I got involved in the world of radio by accident: A friend of mine was a presenter on Radio Wexham way back in 1976 and kindly volunteered my services to repair their collapsing record rack (I’m a joiner by trade). Having done that, they persuaded me to help build a new studio complex as they had to relocate shortly - that became two studios, reception area and a library. Some 40 years later I was still there: I’d become a presenter with them and also held the posts of Station Manager for 3 years and Chairman for a further 16 years.

I have quite an eclectic taste in music although I tend to favour the 50s, 60s & 70s as my favourite decades - Elvis Presley & Creedence Clearwater Revival will probably pop up on a regular basis.

I’m also into aviation (ok, I’m an avgeek) and photography. It's not unusual to find me standing in a field near the end of a runway with some like minded folk pointing cameras at aircraft.

Internet radio is a new step for me and I’m looking forward to whatever challenges it brings. Many thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope you enjoy taking a trip down “Memory Lane” with me, where I’ll be playing a variety of music from the 50s, 60s & 70s on Thursdays between 8-10pm (UK time). I look forward to your company.
