Geoff Dorsett

Geoff's wealth of musical knowledge from the 60's, 70's, 80's & 90's is crammed into two hours of music heaven!

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 venue's nationwide. During the '60s when package tours were at the height of their popularity, Geoff could be found compering 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 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's presenting didn't go unnoticed in the USA where he was 4 times award winner for his shows 'Solid Gold Sixties' and 'Supersonic 70's', and he also received the Global SOLA Award for his show 'Kick-up the 80's.

Geoff is now working on a number of specialist radio shows and can currently be heard on a number of stations in the UK. Geoff has interviewed over 2,100 artists over the last 10 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!
