I live in London, UK and am a lifelong musician having picked up the guitar at 12 years old. I love all types of music and have played in many different types of bands from blues to dance to jazz to folk. Still playing in bands and love every minute of it. I have a special love of the Blues and sharing that love with people on the air is a real privilege. However, my love of all music comes across in my show in the ‘Joker in the Pack’ slot where I play a song that is not necessarily Blues but one I really love.
The Blues Café is my venture into Radio …

Paul has been creating radio shows since he was old enough to work a tape recorder. Now, some 45 years later, he feels he is dangerously close to actually being good at it.
Paul’s been a voice over artist for 30 years now, and in his new show – Reel Music, he really wants the tunes to do the talking. You’ll hear chart hits made famous by movies, TV themes from shows both new and old, and lots more.
There’ll be brain teasers, random mixes and stuff you’ve never heard before, all blended together in a show so eclectic, you’ll swear he’s making it up as he goes along.
SATURDAY 9pm - 11pm
A few months ago, I decided to try my hand at producing a syndicated radio show from home, to be made freely available, each week, to hospital and community radio stations.

Christian Music Spotlight with Brian David is a Contemporary Christian AC show. I do a verbal top 5 countdown, concert calendar, and I feature two 60-second devotionals to encourage and grow your faith in God. My slogan is “Today’s Hits & Yesterday’s Classics” because I play today’s biggest Christian hits, and the second song of the first and second segments are a classic song that you might have forgotten about. I also play songs that were not necessarily radio singles, but ones that you might enjoy since they fit my format. Sometimes you may hear an independent artist also, which you probably won’t hear anywhere else. I also do my best not to repeat an artist or song in back-to-back weeks. With the great variety of songs that I handpick, you will surely enjoy it. I invite you to listen to Christian Music Spotlight and to tell your friends!
FRIDAYS 10am - 11am
Steve is the host of Just Jazz. He’s a writer, VO artist, and built this website using bits of old code he found in a ZX Spectrum.
He’s a frustrated piano player, former professional club DJ, and radio presenter who managed to entertain UK club-goers with his choice of music and tomfoolery until the corporations took over in the 90s.
If you danced around handbags at top clubs in Essex and Kent in the 80s and early 90s, well… you may have seen Steve on the DJ stand at venues in Southend-on-Sea such as Zhivago’s, The Zero 6, High Society, Electric Blue, and Basildon’s iconic The Sam Lords (now a block of flats).
In Kent he was resident DJ at Neros 2000 (Ramsgate), Woody’s (Isle of Sheppy), and Oceans II (Hythe).
He was a Radio Top Shop presenter in the 80s, volunteered at Southend Hospital Radio, hosted breakfast at Basildon Radio (now Gateway), and enjoyed shifts working in the newsrooms at BBC Essex and Essex Radio in the 90s.
He had a short stint at stand-up (until he was asked to sit down), and you may have seen him on Channel 4 TV (as the interference).
He hosted 80s club music show The Pleasuredome for three years and records his shows in a broom cupboard using an avant garde mixture of wooden boxes, string, bits of wire, and elastic bands.
Steve is currently based in New Zealand and would kill for a pint in an old English pub served with Cumberland sausage and chips. Oh, and a traditional English teacake… and the pecan pie you used to get at Iceland wouldn’t go amiss either.
Has been heard to say: “Is it on?”
Will never say: “Download my app.

I enjoy collecting memorabilia from the era, and have a collection of authentic clothes and instrument’s from the period.
But it wasn’t always music that was my career though.

Veteran radio presenter of over 30 years, Emma Scott has today revealed details of her new globally syndicated radio show.
The Pluggin Baby Radio Show is being offered as a 2-hour weekly programme to stations all over the world and features the most exciting independent talent from her radio plugging business, Pluggin Baby, which she has been running since 2013.
The show, which will be pre-recorded in her own Cambridgeshire home studio will also play established bands who have fired up Emma’s musical passion since she started her radio career back in 1988.
Acoustic sets and interviews with familiar artists and classic tracks, as well as introductions to fresh new bands should keep ears and the imagination fired up with its weekly offering. The show is currently rattling in the blocks with already over 30 stations worldwide embracing the excitement of hosting its celebration. “The more the merrier” says Emma with a broad mischievous grin.
As Emma shines the spotlight on her favourite artists and encounters from over the years; exhilarating new sounds will lie seamlessly side by side with the likes of “Shinedown, Linkin Park, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Paramore, Stereophonics, Jimmy Eat World, Placebo, and of course Muse!”, the latter a band openly beloved by the lady herself.
“So good, I named my company after one of their songs!” she declared.
THE PLUGGIN’ BABY RADIO SHOW is already whipping up excitement in the same way Emma has over the years with the likes of Kerrang! Radio, Metro FM, Hallam FM, Power FM, Chiltern Radio, Heart, Galaxy, Juice and many more.
In the words of Emma, “Having worked in the music industry for over 30 years, I have radio in my blood” and as the show will epitomise and the music industry can attest to over the past couple of decades or so, the supporting and promoting of new bands and great sounds lies deep in her heart, it all brought forth once more with the fun and passion only rock ‘n’ roll can inspire.
A fresh exciting breath in every sense, the Pluggin Baby Radio launches worldwide, from September 1st.

Jeff started taking a real interest in music from an early age. He developed an interest in DJing when his brother teamed up with a friend and used to do the clubs and pubs in the mid-70s. Fast-forward 40-odd years, and having been an avid listener to an online station for a few years, approached the owner about doing a one-off New Years Day special, for 2019/2020. It was well-received, and as a result he was offered a weekly slot. The rest as they say is history. He now presents for several stations. He really enjoys preparing and recording his show, as it really gets him thinking about what to play, and when. Off-air he enjoys the theatre, both on- and back-stage, and seeing local bands play

Titus Jennings – a child of the 60s and of suburban London, though now a resident of South Wales - has been involved in radio and the music industry, in one form or another, for most of his working life.
He's been waffling away and playing his always-eclectic blend of music since the late 70s on stations such as London Hospitals Broadcasting, Kingston Hospital Radio and University Radio Bath. In the 90s and 00s he presented the Breakfast Shows on Bath’s Torch FM and Bristol's Caroline Rocks, and has been working as a presenter / producer & programme controller on a number of internet-based stations since 2005.
Titus managed a couple of Bristol record stores in the late 80s, was a Pinnacle Records sales rep for a decade, and has also written CD, DVD and book reviews for Record Collector and other publications. He did ask us to mention that he is available for further voiceover, writing and audio production work; please send offers via his email, twitter or facebook accounts (which he plugs relentlessly).
His Retro Album Chart Show features the charts from 2 years each week, and includes the cream of the crop from each (or at least the cream of the relevant crop of his collection...).
The Titus Jennings Experience is a programme featuring a wide array of styles, some very new and some rather older, but all hand-picked and sorted in order to give your ears a real treat. As someone once put it "Top Tunes Without Boundaries".
SATURDAY 7pm - 9pm
Danny Coleman has said, "My cousin gave me, 'Led Zeppelin IV' for my twelfth birthday and it literally changed my life forever." The receipt of that record was the impetus behind a career in music; eventually leading him to become a published entertainment journalist and radio personality.
Faced with having to re-invent himself after several difficult life events including an unexpected severe back injury, he returned to the one constant in his life: music.
It has been said that, "Necessity is the Mother of Invention" and 'Rock On Radio' is proof positive of that statement. Left unemployed and with his back to the wall he returned to his past after answering an ad which read, "Radio show hosts/ideas wanted" which had been posted by an AM station in South Central NJ. Coleman pitched the idea of giving unsigned indie artists a platform to be heard and "Rock On Radio" was born.
From the program sprung a journalism career and a resurgence in gigs as well as YouTube programs, "One More with Danny Coleman" and "What's Next? w/ Danny Coleman and Maryann Castello."
"Rock On Radio" celebrated its 10th Anniversary on April 26, 2019 and can be found every Sunday evening at 7 p.m. EST on www.COARadio.com and in syndication throughout the week on multiple other outlets.
Danny's "Rock On! this Week's Sound Bites" column is published weekly on www.NewJerseyStage.com and in syndication on several other sites as well. In this you will find an interview piece with a musician, entertainer or artist and event/venue listings for the coming week.
Music makes the world smaller, live, love and as always....ROCK ON!
Andy Craik FRIDAY 1pm till 3pm
Andy was a DJ in Manchester pubs, clubs and social events in the 1990s and with the onset of the internet he continued DJing as an online mix DJ – search for DJ Frankie Pigeon for examples of Andy’s early work.
In 2021 Andy became the host of 247’s only film music show Screen Sounds where he built up a loyal fanbase of listeners. With the expansion of the On This Day format from the popular On This Day 80s show Andy is proud to be hosting the weekly chart decades show On This Day 90s.
Andy was 18 years old in 1990 so the 90s are a well-loved era of music. Andy has a wide musical taste ranging from punk, dance, classic pop, electronica and everything else so expect to hear a bit of everything. Andy’s aim is to remind listeners that the 1990s have much more to offer than just the Britpop, Girl Power and Rave culture that you might first think of about the last decade of the 20th century. With help from the OTD90s listening community Andy will be playing a mixture of classic hits and forgotten 90s gems and invites everyone to join him on the journey through the 90s.

Album rock radio veteran Ken Rundel and his wife MJ host this ode to peace, love, and rock and roll from the George Carlin Memorial Studio in the Bamboo Peace Palace, Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Ken’s also been an attorney, actor, and improv comedian and instructor.
MJ grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, addicted to the heritage album rocker, KSHE-95. Her extensive knowledge of rock and roll as well as her talent as an artist gave her incredible backstage access to all the early icons of album rock, including Cat Stevens, Alvin Lee, Jon Anderson, Donovan, Randy California, Elton John, and Ian Anderson. Her beautiful, mind-blowing posters graced the dressing room doors of all the greats.

TUESDAYS 1pm - 3pm
I bought my first single in 1969....."Sugar Sugar" by The Archies!!! I continued collecting rather a cross section of music until my best friend bought me "Burn" by Deep Purple for my eighteen birthday!! That was it....I became a life long "rocker" from then on!!
So my first love is ROCK, as is my second & third love.....although The Carpenters are my guilty pleasure!!
My love of Radio has been going for more years than I care to remember.....25+ years with Sunshine Radio on the Isle of Wight & a stint on internet radio with Vectis Radio for eight years, then I seemed to get offers to broadcast my shows all over the place!
A final thought....If someone had told me in 1969 not to collect the 6000 plus albums I collected over the decades because you'd be able to access them & more on a mobile phone that fits in the palm of your hand I'd have never have believed it!!! Mind, I did enjoy collecting them!!!
