Bill Brewster

Chinwag was delighted to welcome another ‘without whom…’ guest.  If you love music and you love talking about music, Bill Brewster was a must.

How could we possibly begin to describe Bill? Best-selling co-author of the critically acclaimed ‘Last Night a DJ saved My Life’ – arguably the definitive history of DJing- as well as a slate of other titles, Bill’s knowledge and passion for musical and its socio-cultural-historical backdrop is unquestionable.

Born and bred in Grimsby, he experienced his musical epiphany at The Warehouse in 1980, listening to Ian Dewhirst and from then on the die was cast for a lifelong adventure into and inside of his love affair with music.

Bill is a writer, DJ, record collector, music lover, family man and Grimsby Town supporter. We talked the outer limits of his passion for music and the amazing journey he’s lived.

We absolutely LOVE Bill’s DJ History podcast…always full of goodness.
