MEDIA

LINKS to 41 informative articles about/interviews with Jeff Duff in the papers, on the radio or the box, as available on the web.

  • This is well shy of a comprehensive listing — it is limited to articles available on the web.
  • Specifically excluded are articles without a novel quote from Duff or journalist's observation; articles that only write-up a media release, advertise an upcoming gig, or just offer a photo.
  • For actual Duff performances on TV/radio available on the web (youtube, vimeo), see here.
  • Work in progress, as regards the actual items, and display: a basic tabling of database output, but including links (in the first column), is used for now.
