Steve Davis: Snookerstar DJ
Stuart Maconie chats to snooker champion, weird music enthusiast and devoted record collector Steve Davis over a game of snooker.
Stuart chats to the snooker champion, weird music enthusiast and devoted record collector Steve Davis over a game of snooker. Steve's self-styled boring image as a straight-laced snooker star in the 1980s has been smashed apart by his love for far-out and freaky sounds. An increasing number of people are finding out about his love of the left-field from French progressive band Magma to Berlin techno of Surgeon and the American jazz-funk greats Steve comes out as the freak that he truly is. Now retired from the game, Stuart asks Steve about his burgeoning music career, his own radio show on a community station in Essex and DJing in front of thousands at the Bloc weekend. As BBC Music supports Record Store Day this weekend Steve shares his passion for vinyl and how the staff in record shops have had a big part to play in his diverse and beloved collection.
