Tell Us A Little About Yourself?

I am a father of two (delightful) children.  I am a Yorkshire lad and support Leeds United (football) and Keighley Cougars (rugby league).  That’s pronounced ‘Keith-Ley’ by we locals and not as the media usually pronounce it – Kee Lee!

What Kind Of Music Do You Like?

It depends on my mood when listening!  Radio Lonsdale does not have set playlists and we are free to play a massive range of musical genres, that is the beauty of hospital radio volunteering!  I currently present a contemporary chart show so I need to keep bang up to date with the present music scene.

What Got You Interested In Radio Lonsdale?

I wanted to give something back to the local Community plus I am a radio fan, having presented my own internet radio show for a number of years.

I have held a number of Committee positions over the years but this year decided to stand for a general committee position so that I can support other named members with their workload.  For example I have a good knowledge of IT & media streaming so I aim to work alongside Pete Chesher our Chief Engineer to improve both the studios and our outside broadcasting systems!
