Steve Lamacq is an English disc jockey, currently working with the BBC radio stations Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music.

Steve celebrates 30 years in the music industry with this new, intimate one man-show of anecdotes and observations, clocked up over three decades of championing new music. Since swapping his fanzine for a job at the NME, the music obsessive has seen more than 5,000 gigs and banged on endlessly about music he’s found. But Going Deaf For A Living isn’t just his story; it’s a fond exploration of the life of all music fans from the first record you buy to the best gig you’ve ever seen.

Expect frontline stories from his NME days (inc. interviewing Nirvana in a Shepherds Bush B&B) and about life at Radio 1 and BBC 6Music, where, over 20 years he’s booked sessions for numerous Next Big Things; interviewed Noel Gallagher 17 times; and, in 2013, was awarded the prestigious radio gong, the Sony Lifetime Achievement Award.
