Graham is a devoted son of the Black Country. He is an award-winning writer and broadcaster who has over the years carved his own unique niche as an observer of the unusual and the arcane.
A former Chairman of Stourbridge Radio Group Ltd., in 2013 he relocated to the Welsh borders but maintains connections with the Black Country in pursuance of his passions as a waterways specialist with an interest in the industries they served, especially local glass.
He was invested with an MBE for services to inland waterways in 2001 and in 2005 was voted by his peers as Inland Waterways Personality of the Year. Graham is recognised in his former home town with inclusion on the Living Literature 'Ceiling of Honour' in The Crown Centre, Stourbridge.
In addition to his work with BCR he produces his own independent podcasts and is also ‘the voice of the Black Country’ for West Midlands History.
