Kevin Murphy hosts Black & White Noise on Reel Rebels Radio

“Born and raised in North London, I got into music at an early age, going to see David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust when I was 13. Later, I was in a number of bands who were spectacularly unsuccessful, despite the fact I wore Sue’s brilliant clothes. After being a music journalist for various publications, including Sounds and Record Mirror, in 1990 I moved to Los Angeles because that’s where the sun is. Since then I’ve continued writing about music and anything else, if it paid. Other things I do for free, including hosting the radio show Black & White Noise, which allows me to subject listeners to my musical taste, good and bad!”.

Black & White Noise is aired on the London-based internet station Reel Rebels Radio (
