Paul Baker

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.

David Sibbald

A Scot from Edinburgh but at university in Glasgow, I embarked on my radio career at Radio Clyde in the Newsroom. But I found the attraction of teaching Spanish, Russian, Portuguese and French was too strong to resist.

In 1985 I moved abroad (to England!) and managed to own a restaurant while teaching part-time. It was then I had a regular Sunday Nostalgia programme on Yorkshire Dales Radio, then on the internet and after I finally retired from teaching, I found myself doing a daily breakfast show on a community radio station in Yorkshire.

Hi Ray I have to write to say your show is the best in the area without being prejudice it is worth tuning into. I always say live presenting is always better, we had the same problem down on mijas costa. Presenters are hard to get as most do it free or get their own sponsors. Well done keep it up and keep playing my type of music.
Gil
Hi Smooth FM, Just a quick note to tell you how much we enjoy your recent programmes. We have been Smooth FM (via computer) listeners since you first started but we also listened to BBC Radio2 quite often particularly on a Sunday. However since you have improved your signal we are able to receive you loud and clear on our radio and I want you to know how we appreciate the music you are playing now and not too many adverts, we listen to you all day. (up to 18.15 when Mum wants to watch Pointless!!!!) We are a couple of 'Old Codgers' in our eighties and you play all the music we like? Particularly on a Sunday when it was always BBC Radio2 all day. Well done and thank you.
