My first venture into radio was via Hospital Radio in both York and Goole.
I was involved in the launch of Vixen 87 back in May 2003 and was proud to present the Breakfast Show for several of the many RSLs that Vixen 87 broadcast before getting a full time licence.
In addition to the Breakfast Show, Night Owls would have heard me on Vixen 87 at midnight with three late night shows. Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday mornings with each of the three nights featuring a different decade, either 60’s,70’s or 80’s. Three great decades of music.
On the 10th of January 2009, Vixen 101 was launched after getting its official Ofcom licence and is now an integral part of the community for Market Weighton, Pocklington and the surrounding villages in the West of the Wolds in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
I presented a regular Sunday morning show on Vixen101 and continued to do so until moving on the pastures new. In the following years I broadcast on several other community radio stations in places as far afield as Rotherham, Wetherby, Doncaster and Thorne.
Now the wheel has turned full circle and I am back on Vixen 101 on Saturday mornings and alternate Sunday lunchtimes, and all I can say is “It’s Good To Be Back”.
