Gordon ‘Rockmeister’ Cooper


I brought my first single in 1969… “Sugar Sugar” by The Archies!

I continued collecting rather a cross section of music until my best friend bought me ‘Burn” by Deep Purple for my 18th birthday, and that was it ! … I became a life long ‘rocker’ from then on!

So my first love is ROCK and my second and third love, although The Carpenters are my guilty pleasure! Aside from rock music I also love ’60s and ’70s music (probably because I lived through them!).

My love of radio has been going for more years than I care to remember, having spent 25 plus years with Sunshine Radio on the Isle of Wight and a stint on internet radio with Vectis Radio for eight years. I then seemed to get offers to broadcast my show all over the place, and here we are!

A final thought – If someone had told me in 1969 not to collect the 6000 plus albums I collected over the decades because you’d be able to access them (and more) on a mobile phone that fits within the palm of your hand, I’d have never had believed them! Mind, I did enjoy collecting them!
