TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF: I am a recycled teenager who started with hospital radio in 2010 after suffering a stroke a few years earlier, I have been involved with music for most of my life having played the trumpet and guitar for many years, as well as running a mobile disco in the 70's. 

WHAT IS YOUR SHOW ABOUT? My show goes out twice a week, Wednesdays show is a bit of everything covering requests and all the hits and misses from the last 60 years. Fridays show is totally 1960's, each week covering a different top 20 from any timein the decade. Both include requests, dedications and quizzes. There's also a little theme tune quiz throne in just to keep the listener on the ball,  some Wednesday shows are based on a theme that links everything together
 

FAVOURITE GROUP:
I don't have a particular favorite, but any tracks that you can understand the words or an instrumental track will suffice.

WHAT CHR MEANS TO ME:
CHR is a way that I can be involved with a good team of people who are all after the same goal, and that is to make sure that the patients in the hospital are kept entertained and occupied while they are in the hospital, also to me it is a way of repaying a bit of what I have received from the hospital.

A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY: Born and bred in Coventry many years ago, I was educated at President Kennedy School. During the 70's I was a weekend Dj at The Alhambra in the city centre, unfortunately due to progress this venue is no longer there, it used to stand behind Sainsbury's where today you can find BBC CWR , I am happily married with 3 grown up children and 6 grandchildren to keep me occupied.
