THE SIXTIES SHOW – Tuesday Nights 8pm – 10pm
The Sixties Show is more than just Two hours of classic Sixties hits its a nostalgic look back look back at the Swinging Sixties, a musical decade full of fab fun, groovy hits, power pop and classic tunes played on the airwaves through portable transistor radio’s.
The Sixties Show is a nostalgic nod to the era presented in a entertaining and informative way reminiscence of the golden days of radio broadcasting from the pirate stations to the launch of nationwide pop programming on Radio One and other nationwide radio stations.
Featured on the show each week are unreleased tracks, rare gems not heard for a while some you may never have heard before. Demo’s and live recordings, plus to set the mood authentic jingles and adverts of the period.
Special editions of the show are also present from time to time covering a certain specialist topic, so look out for those special shows.
The Sixties show is presented by Glenn Mitchell who has a great respect and admiration for those fabulous radio presenters he carries the touch from such as Brian Mathews, Alan Fluff Freeman, Tony Blackburn, Kenny Everett and many more legends of the airways.
Hi everybody, it’s a great pleasure and honour to be able to present my show to you, and be apart of Cambrian Radio, I certainly hope you enjoy listening to my show, hopefully there is something for everyones musical tastes.
A little bit about myself, I’m a Liverpool lad but have spend most of my life travelling back and forth from Liverpool to North Wales. My family had catering business along the North Wales coast from many years. Eventually I moved and settled in North Wales and married a local Welsh girl we have three grown up boys, and are now proud grandparents.
For the past 10 years I have been a musician in a Beatles tribute band, and have had the greatest honour to have met a few of my all time heroes of the era, and in some cases even shared the stage with them.
I have a great love and respect for Sixties music and culture,
I enjoy collecting memorabilia from the era, and have a collection of authentic clothes and instrument’s from the period.
But it wasn’t always music that was my career though.
I am also a qualified nurse, working as a Cancer Nurse, for over 25 years.
Another of my hobbies is acting although started out as an amateur Thespian, I have been lucky to have had work on the TV in lots of stuff like ‘Coronation Street’, ‘Children’s Ward’ and a few films, I’ve worked for the BBC, S4C, Granada and Sky TV.
I enjoy music, playing guitar, cooking and drinking chilled White wine, I enjoy having friends over for dinner, so your always welcome at my home if bringing any of the above.
Hope you have fab fun listening in and please message me for any requests or just for a chat.
