Radio Work

Radio Work

I am an experienced radio presenter and producer, having worked with a number of radio stations in the UK and Ireland.

Below I have compiled some clips from these shows, partially to give some idea of the variety of projects I have been involved in, but mostly to cause extreme embarassment at a future date.

For those wondering how I speak, I grew up in a small town deep within southern England, where we sound extremely posh with a small hint of farmer-y ("ooh-argh"). Having spent a lot of time in a large city ("innit") and in northern England ("ey-up"), the worst of the posh-ness has now evaporated, but it doesn't take too much to bring it back. You could probably date each of these clips based on how long my vowels are.


I presented the breakfast show for several years on Southampton's 103.9 Voice FM. Some links are included below.

Traffic bulletin

Although I am at my happiest engaging in conversation, I am more than familiar with serious features. This traffic bulletin was recorded for AA Roadwatch.


I do enjoy the co-presenter experience, especially when paired with a more experienced presenter I can learn from. I take the role seriously, considering when it is best to keep quiet and let the presenter make their point, and when it is best to interrupt and play the role of an irritant.

I take a number of approaches depending on the time and style of the show, and whether I'm intending to provoke a response from the audience and/or the presenter or not.

I'm not going to upload shows I've produced as it would just be hours of calls being put through to the talk show and other shows. However, below is one edition of the Breakfast Show on Classic Hits 4FM, where I produced the features, managed the social media and put calls through to air.

Tedious about the author bit

I write about media, exploring, heavy machinery and lists. I produce radio with an attitude accurately described as "amusingly surly".

I can't tell you how many terrible ideas I have had. But it's a lot of terrible ideas.

PS. I am not a travel blogger. But I do travel and I do blog.

Legally bland

Any similarities with real-life events or wealthy international firms is probably coincidental. No products endorsed. I'm powered by Monster Munch.
