I’m so sad to hear the news that Gerry Marsden has passed away. I’ve sung along to You’ll Never Walk Alone at Anfied hundreds of times and was lucky enough to chat to him on BBC Radio Merseyside in 2013.

He came into the studio and I recorded a chat with him for playback on my show the following day. It was a great interview, he was fabulous! When he left the studio, I checked the computer and to my horror, I realised the file was missing! I’d obviously clicked the wrong thing and it hadn’t saved. I actually heard the music from the shower scene in Psycho in my head!

This was a MASSIVE mistake. I didn’t just lose an interview, I lost an interview with a Merseyside legend and I did it at RADIO MERSEYSIDE!

As luck would have it, Gerry was still in the building somewhere, doing interviews on other radio stations around the country “down the line”. I found him and told him what had happened. He said, “Arr Ay Graham! You’re joking aren’t you?” I sheepishly asked him if we could do the interview again and he was really good about it. We did the re-record and he was even better second time around.

Thanks for everything Gerry, You’ll Never Walk Alone!

In the latest audiobook I’ve done, I play Britain’s most notorious twins – Ron and Reg Kray. I also play their Geordie friend, Steve Wraith who started writing to the twins as a schoolboy and became a regular prison visitor. Eventually, the Twins hired Steve as an unofficial advisor, which brought him close to more members of the crime family. As the voice of Steve, I talk about Ron’s time in Broadmoor and visiting Reg, who served almost 30 years in a variety of prisons, where the gangster was treated with the utmost respect by the staff and the inmates.

The Altar Boy is the latest audiobook I’ve done. I tell the story of the infamous Teesside drug dealer Paddy Molony in his own words. I lived on Teesside for four years where I presented The Breakfast Show on TFM so doing the audiobook took me back to a lot of familiar places.

The audiobook is full of tales from the estates of Middlesbrough over the last 50 years and Paddy’s Moloney’s very colourful life. From a two up two down in Cannon Street to Grovehill and the luxury of an inside lav! Going from a “quiet lad” at St Joseph’s to his first spell in borstal. This is a brutally honest account of Paddy’s journey from an Altar boy to a Criminal, spanning four decades including his dealings with some of Middlesbrough’s notorious characters to the big guns from further afield.

Narrating it, I was gripped from the very first chapter. The good, the bad, the frightening, from elation to grief and every emotion in between.

“Every Saint has a past, every Sinner has a future.”

The latest audiobook I’ve done is, “The Seafarer’s Lost Daughter” by Faye Godwin and it’s good story.

The last thing Lindy Cook wants to do is leave beautiful Yorkshire behind. The countryside is the only home she’s ever known, and its splendid landscapes lift her spirits even amidst trouble, so does Titus, the bright-eyed country boy who’s always been her dear friend. Lindy’s troubles are many. Papa has gone to London for work; Mama is quite unwell, and her two little brothers, Reuben and Aram, constantly need to be fed and cared for. With no resources, she has no choice but to pack her little family into a stifling railway carriage headed for a whole new world – a world she doesn’t understand: London.

The Shamus Dialogues

By Friedrich Thorn

In this audiobook, I play a talking cat and 13 different human characters. This is NOT a children’s book though, it’s definitely for grown-ups!

Shamus is not your typical cat – standing six feet, seven inches, to be exact and with the uncanny ability to needle sudden realisation out of even the most dull-witted, flea-bitten ape.

This audiobook presents some of Shamus’ favourite encounters with that pernicious primate species known as mankind. Armed with a biting, perceptive wit and an occasional glass of Scotch, he is sure to amuse and bemuse the average listener, while the above-average listener is likely to throw this clap-trap directly into the nearest incinerator.

The latest audiobook I’ve done is a story of romance and adventure. It’s called, “Intrigued by an Ancient Pedigree” by Sandra Sookoo.

Three months after the birth of his son, Miles Lawrence Hawkins, the fifth Earl of Archewyne, is attempting to acclimate to fatherhood, but he longs for adventure. Someone is masquerading as the heir to a powerful and ancient ducal title with the anonymous backing of other members of the ton, and Miles is asked to investigate. It would mean leaving his wife and child, yet he refuses to return to London without them. Emmaline Hawkins, the new Countess of Archewyne, is torn between wanting to be a good mother and wishing to recapture the excitement digging up relics and hunting treasures brings. Just as she thinks her adventuring days are over, she meets a young pawn broker questing after the legendary Lancelot Stone. Determined to retain the thrill of the chase, she stumbles upon solid proof the relic is in Paris, and convinces her husband they should investigate.

There are a couple of ‘naughty’ bits in it so make sure whatever device you listen to it on is at least 18 years old!
