Did you grow up locally?
My father was in the RAF. I was born at RAF Binbrook in Lincolnshire. As a family we arrived at RAF Wyton in 1958, I was schooled locally attending Houghton infant’s school and Huntingdon County Juniors before going on to St Peters Secondary Modern. I left in 1969, my apprenticeship saw me at Huntingdon Technical College for a further 5 years.
I met my future wife at Huntingdon youth centre,, I got married here so I guess I love the town
What are your favourite hobbies?
MUSIC!!! It has always been music. I had my own soul disco at the age of 16 (1970).
Joining HCR104fm in August 2009 has put a major tick on my bucket list of things to do and corny as it sounds it is really is an honour to be a part of it.
As one of my fellow presenters succinctly puts it, “It is one hell of a train set”.
Favourite places?
Firstly to be at home with my family around me, secondly to be somewhere sunny with my lovely wife,
Favourite foods?
A hot north Indian garlic and chilli curry with onion fried rice and a peshwari naan all made and delivered by the Darjeeling in town
