Hi Im Spike, thanks for stopping by. I have been djing and presenting for over 28 years in various formats, and have worked in radio and clubs across Europe. You can also hear me on Kiss fm across Portugal, this where I host the Sunset Reggae Show every Sunday night between 7 and 8pm uk time. http://www.kissfm.pt
I also supply and produce voice overs for radio, tv, film, audio books etc. If you would like to hear demos of my work visit my web site at http://spikehammond.co.uk. Here you can find out all the details of the services I provide.
Now, about what I do when Im casting.
I play whatever sounds good to me, whether it be rock, alternative, reggae, soul, Celtic, Americana, blues, folk, electronica, soundtracks, jazz, or any other genre you can think of. I play new music and old music. Hard music and soft music. Happy music and sad music. Popular music and obscure music. In a nutshell, I play what I like from a vast range of music and hope that it is enjoyed by a vast range of listeners. Even if you dont like everything theres bound to be something, and you might hear some new sounds that grab you too. So now for the bits that arent good... hung like a hamster, have the attention spam of a goldfish, can be lazy, hate cats, hate dogs, hate squirrels,spend an unhealthy amount of time on the interweb, smelly feet, and wear headphones on a daily basis (even when they arent plugged in??) But other than that just normal!
