KEVIN WALKER AND FRANK TOOHEY DISCUSS GREAT NEW ALBUM

KEV WALKER, JACQUI JAMES AND FRANK TOOHEY
 

Another morning of music and interesting chat with presenter of Basildon Hospital Radio Frank Toohey in the BHR1287 studio yesterday.  Delighted to meet the musician Kevin Walker prior to the release of his third album, which is rather special.

 

The album "Biding My Time" was created following the death of Kev's wife from cancer.  Following the turmoil of this difficult time, Kev decided that he wanted to help raise funds for the superb cancer teams who had supported him and his family.  With the aid of his musician friends he has written the lyrics and music to all of the tracks on the album with proceeds going to Macmillan Nurses in Essex and Cancer Research.


He also spoke to listeners about his early life which was church orientated, leading to playing guitar to Gospel tracks along with Vince Clarke, who later left the church and formed the band Depeche Mode. Kev is a carpenter by trade and runs his own business, alongside his work with these vital charities.
