DJ and journalist Steve Lamacq celebrates 30 plus years in the music industry with a new, intimate one man show full of anecdotes and observations, clocked up over three decades of championing new music and interviewing Rock & Roll’s Great & The Good - all live at Gilded Balloon as part of Edinburgh Fringe.

Expect frontline stories from his NME days (including the lunchtime spent interviewing Nirvana in a Shepherds Bush B&B in 1990) and about life at Radio 1 and BBC 6Music, where, over 20 years he’s booked sessions for numerous Next Big Things; interviewed Noel Gallagher 17 times; and, in 2013, was awarded the prestigious radio gong, the Sony Lifetime Achievement Award.
