Ken Raphael

Before Ken joined the Fine Music family and got behind the desk (for reception), he was up on the Bench (legally speaking), and the desk is more comfortable. His great regret was not learning an instrument; so listening to music is a fulfilling substitute.

He enjoys concerts but not recitals, modern jazz but not late Coltrane, walking not running, art but not the Archibald, food and films and travel and talk. Ken is a member of the reception team, has been writing for the jazz crew for the Fine Music Magazine on post-swing big bands, and is now presenting Swing and Beyond.
