Born and bred in Newcastle upon Tyne, left there in 1968 to join the Royal Navy. Did 12yrs in the fleet arm then went on to work at Normalair Garret(Westland Helicopters)
From there to various airports in the UK, servicing airlines equipment and aircraft. It was lousy money so left when they started cutting corners.
Got into construction, much better money and from there to health & safety officer. RetiredtoSpain and have been here 15yrs.... love it.
Was introduced to radio by the owner of Valle radio, Mike Hall, who told me he was popping out for a few minutes so just do this and that, then returned almost 2hrs later. That was me hooked.
Since then i have presented on Valle, Venom FM, Power radio, Storm FM and here i am now on Smooth. 12 years and still marching on.
I am sometimes know as Mr Opinionated or the Rant Man. Pet hates: Snakes, reptile and the human variety.People users, Leonard Cohen singing, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.
