I got into music in the 60's playing mainly blues, as i was an avid Eric Clapton fan, as most of North London had graffiti saying "Clapton is a God.
I then spent the next 45 years in Telecoms & Finance, with the odd foray back into playing Blues, R&B and even Reaggae.
When I retired I moved to Spain and started following all the local bands, before playing in a couple and re-learning how to be a musician. What was apparent was that the local weekly free newspapers always told me what i had missed. The music forums helped in finding live music, but it was easy to miss so many good gigs and musicians.
So i started the "Almeria Gig Guide" - Live music covering five forums, a website, centre page spread of "what's on in PadPall Pages", and of course our fortnightly interview with Jack Savage on his morning show. Keeping our followers informed of the new bands and the latest in what's on.
I also started The Blues Club and "The Sonny Boy Blues Band", with my old mate Colin Barnard and together with Dustin Greenwood and John Stroud we gig regularly.
Monday Night Blues is a follow-on from our bands "Sunday Blues" sessions; an opportunity to pour yourselves a drink, sit back and listen to the blues.
Between The Almeria Gig Guide, the Blues Band, The Blues Club and following the other bands that we like, Linda and I chill out with our rescue dog Pasquale, who is more famous locally than we are!!

Born into a world of music and musicians in the days of the old ‘steam radio’ we had no television only the radio which brought the world into our houses and lives. Music was then a first love, even on the BBC light service; however when I could get a good signal ‘Radio Luxemburg’ was the station to listen to.
I missed out on the Pirate Radio era as I was wandering around in deep jungle many miles from here, the nearest we got to ‘pop music’ was the forces radio station in Singapore. I did not however everlose my love for music, and in later life I actually got to present music over the airwaves in the Americas’ in a little state called New York, oh no, not the City, but the state. We actually transmitted from Buffalo which to be honest is the other side ofthe country, but still in ‘New York State’.
Many years have passed, much water has flowed. Long story, but from those early days and with a good grounding in radio I have kept myself busy in the business and industry that we all know as Radio.Although never a seeker of fame, I have appeared with many of the top names in music and radio over those years and had a name as being a very reliable and versatile presenter and MC. Illness has caused me to pack in a few times, but once in the blood, it can never be removed, and so I hope to remain, if not at the top of the tree, somewhere within the branches on Smooth FM.

New to Smooth FM Live is "Corky" who will be playing you some of your favorite country music. Craig “Corky” has been involved in music radio and nightclubs for many years and has been presenting Corkys Country Show on Valle Radio & AMR Radio and many more.

Since leaving school at 15 years old, presenting for Smooth FM is only my third ever job!.
Ex Chef and Employee of a bank now the oldest apprentice at Smooth Radio.
Been a scooter boy since 17 and love the music.
All I want to do now is to share it with all the listeners.

A south east London boy, born and bred, and a Milwall fan obviously. I went to Forest Hills boys school where i had my first encounter with radio.
I joined the radio club where we made "mini shows" and presented to the school. The main claim to fame was at 15yrs old we got to present on Capital Radio. I've had a varied career since then but notably owning my own estate agency and finally my own pub. I would call myself an estate agent if pressed.
The pub was a live music venue which we had for 5 yrs, it rekindled my love of music. Now living in Spain i am delighted to be allowed to play with the knobs at Smooth FM.
Its like starting over at 15, a kid in a sweetie shop

I first got the radio bug when I was at school and I used to put two ancient hi-fi systems together and record my own shows
on a flat deck tape player (thankfully these tapes no longer exist).
Many years later at college in 1991, I worked on a charity station called Radio Cracker and knew this is what I wanted to do,
however with other things taking off I never really found the opportunity to pursue this until 2010
when a visit to the studios of Skyline Radio in Southampton reignited my enthusiasm for radio.
