Apr 7, 2020 - Message from TV:
These are strange times without gigs...
I've tried to make up for it a little by recording some live performances in my home studio for you.
Hope you enjoy these ten songs I've chosen...all for free and available now.
Please consider joining my YouTube channel and I'll see if I can record some more as the lockdown continues!

Includes discographies, biographies, family trees, press cuttings, much more. Unpublished in any other form.
