Tributes paid to Julian Piper
All of us at Phonic were saddened to hear of the tragic death of Julian Piper. Well known as a long time Blues fanatic, and leader of local band legends “Junkyard Angels”.
Julian leaves behind a legacy as band leader, blues promoter and solo performer, as well as a recorded legacy that stretches from Exeter to the Deep South of America.
Julian was also the long-time presenter of one of Phonic FM’s blues shows, “Driving South”, which he hosted for five years to great acclaim. The show showcased the widest possible range of blues and blues related music. He was also a sometime Director of the station bringing to post his unique sense of dry humour and a hard work ethic. He will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with his Family and many friends and associates.
