Weekdays 8am

Steven has always preferred radio to disco/nightclub presenting. For 17 years he did both with hundreds of Wedding receptions, 21st birthdays and presenting 6 nights a week in top hotel/nightclubs in Norway and Switzerland.

When his consortium failed to get a radio licence in 1981 for Blackpool (Red Rose Radio got it for Preston) he went to work on a Pirate Radio Ship broadcasting to 500,000 listeners in Israel and Cyprus.

He does a lot of research for his daily one hour show, linking music events and artists with the same date in music over the decades. He has spent hundreds of hours, editing some of the older hits. So more music memories can be packed into each hour.
