Having lived in various parts of the UK and abroad, Mancunian Graham settled here in Harrogate in 1997 and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. Music has always been a big part of Graham’s life, starting to build a collection of 45 rpm singles from the age of 11 and avidly following the UK singles charts. Graham still checks out the Official Chart site every Friday to see what’s happening. He is a keen tennis player and a lover of languages, speaking Italian and Russian, a bit of German, having lived in West Berlin for six years and a smattering of French, Spanish and Polish. Graham loves to go to the cinema, especially to catch the latest action/sci-fi blockbuster and he is a big fan of reading crime thriller novels.
