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.

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.
