Radio & Broadcast Work
I love radio as a medium both to listen to and be part of.
With a background in the burgeoning pirate radio scene of the 90s and 00s, DJing, co-ordinating guest artists, recording interviews and of course the creative stuff, I’ve retained a life-long love of the unpredictable journey that is radio, tuning into stations around the world. I remain involved in radio wherever possible, contributing articles and doing interviews as a guest.
I’m a frequent and enthusiastic contributor to BBC Radio Leicester, providing interviews and mini-guest slots on topical, creatively-themed subjects.
Altar Ego Radio
Over four bank holiday sessions, Altar Ego broadcast both on FM and online for 4 continuous days, playing the gamut of musical genres with a dizzying 24-hour schedule of back-to-back guest DJS. A massive technical and creative group effort, it wasn’t without its challenges and adventures!
Me, my partner, a school chum and a small team of enthusiastic and dedicated music lovers ran a tiny but far-reaching FM pirate radio station from assorted tower blocks and flats for many years; an unexpected boot camp for myriad practical, organisational, creative and people skills.
We were recently interviewed about our experience with pirate radio. You can listen to Part One of the story of pirate radio on the Bureau of Lost Culture by Stephen Coates, with Jonathan More of Coldcut.
We're the subject of Part Two, coming soon.
