A recent article in The Guardian highlighted that with the syndication of so many commercial stations it’s becoming more and more difficult for aspiring DJs to get broadcasting experience and work their way into the radio industry, increasingly it’s a case of if you want to get involved in radio you have to be driven by a passion to do it. This is what radio is to me, more than just any ordinary interest or pastime, radio has become almost a compulsion. It’s this love for radio that has driven …

When I was at school I couldn’t get enough of the Prodigy and it was the summer before I started 6th form that The Fat of the Land was released (1997).
