Here is my demo that I produced last year of various Idents / Jingles that I have made for people, so it probably needs updating.

Hey, I know your voice very well. I have done lots with Hallam FM and Magic 828 over the years. Small world!

You don't need me to tell you how good you sound. Very professional and I would certainly add you to our voice over list.

Hi,

Alas if only, I'm just a producer but do work with and have met a few of the artists over the years as well as having been a Presenter (drivetime) on a local community radio station.

You Probably recognise Simon Hirst's voice in there he was the former presenter of the Big Drive Home on Hallam FM back in the late 90's. I have however considered giving V.O work a tryout but thats on the back burner at the moment as I am currently producing work for a firm in Leeds that provides Rock and Roll Bingo and Simon Hirst does the lines for that project.

I won't link to the site here in case that is against the rules or if it looks like a spamvert but they are in Morley and you can hear their details in the demo.

Oh, you confused me now. So the demo is not you, but a mixture of others that you have produced?

I worked with Roger Kirk, another famous ex Hallam presenter in the mid 80's.

Yes sorry, just a producer at the moment but as mentioned I have considered getting in to the V.O field but having fun producing at the moment which stems from being a small boy and growing up listening to music then listening to DJ's mixing, I became self employed as a DJ in '97 but experience dates back to 1990.

During that time I did the whole community radio station thing as a Presenter doing 13 RSL's etc at two different stations, and when I did my Radio Broadcast Skills and Presenting course that is where I met Simon Hirst a few times.

The station management noticed my skills mixing and asked me to produce some jingles, it was then that every man and his dog started asking for them so I thought that was a natural step to progress.

I joined another another website similar to this where I met Carl Kingstone (formerly of Radio Aire in the 80's amongst other stations) and he introduced me to Mark at Rock and Rock Bingo in Leeds etc and things are and have taken off from there, in amongst producing material for various other people.

I confuse myself sometimes :confused:

LOL. It is a very small world in radio.

I owned a flat in Scotland. The flat above me was owned by a young chap who used to practice DJ'ing all day every day. His name? Jeff Graham - yes, THAT Jeff Graham, of Radio Luxemburg fame etc.

I made that as part of a spoof ad for Radio Daddy as they were teasing about everyone on the Internet being the No.1 Station :thumbup:

Great work !


Broadcast Skills and Presenting course that is where I met Simon Hirst a few times.

Hirsty is a very talented guy and one of a number of people who learned their craft at Radio Aire, Chirs Moyles being another.


I joined another another website similar to this where I met Carl Kingstone
Another mainstay of the old Radio Aire team and one of the nicest guys in the business. Any advice Carl gives will be first class.

I used to listen to Carl on Radio Aire back in the mid 80's when I was but a spotty 15 year old :D

Its quite possible, although if I recall correctly I think Peter Levy was on before Carl at Lunchtime. I probably should have been in School at that time :D
