On this week's MIDDAY SHOW I will be speaking to Roland Link.... I am REALLY looking forward to this show for MANY reasons!
Roland is a music obsessive, which has led to him spending a great deal of his life watching bands, playing in bands and, for the last fifteen years, researching and writing about bands. His missives have featured in numerous music papers and magazines, including Record Collector, New Musical Express, The Big Takeover, Mojo and The Big Cheese. He has also conducted interviews with a wide range of artists as part of Base Media Group's online Base Sessions series and written the liner note for Ruts DC's 'Rhythm Collision Vol. 2' album and the Ruts' 'Virgin Years' box set.
He is the author of three books, Kicking Up A Racket - The Story of Stiff Little Fingers 1977-1983 (2009 Appletree Press), What You See Is What You Get - Stiff Little Fingers 1977-1983 (2014 Colourpoint) and Love In Vain - The Story of The Ruts and Ruts DC (2015 Cadiz Music).

He endeavours to spend as little time as possible in the rain by splitting his time between Birmingham, England and Krakow, Poland.
