Radiobaby returned to high school after nearly two decades on Friday
to give guitar students a chance to enter the world of the performing
Singer and guitarist Odee Rose has been a guitar tutor at Thames
High School this year. On Friday he brought his band Radiobaby to
school and invited his students up on stage to perform the songs they
had been learning.
“Performing to an audience is an important part of learning an
instrument so I’m quite lucky to be able to give that experience to my
students,” said Mr Rose. “When I was at school my music teacher
organised a lunchtime concert and me and my mates played a Doors song
and our teacher played the keyboard. That experience got me hooked on
performing and I wanted to pass that on to my students.”
Radiobaby played outside the senior common room so the students could
sit on the field and near the cafeteria to see what Mr Rose’s
students had been learning all year.
All three members of Radiobaby are former students of Thames High School.
