Sandy Kaye
Hi, I’m Sandy Kaye and like most people, I’m really into the music I grew up with – the soundtrack of my life. I never seemed to grow past what I believe was the heyday of music. Of course, I’m talking about the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s when music exploded and musicians weren’t afraid to try anything. These are the sounds that take me back to my youth. The Blues and R&B speak to my soul. Pop and rock reminds me exactly where I was when I first heard the tunes. Sometimes it was driving in the car, other times it was at school or university and occasionally it was when I had met a boy and we shared a kiss.

As a journalist with a long history in both radio and television here in Australia, I’m also extremely passionate about a good story. So, when I track down some of my favorite artists (check out the episodes tab to see who I have so far) I always try to find musicians with great back stories and ask them to tell me how or why they made their awesome music. I really want you to be both entertained and learn something new each and 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 great deal of time finding the artists you hear. It gives me a great deal of pleasure to share these stories with you. Together we learn about where their music took roots, how they navigated the road to success and what’s happened to them since they were at Number 1. We get in behind the songs and hear them too. It’s fascinating stuff and I think, makes for some easy, fun and super interesting listening.
ABOFA began as a covid project. It’s now a weekly, hour-long show that’s broadcast on radio stations right across the world and it can be heard as a podcast too on all major podcast platforms. Thank you for supporting me and A Breath of Fresh Air.
Please get in touch with feedback, comments or requests. If there’s someone, you’d like to hear interviewed, I’ll do my finest work as a researcher to track them down and bring them onto the show for you. Perhaps you might like to say hello too?
I read a quote the other day “the job is so fantastic; you don’t need a hobby. The hobby is going to work.” That’s me. I adore it.
I hope you enjoy A Breath of Fresh Air as much as I love creating it for you.
