Black Cat Radio

Everything you need to know, and the world's greatest music

Current track




I believe for anyone following and enjoying music it is a personal journey and we all take a different route. To label a song that you hear as rubbish really means it’s not for you. Someone wrote it someone recorded it and someone bought it, therefore it cannot be rubbish. Back in 1968, I like […]

Since having my first radio next to my bed aged 10, and being able to randomly tune into various voices and sounds and countries and towns, I’ve loved radio and in turn much of the music it introduced me to. Getting a chance to be part of a very small (possibly pirate, I couldn’t say) […]

I’ve always wanted to ‘do’ radio. Back in 1990 (ish), in my first few weeks at Leeds Uni, I went into St Jimmys to enquire about hospital radio. I had a meeting but then a potent combination of female students, subsidised drinking and gig-going (plus the odd lecture) meant that nothing ever came of it. […]

From presenting my own show ‘A&E’ (Anything & Everything) at Brighton Hospital Radio back in my roaring twenties, to now presenting my own show on Black Cat Radio, I hope to share with you my passion for food, farming, family, music and everything in between.  I graduated in BA(Hons) in music and proceeded to be […]

Radio has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember

The Pirates, Radio London, Radio Caroline and Radio England all sparked my interest as a young lad. I spent many hours in my bedroom with a big old wooden-cased valve radio which had a tuning needle that would scroll across a dial telling of such exciting and exotic far off places as Hilversum, Athlone and Luxembourg. Apart […]

I was one of the few UK DJs to be on the Motown freebies list, and worked in the California Ballroom in Dunstable on Friday and Saturday nights as well as their nightclub The Devil’s  Den/Didoz where I found my love of soul music. As one of the stalwarts of the Cali in the early […]

If you are thinking you recognise those dulcet tones or maybe that face is familiar, it’s because I’ve been on radio and television for the past forty years. Thing was, I was searching for a radio station that cared about its listeners and […]

I’ve been broadcasting since 1993 having had a passion for radio since I listened to the offshore pirate stations as an 8 year old! I have presented at various local stations over the years including Q103 (now Heart), Star Radio, Fen Radio, HCR, and KL.FM (now Greatest Hits) and was lucky enough to have been […]

Not to be dramatic, but music is my life.......

About me!….. Well, where to begin. I sort of began my journey as a radio presenter by accident, a bit like sitting down at the wrong table at a restaurant, you don’t belong there but people seemed to just shrug their shoulders and carry on as normal and they needed someone else to join the […]
