I work full time as a taxi driver/controller to pay the bills and I also repair cb radios.

I also used to be a mobile dj for a number of years with Double Deck Disco

My radio “career”  started in my shed in 1988 running a pirate station called Radio Rupert with my late wing man Richard Letts aka Supercrook. We got removed from the airwaves by the DTI and my next go at radio was at Vision FM an RSL (Restricted Service Licence) station in Braunstone in Leicester. The station was set up as part of the New Deal project that saw a lot of money invested in the estate. I eventually presented the breakfast show for a couple of the 28 day broadcasts and will be forever grateful to the late Steve Hanley aka Steve Antonio for giving me the chance to get on air.

In 2007 I was asked to join Harborough FM a community radio station that had just started to broadcast to Market Harborough. I ended up presenting the mid morning show full time until October 2014 when I left the station.
