Dave Woodard shows
I was born in London’s East End in 1970. It was a cultural melting pot of music and being from a large family I was exposed to an eclectic range of music genres, anything from classical to pop, from rock to motown.
In the early 1980’s I thought I had found my niche, I became a nutty boy! There was just something about ska and 2-Tone that did it for me. However I did grow out of it, influenced by the sound and fashion from black America. So by the mid 80’s I had become a soul boy. The music has stuck with me ever since although I do still enjoy genres of music. Many of the tracks I have selected in my shows still evoke great memories for me, the music for one and the fashion at the time.
The 80’s was a great time for soul and dance music, but it is an untapped goldmine because many of the songs, due to their obscurity and the fact they may have only been available on import vinyl, go unheard. So I hope you enjoy my shows. Please give me some feedback and if you think I have missed anything, let us know and I will get it played.
