About Us

Starting this station as a hobby and passion, we have really moved forward so rapidly. Hoping to maybe get a couple of hundred listeners, unbelievably we have had over 100,000!  Since we started on June 17th 2019, pretty amazing really.

We provide one of the best stations for oldies- well if you call starting about four years ago- then all the way back to the 70s and further back.  We have a truly professional approach and this shows in the quality of the music we play.

We now have daily shows, here is Dave who was our first new contributors to the station, Remember we have many more DJ's who we haven't mentioned here.

Dave Edwards -“That Seventies Sound”

Dave Edwards has been associated with the world of Radio Broadcasting for over 40 years, having started as many do, in Hospital Radio. He was one of the driving forces behind the formation of The Loughborogh Hospitals Broadcasting Service (LHBS) back in 1975.

In fact Dave was the Station Manager for several years.

 He was also associated with Radio Fox, in his home city of Leicester, in the early 1990’s. He produced and presented the Sunday Breakfast Show.

 Dave has, over the years,  worked for both Commercial and Publicly funded radio stations both here in the UK, as well world-wide.

 He started as a Studio Assistant at BBC Radio Leicester in 1976.

 He was used as a Commercial ‘Voice Over’ talent on Radio Trent in Nottingham and Mercia Sound in Coventry in the eighties.

 Dave spent several years producing and presenting shows for local stations here in the UK.  He also spent some time broadcasting in Indonesia.

 Dave returned to live in the UK again in 2010. He has spent the past few years providing ‘Voice Overs’ for several radio Stations, producing them in the Broadcast Studio that he has set up at his home.

 He has also been very busy running  his own Internet Radio Station, Classic Hits Uk, which showcases the hits of the 60’s & 70’s. The station is heard in over 95 countries worldwide.

Having grown up in the Sixties, and having experienced the Seventies, he has a genuine love for the popular music of those two  decades.

His special love of the 70’s is reflected in his show called ‘That Seventies Sound’ which he produces and presents each and every week. The show is not only heard on Classic Hits Uk, but on other quality radio station’s around the globe.

0Gary Hopkins-  presents "Back to the 80s" and  A Blast from the 80's"

My name is Gary and I present Back to the 80s and A Blast from the 80's.
I’ve been in radio since 2010 presenting live radio on various stations and pre-recorded shows since early 2017.
The one thing I love about my shows, is finding the gems that haven’t been heard by myself and so probably the listener for a number of years either, and that for me is the best thing about presenting my shows.

I live in SW England with my family and work full time and consider radio as my hobby.

I love all kinds of music and have a very varied playlist on my phone.Add the main advantages of your business that make it unique and the best.

During his 4 years at Amber Sound FM he presented The Breakfast Show, Drive Time and his favourite show The Soul Show which started in 1994.

In 1997 Glyn began the ‘Soultastic’ Soul Club based at Alfreton Leisure Centre in Derbyshire UK attracting up to 800 soul lovers every month at the regular monthly soul nights.

During the late 70’s Glyn was a regular attendee at The Wigan Casino and lots of other soul all-nighters across the country.

Glyn’s taste is very wide and with a huge collection of both northern soul and more modern tunes.

 Colin French – “Rewind to the 70’s”

 

Colin was introduced to turntables playing the 45’s of the day at family party’s in the mid 50’s. He remembers Eddie Fisher’s Cindy Oh Cindy as the first track he ever played. His first job in radio was as a casual panel operator at a small country station. He also worked on commercial broadcasting stations both on air and behind the scenes as a voice talent. In the early 80’s he produced a 60’s top 40 show on Community Radio in 2BCR 88.7 FM Bankstown and later 2GLF Liverpool in Sydney  N S W Australia.

He moved to  Bundaberg with his family in the 90’s  and  helped set up the town’s first Community Station Coral Coast 94.7 FM which opened in 2000.  A couple of years later  he worked on a second station 96.3 FM.Colin, his wife Jan and the ”ZOO” moved to Tasmania  where he was toretire but Colin’s interest in everything radio raised its head again. 

He spent a short time presenting Christian pop music on the internet station ”The Journey” at lunchtime Central time in the US. Later he opened his own Internet radio, Goodtime Oldies playing exclusively 60’s classics complete with jingles of the time. Unfortunately he found as many hobby web casters do, the Government fees were beyond him and closed the station after 9 years. During this time Colin found that producing programmes for other small broadcasters satisfying and has opened this website so the stations can obtain these for FREE.

Steve James- presents -“The Blues Café”

 

I live in London, UK and am a lifelong musician having picked up the guitar at 12 years old. I love all types of music and have played in many different types of bands from blues to dance to jazz to folk. Still playing in bands and love every minute of it. I have a special love of the Blues and sharing that love with people on the air is a real privilege. However, my love of all music comes across in my show in the ‘Joker in the Pack’ slot where I play a song that is not necessarily Blues but one I really love. 

The Blues Café is my venture into Radio …

Member of the IBBA (Independent Blues Broadcasters Association).

Member of the     UK    Blues Federation.

Philip Medcalf – “The Golden Years”

Like many up and coming radio presenters I started my radio career in hospital radio within the 2 years of being at my local hospital radio I went on to be nominated at the national HBA (Hospital Broadcasting Association) awards, not once but twice! The first time was for Best New Comer and the second was for Best Male Presenter.

At the end of my time on Hospital Radio Lynn I moved to a new local online radio station called Fen Radio.  I snapped up the opportunity to be a part of a new upcoming local radio station and I started to present Tuesday night’s Heroes of The Zer00’s. 

 

Now with a fully functioning studio I could now broadcast Heroes of The Zer00’s from my home, which got me thinking on what else I could use the studio for and then one night I had an idea about doing syndicate radio shows and as you can see the rest is now history.

 

Paul Rose – presents- "Reel Music"

Paul has been creating radio shows since he was old enough to work a tape recorder. Now, some 45 years later, he feels he is dangerously close to actually being good at it.

Paul’s been a voice over artist for 30 years now, and in his new show – Reel Music, he really wants the tunes to do the talking. You’ll hear chart hits made famous by movies, TV themes from shows both new and old, and lots more.

There’ll be brain teasers, random mixes and stuff you’ve never heard before, all blended together in a show so eclectic, you’ll swear he’s making it up as he goes along.

Mark Jones - Presents- The Lockdown Top 20

School was school, I was just a snotty average kid trying to fit in and get the girls but after leaving school I became an ambient stock replenishment assistant (otherwise known and a night time shelf stacker) in my local Kwiksave and actually earned real life money.

While earning my piles of dosh I joined hospital radio and became a Technical Music & speech broadcasting personal (Radio presenter) because of a friend at the ripe old age of 17 and quickly realised that this was something I wanted to spend my life doing.

I went on from there to work for the BBC in Stoke On Trent and stayed there for a few years until I realised that I had more to give than talking about if some old fellas wheelie bin that had not been emptied and the some old dears complain about the rise in the price of stamps so I left for my local commercial station where I was a presenter and outside broadcast personality (Otherwise know as a DJ).

From there I moved to North Wales to work again as a (Broadcasting operations and speech based technician) in other words a presenter and became head of producer and Creative for the radio group.

I stayed there for a number of years until I was head hunted by another company in North Wales but this time as a radio and TV / video producer providing Live Radio and filming for the World Rally Championship and Eurosport’s European Rally Championship. Fast cars and radio and promotional ladies in skimpy clothes who could ask for more.

I stayed working for that company until sadly the boss and a close personal friend passed away and the company closed but he had prepared me well to stand on my own two feet and start up a company on my own. I have never looked back since and have a lot to thank him for.

I now run a radio and video production company and still to this day provide live radio services for large rally related spoting events and my dulcet tones can be heard all over the world with my voice over works.

While in Lockdown and out of sheer boredom I decided to create the Lockdown Top 20 show and thankfully the boss at Mighty Radio liked the idea and put me on air and the rest is history……. Oh and the job title I give myself these days is job title these days is a (current musical trends corporate and public communication broadcasting officer). Otherwise know as Mark J the chart show guy.
