Hi, I'm Neil, 56 years old and diagnosed with YOPD Parkinson's in 2009. I live with my partner NIna in the Midlands who also has PD and is an accomplished artist. We have a black Labrador dog called Sasha who gets me out and about walking her locally. I write poetry and host a FB group called "The Shakey Poet" where I publish mine and members poems sharing our experiences of life with Parkinson's and on a wide range of other subjects. It was through our mutual interest in poetry. I met DJ Johnny and he invited me to submit my poems and to recite them after listening to his show on RadioParkies. I began helping more by collecting poems for the show and reciting for people who didn't have the confidence to. DJ Johnny encouraged me to try DJ'ing , kindly taking me under his wing, I have an eclectic taste in music that’s predominantly led by classic rock, bands such as Led Zepplin and the Doors. I plan to play lots of genres in music on my show from 60's up to present day hope you can join me.
