My guest in this episode is Giorgos Gavriil who generously allowed me to use his English name of ‘George’ through our chat.
Born in 1975 in the port city of Piraeus in Greater Athens, George continues to live in Greece but has moved to the mountains from the sea where he lives with wife and his two young children.
He was a late bloomer in terms of music but when things clicked in his late teens there was no looking back. He describes himself as ‘compulsive’ and ‘obsessive’ and this has driven a lifelong passion that’s produced a deep love and an encyclopaedic knowledge of popular music. In recent years those same characteristics have driven his learning to play guitar which he impressively practices an hour a day!
George was good enough to provide me with his list of 101 Favourite Albums and it makes for fascinating reading. We tale about some of those albums during the episode but if anyone would like to see the full list, please email me at email@example.com
There is a strong theme of passion and emotion that runs through all of George’s song selections and it’s a list I really love. His song selections were:
70’s Mind Power James Brown
80’s Tango Till They’re Sore Tom Waits
90’s Love You Should’ve Come Over Jeff Buckley
00’s A Thousand Kisses Deep Leonard Cohen
10’s Conversation 16 The National
20’s Love Is The Main Thing Fontaines D.C.
