About Me

Daz In The Hat Is The Name, Bringing You The Best Music Is My Game.

Music has always been a big passion for me, although I can't play or sing for toffee... should I break into a tune I'd immediately empty a venue! I kid you not! Just the threat of a song from myself fills those that know me with terror!!!

However, I can recognise a talented artist & great music.

I first got involved in the independent music scene after attending open mic nights & gigs following my return to West Yorkshire from Scotland in 2009.

Following this & I became to realise many extremely talented artists performing on local music scenes rarely got heard outside their area. Once I joined local radio I decided this was something I was going try & change, be it in my small way.

Since presenting my first show in 2016 I feel very privileged to have built up a reputation among artists & listeners alike for supporting & giving airtime to independent, unsigned singers & bands around the world.

With suffering from a chronic health condition which excludes me from paid employment, in September 2023 I launched Daz In The Hat Radio as a not for profit internet radio station in its own right. While running the station can be time consuming, with support of volunteers it can be easily managed to fit around my condition.

Daz In The Hat Radio is entirely not for profit, entirely funded by way of my own benefits and donations, we don not charge artists for airtime or receive any income by way of advertising.

You can support us with the running costs of our website, station platform etc which allows Daz In The Hat Radio bring to your ears more music from Independent, unsigned artists in various ways, more details HERE

As well as presenting shows I am also delighted to be involved with two amazing projects

Green Eyed Records (GER) - a music resource & platform that empowers artists by assisting them to develop their own creative voice.

I have also organised & hosted a number of live music events to raise funds for local charities in conjunction with WSO - We Shall Overcome
