My life-long interest in radio started with the offshore pirate stations in the 1960s when I was in my early teens.
I was fascinated by their innovative station formats not heard in the UK before and the sung jingles that went with them. I soon began my own amateur station, unofficial of course!
In the 1970s I did shows for some land-based pirate stations and did presenting on my local hospital radio station.
Ever since I have been an avid radio listener and have continued, as a hobby, to maintain an interest in radio production. So for me it’s a privilege to be invited to join the team at Solid Gold GEM AM!
