As you can see, I love this music because I was there. I bought the records, I listened to them in the booths in the shops and yes, I'm sure sometimes I got a record home which was worn out from being played in those booths!

My Generation is about a fan bringing some of his favourite music to you rather than going on an ego trip, and I've had some very nice comments from some serious pros in the business who have either been interviewed by me or listened to the show. I won't bore you by listing them here.

To give you a flavour of what the show is like, here's an excerpt from an affiliate station's website - 

Gary started his DJ career back in the days when half a dozen singles from Saturday Night Fever were guaranteed to fill the dance floor. Hospital radio beckoned in the early 1990s and he now finds himself on an FM station, surprised that it's the English speaking population that listens, having always thought the most suitable audience would be those who hadn't a clue what he was on about. He fell in love with beat music in the 60s, and in 1997 he was approached by The Searchers to publish their official website which he does to this day.

Gary Jackson's shows are packed with special features - not for the audience's benefit, but because at his age just staying awake for two hours is tough enough, and every little helps! 

My shows often feature guests, and the interviews have included chats with Mike Rutherford (Genesis), Paul Carrack (Mike and The Mechanics, Squeeze), Alan Clark (Dire Straits), Tom McGuiness of Manfred Mann, Deborah Bonham, Simon Townsend, Stu Cook (Creedence) Dave Clark (Dave Clark Five) and just about every other 60s band still working!

Not only that but household names like Jenny Eclair and Toyah Willcox have also joined me! All listed on listen again in the interview archive

I started out running a mobile disco in 1974, progressing to hospital radio and then FM radio in the 90s. 

My live radio work has taken me to California, and my pre-recorded shows now air from Tenerife to Tasmania!
