How did you get into radio?

I first got into radio back in 2001 on the flag market within Preston for a community 4 week licence. This was a great part of my life, as from when I was at school I always wanted to be on radio and have my own show.

What do you love about City Beat?

City Beat is a great station and a great way to push forward! I have my own show on City Beat on a Saturday and totally love the 2 hours I do. City Beat is a growing station and I love it because it’s NEW and fresh with a twist of community within it.

What do you love about Preston City 

To be totally honest I am not sure why I love Preston. I think with Preston being a New city and a growing city and the fact I have lived here for most of my life is probably the reason I love it.

 What show do you present?

I present the Music Mayhem Show on a Saturday 10 till 12 – Giving you a great mixture of music from the 90s and features to make you listen that involve not only the community of Preston but the whole world.

If you could have any band, or musician perform live on your show, who would you pick and why?

If I could have anyone on my show I think it would be Craig David, an absolute legend from the 90s with garage vibes. He if I am honest is my legend of the 90s.

 What do you get up to when you’re not entertaining City Beat listeners?

I am at this time building up my own business and working as a dj at the weekends for functions. I like to spend time with my family and love taking them out on trips etc. I also like to spend time making new mixes for myself and posting them on sound cloud.
