Today's guest is Brian Hawkins.
In painting his pen portrait at the start of the episode Brian recounts a story of being described recently as "disruptive" and the fact that this pleased him because "there cannot be change without disruption and my life has been about change”.
As we go through his choices and stories it’s clear that he has a point! As well as being a husband and father to two daughters, living in Scotland, London and Cyprus and travelling the world, Brian has had five distinct careers spanning Theatre Producer, Trainer, Sales Coach, Accountancy Nerd, and since 2010, a celebrant of the Humanist Society of Scotland.
It's no surprise that Brian has a raft of great stories, matched by one of the most wide-ranging sets of song choices we have had on Music Talks.
If you are a lover of not just music, but of life, this episode is for you!
Brian's song choices are:
50's Chris Barber Climax Rag (Live)
