mind Biff Smith AKA doctorbiffgood joined the team with his knowledge of website design & management along with the local scene having been a popular club DJ in the now defunct Bunker Club. Biff is an added bonus and draws from different taste in rock and metal which broadens the scope of the show.</span></p>
