I spent 16 years in Cyprus working from Ayia Napa to Pathos, from Larnica to Nicosia and was a guest DJ at Car Wash and was also one of the DJs at Cocoa Bar, Protaras when Geordie Shores was filmed there a few years ago
I became a volunteer radio presenter in 2018 but have always loved music. My music taste is wide ranging but my favourites are electronic dance music, especially house, and indie and rock. I was born in the south of England but have lived in the Far North of Scotland for 18 years. I realised I was non-binary in 2016 and it was a relief to find the language to finally understand myself. The LGBT+ community is very small where I live, and I hope by being part of the Trans Radio UK family I can show others they are not on their own, wherever they are.
I worked as a presenter for BBC local radio on music shows in the 70's interviewing groups like queen, when they were a support act, Slade, lots of beers with those boys backstage, Mott the Hoople, I've seen Mick Hunter without the shades, and sooo many more. Then went to US and worked for radio stations in LA and the west coast, which was very different to the beeb but its where I learnt a great deal. In the UK I worked in production on many tv programmes including Top of the Pops in the early 80s and could tell you some tales, but of course.... I wont !
I've been collecting music on vinyl since people were dumping it for CD. I've found wild, weird and wondrous records of all kinds over the years, and I love sharing those sounds.

I started presenting with Russ just before the end of January 2022. And I really enjoyed it! Although I have previous experience with hospital bedside radio in October 2018. In 2021 I did a guest radio show on Radio Solent with Steve Harris.
Neil grew up in the 70s and 80s, finding their musical family at the legendary Le Phonographic (The Phono) in Leeds, it was here they fist found acceptance as a non-binary person however the language at the time didn’t exist. Since then they have gone on to broaden their musical tastes beyond goth and post […]
