Speaking at The Space

For anyone in the Brighton area, I'll be interviewed at The Space event on February 6th. Here's the information:

The SPACE (Southern Performance and Creative Energies), Brighton’s popular media and arts networking event, brings together the creative community, with special guest interviews. It is a great place for making contacts and connections, so, ideally, work can be made.
SPECIAL GUESTS – a great line up, from broadcasting and literature.

His first book, the acclaimed Nick Drake biography, "Darker Than The Deepest Sea" was published in 2006. Trevor presents an album show on Classic Gold and produces programmes for BBC Radio 2. He was previously Head of BBC Music Entertainment, responsible for Radio 1, Radio 2, Top of the Pops and Later with Jools Holland.
