Steve Goes To The Phoenix Festival 1995.
I was recording a Video Promo with Eusebe at my then publishers house Dave A. Stewart (Eurythmics) in Central London for The Box Music Television and the Director took a shine to my spontaneous, unpredictable comedic energy and offered me a series of music shows based on going to Music Festivals and awards Interviewing artist. I'd never presented in TV before and I jumped at the chance. I did 3 shows 'Steve Goes to The Phoenix, Reading Festival and The NME awards interviewing Artist of the day.

A few years ago, DJ and Clubland Impresario Barrie K Sharpe approached me perform a Song to highlight the death of black people in police custody both her in the UK and in the USA. I happened to have a song that highlights the abuse of the police that I wrote and recorded with EUSEBE titled simply P. O. L. I. C. E. Here is an Acoustic Version of the song with Guitarist Marco Capecelatro.
Choice For Music UK
From 2015 - 2019 I was a Radio Presenter on the New Choice FM (Choice For Music) in London.
A friend of mine suggested that I would be great on the radio. In my illustrious career in music, it was the one area that I had not worked in. I grew up on sound systems and listening to pirate radio in the 80's and as a youth me and my sound system friends somehow got a radio transmitter made and delivered a music show to Kilburn and the NW of London. I was familiar with the idea. Role on 3 decades later and being a fan of the original Choice FM, I jumped at the chance to be involved in the reincarnation.
I was wary of the fact that I was not a DJ but a Musician and Singer/Songwriter that loves music and I created 'The Steve Maxamillian Eusebe Show - My History is Your History' to highlight that. The Show was filled with Black Music that I listened to growing up, music that I danced, Music that I cried to and of course music that made me want to sing.
For 2 hours every Sunday I sang LiVE in, out and over the records whilst sometimes mixing at the same time. I blended my vocals in with each track and artist played and the show went out LiVE on Facebook and occasionally Youtube. It was this LiVE element of the show that captivated me. As an Artist I was use to playing in front of an audience and I wanted to present a 'Face for Radio' and it proved successful as my audience interacted with me and what they saw and heard.
It was a creatively wonderful and innovative period for me where I put together all my ads, music and promotion for the show. I hope to bring 'The Steve Maxamillian Eusebe Show' back as a Podcast someday. Here is a Link to my Mixcloud Radio Shows.
S'Me Radio Adverts with Music
Being creatively driven and using the array of video and photographic apps available, I began creating my own radio adverts for my show. I also created all the music in the ads.
Nobody represents you better than you. Here are some of my favourite ads.

Do The Mic🎙Thing and The Harrow Club have been working with Serial Entrepreneur and Successful Businessman Laurence Saffer to create The Dragon's Lair, a competition for young people to find the best business idea.
We recently visited Newman Catholic College and their Year Business Students where Laurence got to speak to the students about how he started in business, giving business advice and of course inviting the students to come and pitch their business ideas at the next Dragon's Lair event at The Harrow Club.
