Who is Looking for the Postman?

Looking for the Postman is the creation of me, Grant Robson, a blogging dad of four (Eve, Jenny, Jack and Rachel) and husband of one (Emma).

Not a complete failure

Away from LftP, I am a music producer, amateur chef, wannabe photographer, comp-a-holic and champion beard-grower. I have a high score of 340 on Crossy Road.

As a music producer, I was not a complete failure. I wrote music for New Line Cinema (Antonio Banderas’ Take the Lead) and Electronic Arts Superbike 2000, produced music for three series of MTV Mash and produced music for Activision’s DJ Hero. After remixing The Charlatans, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Foals. I toured with the Charlatans as DJ support – a role I repeated for an Embrace tour.

Under the name McSleazy, I had my own show on XFM, DJ’d across Europe and in the US and became resident DJ for T in the Park’s NME / Radio 1 stage for 13 years.


McSleazy has now retired, but I still produce music and film scores under the name GrantJRobson.

Looking for the Postman

stampsLooking for the Postman initially came about as a result of my addictive interest in online competitions. In entering competitions and keeping statistics on wins, I started making observations which I decided to share in a wordpress blog. Things escalated and people started to read this nonsense.

In discovering that people didn’t completely hate my writing style, I started to write about other subjects related to family life. This began when my daughter, Jenny, was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect shortly before her second birthday. Blogging about the issue was therapeutic and the support received as a result of the posts was helpful.

The blog became a website and now we are here, making observations on things that a dad / husband / chef / photographer / comper / music producer encounters. This has extended into including reviews of products and featured posts. (While I may have been asked to write about a particular product, the content of the posts remain honest and my opinion.)

I still enter competitions and even sometimes wins things. Jenny is well too.
