Presenter Biographies:

Kev 'Legs' Walker

Kev is a seasoned Cat presenter, and has a broad knowledge of music. He has played bass in various bands through the years, and has many an anecdote to share. Kev is our expert on the more modern blues styles.
Though it is oft talked about, apparently Kev would like the listeners to believe that he doesn't actually eat bugs, but there is one on the homepage in case he gets peckish. Kev came to the show with a blues name already!
