Presenter / Vice Chair
Shows: The Breakfast Show; Totally 80s; The Round Up; Sunday Funday
Music: 80s kid through and through, love strange remixes of old songs (like the Von Trapp remix of can “I kick it?” by A Tribe Called Quest). Also love finding new local artists and finding ways of supporting them.

Music: Practically anything guitar-led: blues, rock, metal, folk. Hardcore fan of David Gilmour, Richard Thompson, Steve Rothery and Adrian Smith. Fond of the dramatic. Desperately missing live gigs!
Presenter / Record Librarian
Shows: Backspin; Monday Request Show; Radio Marsden’s Greatest Hits
Music: My tastes are many and varied with a particular liking for the Beatles, the Kinks, the Eagles, Steely Dan and Tamla Motown.
Music: Coming from a showbiz background has given me a deep passion for all things stage, screen and musical, as well as spotting a great melody, from pop to opera. Also love bringing the backstage fun of all the ‘glitz & glamour’ of Showtime to our keen listeners.
