Muzzle the dog, put the tea on hold and fasten the windows because it's about to get LOUD.
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.
Having lived “Down South” for most of my life, my roots are still firmly entrenched in the North East of England, among the beautiful countryside of the Durham and Yorkshire Dales.Life has taken me many places, bringing me into radio at a pretty late stage in my life, however I enjoy it enormously, sharing my love of music with my audience and chatting about anything that comes into my head.
I used to help run a small radio station in the UK, following the closure of our station I went on to develop a radio programme syndication service with my partner in addition to jointly producing and presenting a popular radio show which was broadcast to approx 60 countries Worldwide. Personally I have been producing and presenting radio programmes for several years now.

Smooth FM’s soothing voice belongs to new recruit Laura. Laura’s interests include her family, of course, music, shopping (also ‘of course’)! Her musical taste is for the quieter sounds - so she’s a perfect choice for The Relaxation Hour on Sundays from 8 – 9 pm, with singers and groups we have loved over the years, plus some modern artistes – but all under the umbrella of gentler sounds.
Mike made his radio debut in 1992, and back then you had to choose between East 17 or Take That. As all the girls liked the latter, Mike went on-air for the very first time dressed in big baggy jeans, a checked shirt, chunky gold earrings and a baseball cap. Yes, he knows this was a mistake now. Since then, Mike has continued to make fashion mistakes, and present on the radio. He also decided to come out of the studio to DJ in pubs and clubs, hosting everything from student nights to specialist music events, most of this was done in flowery shirts! To cut a long story short, he became a pub landlord, but realised it wasn't for him as he had to dress smart, and so he's back behind the mic wearing what the hell he likes!
Les has been a professional DJ since 1979 and was one of the first DJ’s in the UK to adopt the American “beat matching” (BPM) form of mixing. He was taught to mix by American DJ Greg James who was an understudy of Ritchie Kaczor, the resident spinner at New York's legendary nightclub “Studio 54”
Les’ mixing skills on the turntables and musical knowledge led to him working in top London nightclubs and in 1980 he secured a job as the resident DJ at London’s premiere nightclub “Regines”. He was also invited to play in their New York and Paris Venues.
Paul Breen-Turner….or “PBT” as he is known to his mates (or people who can’t be bothered to spend the 20 minutes it takes to say his name) has broadcast for more than 17 years.
Early years were spent between his mums home town of Cape Town, and then it was off for some serious sheep shearing in Mid Wales!
Sean started his DJ-ing career aged 13, back in the early 1980s, at his local Hessle Youth Club, before moving into the mobile disco market, then working as a residential club and bar DJ around the world. During this time he also co-owned a DJ and ‘security’ agency supplying staff to Club 18 to 30 venues across Europe.
Today, as well as writing and producing effective and ‘ear’-catching radio and TV commercials, Sean (who also once trained to be a stunt performer) is a member of the actors union, Equity, and has made numerous appearances in British TV programmes including (amongst others) Emmerdale, Heartbeat and The Royal.
I've been working in radio since I was little! Well I still am little. I was 17 when I started playing records on the radio in Germany. Since then, my voice has been heard on Star Radio in Weston super Mare, BCR FM in Bridgwater, Quaywest FM in Bridgwater and West Somerset, a few stations around the Midlands, and recently North Devon's The Voice.
My name is Ray Peters.
I first started spinning the discs around 40 years ago at my local youth club (those were the days). I then progressed to mobile discos in and around west Yorkshire . I also had a spell on Batley hospital radio. Still doing mobile, I started my own office furniture business and due to lack of time I had to stop doing the hospital radio. After having a very successful business for 17 years I then sold up and moved to Spain's Costa Blanca where I was very fortunate in resurrecting my radio career on a local station called Smile fm doing the drive time show mon-fri 4pm till 7pm.
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.
