I have lived in Holme On Spalding Moor since 1985 and lived in Market Weighton between 1980 and 1985. I have an eclectic CV - serving my time at the Civil Engineering College, I worked for a JCB dealership for 14 years before turning my hand to spare part sales for a Land Rover Dealer, followed by spray-painting agricultural implements. Deciding I had enough of getting dirty for a living, I taught IT training courses for a subsidiary of Lincoln University. I am now now manage a training programme for four training centres in the north of England – Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester and Newcastle.
I joined Vixen 87 in January 2005, initially to re-write the website. In May 2005 I was dragged in to co-present the Sunday Morning show, hosted by Gary “Gunner Sugden” Newbould, before being trained and offered my own shows on the subsequent RSLs, where I presented the Late Night Extra shows on Mondays and Wednesdays 9pm – Midnight, as well as keeping up the Sunday morning co-host slot.
With the advent of Vixen 101, I became Director of IT for the parent company, Vixen Broadcasting Ltd. I present The Fox’s Den, Fridays 9pm – midnight; a show in which features local and unsigned/independent musicians and bands, both recorded and live in the studio, and also give you the run down on up and coming gigs in the area. I also present the Sunday 12 – 2pm show on alternate Sundays.
Away from working the day job and Vixen 101, my other interests include growing edible stuff on my allotment, keeping chickens and eating their eggs. My other claim to fame is that I am the finest Tea Chest Bass player in the West of the Wolds.
