Brian Dobson

You can hear Brian on a Tuesday evening from 7pm to 9pm with ‘This Week In Music‘ when he looks at the stories behind the songs, this week across seven decades.  He plays an incredible range of music genres including some well known hits and some less well known songs by the most famous and sometimes not so famous names in composing, performing and recording.

Brian presents the Afternoon show on Wednesdays – a mix of news, music and guests. If that’s not enough, he also gets out his decks and dons his alter ego of DJ Dobbo on a Friday evening, playing a two hour Friday Megamix from his Music Factory studio.

Brian has been a DJ for many years and broadcast on Hospital Radio back in the late 70s. He pretended to be a disc jockey as a teenager when he cannibalised the family record player along with another and made them into twin decks – much to the annoyance of his parents! He always wanted to get into ‘proper radio’ and joined Black Cat 107, as it was then, just before the before the FM launch in April 2017 and became Operations Director in October 2018.
