About a Breathe of Fresh Air
So glad you’ve stopped by. Thank you. I’m Sandy Kaye and like most people, I’m really into the music I grew up with – the soundtrack of my own life.
It’s the music of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s that takes me back. The Blues and R&B speak to my soul. My taste is a little eclectic and I try to feature the tunes that really move me in some way or another.
As a journalist with a long history in both radio and television in Australia, I also love a good story. As such, I always aim to combine a terrific story with some awesome music. I really want you to be both entertained and to learn something new every time you tune in.
A Breath of Fresh Air is my passion project. I wake up with it and go to sleep at night with it. I research, produce and present relentlessly and spend a good deal of time tracking down the people who make the music. It makes me very happy to share their stories and their lives with you. I love to hear where they’ve come from, how they became successful, what lies behind the music and what they’re up to today. I really hope you do too.
ABOFA began as a covid project. It’s now a national weekly, hour-long show that’s broadcast on radio stations right across Australia as well through several stations internationally. I’m so grateful to you for tuning in and really encourage you, if you have any comments or suggestions, to get in touch with me.
A wise man once told me that if you can find a way to do what you love, you will love your work. He was right.
I hope you enjoy A Breath of Fresh Air as much as I love creating it for you.
