This blog site contains a tiny fraction of Oliver’s music and travel writing. At one time or other, he has written for almost all the UK music magazines, plus various national, international and regional newspapers and magazines. He’s been writing since the early seventies but the material here is more recent (i.e. written since the advent of computers).
Oliver’s day job is writing resources for language teaching. More info about this can be found at
