Being on the radio was always a boyhood dream for me. After getting involved with my local hospital station, FAB (Friends At your Bedside- see what they did there!) by my early 20s I'd landed a job on Radio Top Shop, playing records from a perspex bubble suspended from the ceiling of Manchester's Arndale Centre.
Never quite getting over the vertigo, I made my way down and went on to work on a range of stations far and wide - from Shropshire to Sheffield, and from Leeds to Londonderry in Northern Ireland. I even got to plan and launch a new station for Rugby in Warwickshire back in 2002.
It's a privilege and honour to continue doing what I love for a living after 30 years. Proud to be back up north too, on the edge of what I consider to be one of the most beautiful parts of the country where I live with my partner Julie and our little dog Tilly.
