Rod started DJ'ing way back in the 70's travelling around Yorkshire in an old GPO transit van. His first venture into radio was with Smooth FM 7 years ago with a weekly show " Step Back In Time". This quickly became 2 shows a week when he started presenting a Motown show. In partnership with Mark Deakin he took over Smooth FM and was at the helm for nearly 3 years presenting the Breakfast Show. Rod is back at Smooth FM presenting Sunday Love Songs from 8am till 10am.

During this time, I managed a couple of bands, one of which supported the Jam, before becoming a club DJ both in the UK and internationally.
In 1984, I organised the first Band aid appeal in the country and thanks to Mr Geldoff, was the first to show the "Do they know it's Christmas" video, even beating Top of the Pops.

A south east London boy, born and bred, and a Milwall fan obviously. I went to Forest Hills boys school where i had my first encounter with radio.
I joined the radio club where we made "mini shows" and presented to the school. The main claim to fame was at 15yrs old we got to present on Capital Radio. I've had a varied career since then but notably owning my own estate agency and finally my own pub. I would call myself an estate agent if pressed.
The pub was a live music venue which we had for 5 yrs, it rekindled my love of music. Now living in Spain i am delighted to be allowed to play with the knobs at Smooth FM.
Its like starting over at 15, a kid in a sweetie shop

Born into a world of music and musicians in the days of the old ‘steam radio’ we had no television only the radio which brought the world into our houses and lives. Music was then a first love, even on the BBC light service; however when I could get a good signal ‘Radio Luxemburg’ was the station to listen to.
I missed out on the Pirate Radio era as I was wandering around in deep jungle many miles from here, the nearest we got to ‘pop music’ was the forces radio station in Singapore. I did not however everlose my love for music, and in later life I actually got to present music over the airwaves in the Americas’ in a little state called New York, oh no, not the City, but the state. We actually transmitted from Buffalo which to be honest is the other side ofthe country, but still in ‘New York State’.
Many years have passed, much water has flowed. Long story, but from those early days and with a good grounding in radio I have kept myself busy in the business and industry that we all know as Radio.Although never a seeker of fame, I have appeared with many of the top names in music and radio over those years and had a name as being a very reliable and versatile presenter and MC. Illness has caused me to pack in a few times, but once in the blood, it can never be removed, and so I hope to remain, if not at the top of the tree, somewhere within the branches on Smooth FM.

I first got the radio bug when I was at school and I used to put two ancient hi-fi systems together and record my own shows
on a flat deck tape player (thankfully these tapes no longer exist).
Many years later at college in 1991, I worked on a charity station called Radio Cracker and knew this is what I wanted to do,
however with other things taking off I never really found the opportunity to pursue this until 2010
when a visit to the studios of Skyline Radio in Southampton reignited my enthusiasm for radio.

Born and raised in Liverpool Stan ran mobile discos through the 60´s through until 80´s.

A Scot from Edinburgh but at university in Glasgow, I embarked on my radio career at Radio Clyde in the Newsroom. But I found the attraction of teaching Spanish, Russian, Portuguese and French was too strong to resist.

In 1985 I moved abroad (to England!) and managed to own a restaurant while teaching part-time. It was then I had a regular Sunday Nostalgia programme on Yorkshire Dales Radio, then on the internet and after I finally retired from teaching, I found myself doing a daily breakfast show on a community radio station in Yorkshire.
