Wherever your life is headed, the best pat will be the journey. We will be on that journey with you… so, simply follow the twisted road with us.
I’ve been involved with Internet radio since 2009 when I discovered it while playing Yoville. I was immediately hooked and became a constant “requester.” My music favorites range the decades and genres. I’m a “Jersey Girl” and a “Woodstock survivor,” so I know a lot about and play a lot of classic rock from the 60’s and 70’s. But, I never stopped listening and loving music and my sons kept me current and involved. I began DJ-ing in 2011 and as a result of phenomenal DJs and listeners my music knowledge and likes broaden tremendously. While the classic/blues thread is always present, you’ll hear plenty of brand new music, country, American, roots, and alternative music on my shows. I also whole-heartedly support independent musicians – through Face Book, friends, and on-air interviews, I have a great collection of Indie artists to share as well. You’ll find me on-air on Fridays (6 – 9 pm) and often do some “spontaneous Jammers” shows as well. But, I also love rockin’ to Twisted Road’s Auto DJ which never ceases to surprise me with its variety!
So, see you in the Chat Box and TGIF! WITH JAMMERS!

Following in the footsteps of my best friend Jammers, I took to the air in March of 2013. At the time my library was limited, but my excitement about being a DJ and sharing music with a wide range of listeners from all parts of the world, outweighed my thin compliment of tunes. I grew up in the 60s and enjoyed the music of that era, particularly Roots Rock, Folk Rock, and Protest Music.
I do have a love of Motown, surf and psychedelic rock, too. I am on the air on Mondays from 6AM – 9AM Eastern Time, and my shows are generally a mix of all of the aforementioned genres with a healthy dose of the Blues added.
Music was my first love and always has been a constant part in my life one way or another.
My first skills in active music have been added on the trumpet, classical and big band swing stuff.
The interest in “popular” music began to grow in my teen years, and my older sisters and their friends had a huge impact on my taste. So the first record I’ve bought was a bit untypical for a boy of my age in the 80ies: the Best Of Jethro Tull.
While my record collection slowly grew, I quit playing the trumpet
and started to tease the bass guitar. My first band, Dee D. Buka (strange name, huh? Just a construction of initials of the original members) was a typical rock band of the late 80ies. Unfortunately, we had to disband not long after leaving school, as the members started to disappear all over Germany for studies and things.
While my record collection grew a bit faster, I joined a cover-band called The Crew, playing a mix of German and English songs, mostly not the all-time greatest hits. Due to personal changes, I was forced to take over the lead singer’s position.
Some other personal changes lead us to a new concept and band name. Quadrophobia played original songs, but never hit the stage, as the members were too much into family and work and things.
Meanwhile, my record collection grew and grew, I fell into the internet trap and I found myself into the arms of a family called The Heepsters, after I met John Lawton at a concert and his wife Iris told me about something like Heepsters on the web. While making music myself turned out to be something for special occasions only (like marriages or fan conventions), my record collection still grew.
The Heepsters made their step from the web into real life on several occasions somewhere on the world and I got also a lot of musical inspiration from that direction, as many (or most) of them are music addicted with a huge range of favourite bands. One of those Heepsters made me aware of web-radio and soon, I joined forces with her as a DJ. At that station, I got to know lots of amazing people, DJs and listeners, and my musical horizon got wider.
After nearly 4 years there, I needed a break from broadcasting and I quit in autumn 2016. Two of my former colleagues founded a new station and I decided to join them, because I felt, that this will be a great team to share my love for music and so, I came back “on air” in January 2017 on Twisted Road Radio. My record collection still grows, but much slower now, as I have a real storage problem.
3000 longplay vinyls
500 vinyl 12″ singles
1400 vinyl 7″ singles
1000 longplay CDs
150 CD singles
Many tapes, DVDs, a few other special formats and ten of thousands of mp3s.
It’s mostly rock of all types, but also “happy metal”, jazz, classic, pop, blues, soul etc. of all eras from all over the world.
My main show on Sundays has a focus on krautrock, psychedelic, progressive, art rock and the like, but I love to do other theme shows as well. So sometimes, I’m in the mood for hard ‘n’ heavy stuff, blues or music with friends involved. As 98276 stations and 3948576 DJs already play current charts and the 100 most dead-played songs of all time, you won’t hear much from that at my shows. Some big names here and there, but not their biggest hits.
I’m a Leonard. Hang around long enough and you’ll understand. My love of music is lifelong and deeply Southern. Southern music is filled with stories. Because the best way to hear a good story told is from the standpoint of a Southern mouth. I don’t believe in boring people. There’s something special about everybody. We all have a story to tell.
I could describe myself with words like mom, grandma, teacher, poet, and the list goes on. But I would rather like to introduce myself to you as music lover. And some of the music that makes up my spirit comes from the Beatles, Grand Funk, Prince, John Prine, Tom Waits, AC?DC, Pink Floyd, Eminem, Portugal. The Man, The Revivalists, The Moody Blues, Dolly Parton, Muddy Waters, Pink, The Mavericks. This list could go on and on as well, and it is ever growing, but hopefully it gives you a sense of who I am. I hope you will join me and share the musical journey.
