Having failed to get the part of The Master in the new Dr Who (perhaps due to neglecting to apply), John has instead created his show Tuning Up. He has been broadcasting in his adopted home of Manchester for a number of years and has, since the 1980s, been part of the underground music scene there and beyond: Performing live and hosting visiting bands gigs, in addition to writing for Florida-based Rock At Night website and the occasional piece elsewhere. Tuning Up comes in from the cold, it's coat pockets bulging, stuffed with succulent eclectic choice cuts of independent, neglected, new and not so new non-mainstream sound.
