Fresh Air - Fresh Sound Across The North West & North Wales
Hi, my name is Andy, and started in radio, perhaps like many others, by listening to FM radio while driving, and thinking how I would love to get into all that, for the love of the music, and the interaction with listeners, such as myself.
My first encounter with radio started way back in 1987 when I used to sit with Paul Leckie at Radio City FM in his 'Down Town' days, when there were literally no other radio stations, and Paul was listened to by 1.8 Million people. Then in 1993, I joined Radio City Gold, all but for a very short period, and sadly had to leave due to my own stupidity.
15 years passed by, and in 2008 joined 7Waves Radio on the Wirral 92.1fm, and totally enjoyed many great years with the team, including 4 years covering Breakfast and a year covering the daytime show. Then out the blue, a great guy called Jon Jessop, gave me my first break with Commercial Radio, when I joined Dune FM 107.9 covering breakfast, drive, daytimes, evenings etc., such an equally superb time with them and a great learning curve too, before the very sad demise of Dune FM in late 2012.
Subsequently I joined the great Mighty FM, now Mighty Radio, and also HCR 92.3fm, where I am delighted to be able to remain with both, as a presenter with Mighty, and from 'programs' to a 'techy' with HCR, which again is a great new experience in the world of radio. It's also great to hear Alan Wayne on Bliss Radio, you are so going to enjoy his radio style.
I would like to thank all those great people who have helped me along my way, Pauline, Nick, Glynn, (the late) Paul from 7waves, John, Mike, Sarah, from Dune FM, Trevor, Dave the Mighty Quinn, Paul Tasker from Mighty, and Matt and Kev from HCR, and to people like Paul Bradders who have been there so many times to help with keeping me refreshed.
I am delighted to be able to join a brand new fresh team at BLISS Radio, headed by Sean and Emma, and look forward to many years of great music from a great Radio Station and Team. I Hope, as a listener, you can interact with me too, and help me along the way, to make BLISS a great radio station for 2018 onwards
