How Different Can It Be?










Born in Derby, England. Moved to Kiwoko, Uganda at 6 years old and lived there for 12 years. Now in Palmerston North and keen to share what I've seen. My name is Joel Brown and trust me when I say that you are in for a treat when you tune into HDCIB. You and I will be chatting about how amazingly different the world is, in the simplest of ways, while being accompanied by only the highest quality music.

UPDATE: 11/08/2019
Hello hello! I hope you enjoy listening to HDCIB! Sadly it is time for my next step and I am now living in the UK. However my Radio Journey is far from over! Check out this Show Reel that I created from the HDCIB Shows.

Feel free to give it a listen and to keep following me on social medias to keep up to date! Thank you so much for listening and I do hope someday to come back and revive HDCIB!

Yours, Joel Brown
