Like many, I got into radio by starting on hospital radio, in Birmingham (I think we were powered by steam back then!). Vinyl only, we were based in a static caravan outside the nurses’ home and I think we counted the number of listeners on one hand most of the time. 

I’ve worked all over South Yorkshire and I was at school in the same class as Martin Fry, lead singer of South Yorks 80s band ABC (yes, I know that dates me!).

I’m a qualified pilot, having obtained my private pilot’s licence in 2012.
