Avril Clark (she/her) shows
Hi and welcome to TRUK. I’m Avril, Lucy’s wife and Co-Founder and have been here since the beginning. I have always loved music for as long as I can remember, my dad was a DJ in the 60’s, driving to gigs on his Triumph motorbike with a speaker strapped to his back, he also plays the accordion and piano, I played the flute, piano, recorder (of course!) and my siblings played different instruments. Music was a big focus in our family home and back in the days we all started very young with our own record players and tape decks and grew a pretty impressive vinyl and CD collection.
I had never been involved in radio before but have a good business head so when Lucy started TRUK I was right there from the start supporting her and helping the station grow. A few of years ago I stood in for a presenter who was unable to do their show and my step into presenting was born, and I LOVE it! I have several of my own shows but still do a lot of work behind the scenes as well as being Social Media Manager & New Music Manager. We are not just a radio station, we are here to support the community and champion for change.
I am a massive ally and trans activist and you will find me at many protests using my voice.
Who knew I would love doing radio so much too! I do several shows but my ‘babies’ are the 70s show (I ADORE 70s music) and the new music Monday show where I especially love playing LGBTQIA+ songs!
