How did you get into radio?
At the age of 13, I started as a mobile DJ and hired my equipment from a company that operated road shows for radio stations at 15 I worked voluntarily for the company. I made demo tape after demo tape and a number of years on I got a break thanks to a crazy programme controller that probably lived to regret it.
What do you love about City Beat
City Beat reminds me so much of how radio used to be! That’s a massive positive… not because its old fashioned because its certainly not, quite the contrary. As an individual operator It’s able to stand out from the competition, having an edge with the music it can play and an element of freedom on what presenters can say. I reckon City Beat makes radio fun to listen too again and fun to produce.
