This week I found a ‘behind the scenes’ video of the Breakfast Show I used to present on 106 Century FM in the East Midlands. It shows what was happening on and off the air while the songs and commercials were playing and how quickly we go from live to pre recorded and back again. […]

One of the main differences between working in radio and TV is the amount of control you get. You get to make a lot more of the editorial decisions when you’re on the radio. In 1998, while working at 2CR in Dorset, I had the honour of meeting Jim and Alison Cronin for the first […]

In 2001 I learned a great lesson about perspective. I made a series of programs for Carlton Television called “Trading Places”, which went out on ITV. They took people from different walks of life and gave them a disability for a week. As I work with sound, they made me deaf. It’s actually difficult to […]


Today’s flat screen TVs are so narrow, you can’t put things on top of them. When I was a kid, all sorts of stuff used to live on top of our telly. There were ornaments, photos in frames and after my mother did night school classes in flower arranging, her latest “arrangement” would take pride of […]
