I joined Hospital Radio Burnley in 1995 after being in a mixture of bands, groups, trios and duos for 27 years. I decided to settle down and the natural progression was radio broadcasting. I have two children??? (36 and 34)..Wendy and Dean and 4 grandchildren...Konnor, Blake and Olivia and Jamie Leigh.
Although I have taken up broadcasting again, I still keep my hand in with the band 'Badger Sett' which includes my old mates Peter Yates (Lead Guitar and Vocals), Graham Rendell (Bass Guitar and harmony vocals) myself (Drums and other percussion instruments and harmony vocals) and my grandson Konnor Sisson (Rythmn Guitar). Every so often we get together and raise much needed cash for not so well known charities and good causes...watch for the name....Badger Sett!
...I think that's what keeps me looking so young....
I became the treasurer of Hospital Radio Burnley in 1999, I progressed to studio manager. Sorting out the rabble at the studios and kept the website looking prim and proper.
Unfortunately, because of ward closures at Burnley General...we found we were entertaining about eight patients and with £65.000+ worth of equipment to maintain it just wasn't viable...so In January 2013...reluctantly...we pulled the plug!
I signed up for Radio Hospitals Blackburn in January 2014 because I can't do without my radio fix...Tune in Tuesdays and Thursdays and enjoy listening to my programmes....
