Gordon Cooper Rockmeister
Gordon Cooper Rockmeister shows
Gordon Cooper aka Rockmeister bought his first single in 1969…..”Sugar Sugar” by The Archies! He continued collecting rather a broad cross-section of music until his best friend bought him “Burn” by Deep Purple for his eighteenth birthday!! That was it….he became a life-long “rocker” from then on!
Gordon says “So my first love is ROCK, as is my second & third love, although The Carpenters are my guilty pleasure! Aside from rock, I also love Sixties & Seventies music…..probably because I lived through them lol!”
His love of Radio has been going for more years than he cares to remember, 25+ years with Sunshine Radio on the Isle of Wight & a stint on internet radio with Vectis Radio for eight years.
Rockmeister’s final thought, “If someone had told me in 1969 not to collect the 6000 plus albums I’ve collected over the decades because you’d be able to access them and many more on a mobile phone that fits in the palm of your hand, I’d have never have believed it! Mind you, I did enjoy collecting them!”
