I started out as a mobile DJ using a 200Watt disco consul with Garrard sp25 turn tables, but my interest in Radio started from an early age when I first heard Kenny Everett on Radio 1. His zany sense of humour and comic timing were genius and had a profound affect on me which has definately influenced my style of presenting. During my varied career I gained a lot of experience at the BBC then went on to work with Jounglers comedy clubs helping to create the careers of many household names we familiar with today and have been fortunate to travel the world suppling major hotels, venues and cruiseships with top quality artists through my successful entertainment agency. I am humbled by the many great people I have had the pleasure to work with and interview along the way, a highlight being Bill Clinton on board Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 cruiseliner. But creating D-LUX Radio has become my passion and I hope, will be my greatest achievement to date.
But what makes me happiest is being at home in Kent with my partner, Annabel and our dog, Teddy. I record all my shows from our beachfront home with a beautiful view of the English Channel.
I think you can tell I love my radio… and in the words of Kenny Everett ‘I prefer Radio to Television…because the pictures are better!’
