Jez was bitten by the music bug when he was very young and never found an antidote. He made his first radio broadcast on a local hospital radio station aged just 16, and in the years that followed (and he concedes there have been a fair number of these...), he became an avid collector of music from a very broad range of genres - Blues, Soul, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, Pop & Country - and developed a passion for discovering rarities and forgotten classics, while at the same time championing new music.
He is a member of the Independent British Blues Broadcasters Association (IBBA) a collective of radio presenters which promotes Blues music throughout the UK and beyond.
The first record he bought was 'Ride A White Swan' by T-Rex
He has been a familiar voice on Radio Cardiff in South Wales for many years, and his two shows 'Soul of The Blues' and 'Sweet Company' are heard weekly on the mighty WRFN 1025
