I am delighted to be part of the team at Radio Leinster I was born and brought up in Essex but I have many family connections in Ireland making being part of this station very special


I was inspired to become involved in radio as part of the teenage generation that listened to the innovative pirate stations broadcasting off the Essex coast. With a good friend from my school (KEGS) in Chelmsford I joined the Hospital Radio station there, and from this many opportunities happened with local radio which, as it came very late in Essex , ranged from Kent to Suffolk, before becoming part of the team at Essex Radio.


I am delighted that Radio Leinster is putting itself at its core the local community with no many fantastic areas to cover as this seems to have been largely lost as commercial radio in particular has lost their connection with the listeners they serve. this station is very unique and it has a real feel good factor

 

On Radio Leinster I will be keeping you company through the night and will be popping up too in daylight!!!- it was one of my roles with Essex Radio and the Breeze - Please let me know what you want to hear and I will do my best to include it in the programme.


Music has always been a passion for me so as you see from my picture I love to be part of the music makers of Rock Choir and this was taken when we recorded at Abbey Road .
