Geoff started his career at the age of 13 and within five years was one of the Mecca Group’s top DJs, being used as their opening act for their new venues nationwide.
During the ’60s when package tours were at the height of their popularity, Geoff could be found compeering shows with Animals, Kinks, Spencer Davis, Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry, and MC’d for the second-ever Led Zeppelin show.
Come the late ’60s, Geoff was on the radio with the BBC Radio and in 1974 became one of Radio Hallam’s first voices when the station launched, being the new commercial station for Sheffield. In the ’70s, Geoff also worked on Q102 in Florida, USA and KZUN in Dallas. In the ’80s, you’d have heard him on the legendary pirate radio station, Sunshine Radio.
Geoff is now working on a number of specialist radio shows and can currently be heard on a number of stations in the UK, with special mention of his work with Express FM who carry the twice-award-winning Soft Rock Show. This live show has reached a cult status and Geoff has interviewed over 1425 artists over the last few years, including Sir Cliff Richard, Genesis, Status Quo, Blondie, The Searchers, Slade, Toto, Rick Astley, Foreigner and Jethro Tull… and that’s just the start of the list! The show has carried a unique live link with Mix 94.1 in Las Vegas in the past, and now each month features a live link to The Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas for all the hottest entertainment news from Sin City! The show continues to draw huge names to be interviewed both live on the telephone and in the studio.
Geoff also works for Forest FM, presenting a Soul and R&B show on Saturday in addition to All Our Yesterplays each weekday morning. He has also completed the Route to Radio broadcasting course, with credits. He now also records three unique shows – Solid Gold ’60s, Supersonic ’70s and Kick Up the ’80s… all three of which are currently syndicated to eighty-eight radio stations in seventeen countries across the world. Of note, in 2013 and 2014 Geoff received the prestigious GEO Award in Chicago for ‘Outstanding Contributing Programme’ for his Solid Gold ‘60s show.
As of January 2014, Geoff’s collection of shows became WBUS in Arizona’s top ranked shows, bringing Geoff to their Number 1 position with the highest listener base. With his shows being aired every single day on the station, they had one thing to add when they told him… “YOU ROCK!”.
