What type of music can we expect to hear can we expect to hear on your programme?
Broadcasting every fourth Sunday of the month, 4–6pm, you can expect a diverse and eclectic mix of everything and anything; old, new, recently heard, rediscovered, forgotten, indie, alternative, epic, classics, passive recommendations, rock, pop, some real quirky stuff, complex beats of all kinds and maybe some things you may have never heard before, hopefully something for all.

What is the format of your programme?
Just some beautiful handpicked Aural treats, a little chat with you all in radio space and a few regular features, my Favourite B-side being one.

Why should we listen to listen to your programme?
Being on a Sunday 4–6pm it may help keep the Sunday blues at bay and keeps you happy.

How did your programme come about?
I have been an avid listener of Phonic FM for a few years. I had a long conversation to fellow Phonic DJ, Lee Rawlings about our love of Mike Oldfield’s music and was invited to be a guest of one of his late night shows. It was a great experience. Lee suggested I should give Phonic FM a go.

What goes on behind the scenes in the studio?
Sometimes I see faces at the studio door starring at me! Is it because I’m singing and dancing along to the music whilst it’s playing on air… maybe?

What has been your best on air moment?
Having a go at mixing, as one track finishes and fades I then merge the next track in. Sometimes it works!

What has been your worst/most embarrassing on air moment?
I get into the swing of things with the studio equipment and then something happens like pressing the wrong button or the “on air” fader is still up or realising you didn’t get the CD cued up ready…

Who is your favourite artist?
Van Gogh… oh I have quite a few firm favourites, Mike Oldfield.

He got me interested in Guitars and really inspired me to make and record music.

What is your favourite all time favourite album?
Tubular bells

It just great, It has a bit of everything, rock, jazz, blues, folk, progressive, minimalist, tape effects, classical layouts, a little bit of humour and the iconic tubular bell art work on the cover say it all.
