Week 165 – Steve Tovey Remembered

On this weeks show Damon remembers Steve Tovey with a programme of tracks which were all favourites of Steve’s. We sadly lost Steve last year, but Cameron Lloyd suggested I waited until now, as last week would have seen Steve’s 70th Birthday. Steve was quite a character who I was pleased to have met on a number of occasions and he was always full of enthusiasm so long as there was ENTERTAINMENT!
