Hi, I began as a volunteer with SMHR in September 1988 producing the Tuesday Request Show and over the years I have continually taken an active role in the stations fund raising, as well as regularly contributing to the SMHR magazine and presenting a number of different programmes such as The Request Show, The Love Hour, Bingo on the Wards, The Hit Trip, The Glam Rock Years, Northern Soul Train, Summer Jukebox as well as my current shows 'Back To the 70s' and 'The Aylesbury Chart Show' - which has been broadcast more than any other programme at the station since it began in 1990, clocking up over 1600 editions!

I have held the post of Programme Controller three times which has included our move to AM and subsequent move to FM, the introduction of Myriad our 'live' computer system and the organising of a number of special programmed fundraising events. I have also been a member of the Committee on numerous occasions throughout my 35 years plus with the station.

My other hobbies include collecting CD's and listening to music, Luton Town FC, going to the gym, appearing on TV programmes and being with my family.
