My name is David Barker and I was a teenage art rocker. I ran my own record label, Glass Records from 1981-1989, A&R’d Paperhouse Records, was head of A&R at Creation for 2 years, and had two other labels, Seminal Twang and God Bless. My show for Domino Radio; Rock n Roll Phew, is a non-linear trawl through the international rock n roll underground, playing the kind of records I grew up with in the late 60’s early seventies - the first rock era - a time when rock n roll was as wide and as deep as the Atlantic Ocean - by hairy freaks and beautiful losers, with no additional additives or corporate sponsorship. Rock at its peak.
