Tommy has been playing music for over 45 years - he still works five nights a week and says he loves the business.

He has spent most of his working years in Barnsley and says he’s proud to have worked with some great professional DJs and entertainers. He’s friends with radio stalwarts like Simon Hirst, Steve White, Mike West and Graham Steventon and says he’s excited by WAB Radio as - he thinks - it’s the future of broadcasting.

Derek Jones Time of shows The Retro Show with Turk and The Captain - Monday, 7pm to 9pm Motown and Disco Show - Sunday, 2pm to 4pm
Derek Jones  
Derek’s first two loves were football and music - he didn’t make it as a professional footballer so became a DJ instead!

He started DJing in school during his lunch breaks to raise money for charities and then got an apprenticeship DJing at Bailey’s in Monk Bretton, working with acts like Showaddywaddy, The Real Thing, Les Dawson, and Cannon and Ball.

In 1987, he joined nightclub Japanese Whispers where he stayed for five years, working with acts like Sinitta, Sonia, Pete Waterman and even Take That in 1991 - he paid them £50 to appear at an under-18 disco night.

For the last twenty years, he’s been at the Burntwood Court Hotel in Brierley. His show is on Mondays from 7-9pm.
Jamie Gorner Time of show Chart Music and Barnsley’s Requests - Tuesday, 7pm to 9pm
Jamie Gorner  
Jamie first started DJing in school way back in the day and has worked in radio since he was just 16 at various stations across the Yorkshire area.

Barnsley born ’n’ bred, he has a major passion for music and hopes to introduce to Barnsley some of the best new music out there, as well as some classics dropped in for good measure!

You can catch Jamie on Tuesdays from 7-9pm where he will be playing a mixture of chart music & Barnsley’s requests.

Katie-Ann Mumby-Cole  
Katie-Ann Mumby-Cole, the newest addition to our line-up, is a big fan of anything vintage and her show - on Thursdays from 6pm until 8pm - reflects that.

The Timewarp is about showing how diverse music has been over the years and showing the change from the 1950s right through to today. Six-and-a-half decades worth of hits await...
