I have been in Radio for over 30 years (crikey, is it REALLY)?? Started on short wave around the world (broadcasting from my garage with egg boxes on the walls to dull the sound). From there I was so happy to be able to join the team at WABC broadcasting from Co Donegal in Ireland.
Returning to England I found GEM AM on my radio dial. I listened to the Station every single day with my two favourite Presenters, Andy Marriott and the late Brian Tansley. I made my demo tape for GEM from the same garage and sent it to the Programme Controller, Len Groat, who liked what he heard and he started my true radio career.
From GEM AM I moved to Signal Radio in Stoke on Trent and from there to BBC Radio Shropshire where I presented the weekday lunchtime Programme. I was at the BEEB for 13 years.
Today, I live in Northern Ireland and run my own bed & breakfast near the Giants Causeway and many Game of Thrones filming locations. Check us out here: www.longviewhouse.co.uk
I treasure my time on the radio so as well as being on GEM’s ‘sister station’ Serenade Radio, you can join me here Monday – Thursday night from 10pm to Midnight for Late Night Love!
