Colin Bertram


I am currently living in Lancaster with my wife and our cat Rosie. I have just published a book about some of the rock concerts I went to between 1981 and 1999 in the UK.

Up until March this year I was a volunteer presenter on Diversity 103.5FM but sadly the station was shut down. So now I am broadcasting on the internet station Acoustic Spectrum and I upload the shows to Mixcloud - see the links on my web site.

I'm also a musician and have got some songs on Soundcloud. They're mainly covers but there are a few original compositions too.

Recollections from a selection of concerts the author went to in the UK during the 1980s and 90s. Ranging from big names like Queen and ZZ Top to less well known bands such as Stump and Urge Overkill, the book describes events that made the gigs memorable such as a fire alarm going off during a gig, a guitarist performing an encore naked and a singer pushing a drunken fan off the stage.
