||I got my first taste of fame at a very early age when I
was given a bit part in a school play. A few years later I wowed audiences
with my solos as a member of my school's choir. Unfortunately, I soon
found that although I enjoyed performing on stage, it required a certain
visual aesthetic which I just don't have.
So, at the age of 12 I decided
that being heard and not seen was the way to go and started to learn radio
presentation techniques from such luminary personalities as Alan Freeman,
Kenny Everett, Roger Scott and Peter Powell.
My first radio station was
soon open for business broadcasting from my bedroom around the house to
discretely positioned speakers that very cleverly had no off switch! Many
years later I went on to provide upbeat entertainment to the sick and
dying through hospital radio but the thought that my voice might be the
last that someone heard before they popped their socks meant that I was
always looking for slightly less morbid outlets to fulfil my broadcast
In 1992 I joined Radio Caroline for their first RSL (Restricted
Service Licence) broadcast in Dover, England. After making up the numbers
there for a few years, I moved on to become a founding member of The Album
Zone in 1997 where I spent many happy years broadcasting on Calais station
Radio 6, satellite and internet.
Nowadays I'm proud to be part of the
exciting station that is Radio Seagull where the music ethos is quite
refreshing and fits perfectly with my own. What might that be? In a
nutshell; that there is no such thing as bad music and good music - just
music you like and music you don't.
And with that, I bid you good day and
