I discovered Mike:
Oh dear. This is a tough one. There are several occasions. I heard Moonlight Shadow played a lot when I was 4 years old. When I was 12, Sentinel was in the Top 10 and was, too, played. A lot. And of course, MO's Blue Peter theme was used around the time I would have watched that programme without viewing it for what it is, ie a funny comedy. But I suppose I really got 'into' Mike five or six years ago when my piano teacher (yes) suggested I listen to Tubular Bells, because he liked it. And so did I.
Favourite album:
For differing reasons: Ommadawn, Five Miles Out, Amarok, TB2 and TSODE.
Favourite song:
Five Miles Out.
Favourite instrumental:
Long: Amarok. Short: Jungle Gardenia.
Other hobbies:
Apart from music? Oh dear. Going out, cycling, swimming, reading, writing screenplays which never get past first base, acting.
Date of birth:
Unemployed, I suppose, but I prefer to say 'Musician'. So I will. 'Musician', then.
On the Amarok list since:
October 1998, except for the fact I was off from May 99 to Oct 99 and then rejoined.
