This is going to be fun. I’m going to be a DJ on the radio once again. It’s a guest spot, one week only (well four nights) and I’m really looking forward to it. Radio is where I started out 29 years and eight months ago at Downtown Radio. This time I’m going to be on U105. But it’s little like going back to an old mates reunion. Almost all the presenters are old friends and colleagues from Downtown, BBC and UTV. Maurice Jay – the head of programmes used to live 100 yards from me.
So I don’t feel like a stranger, and that makes a big difference. But studios have changed. The old desk I used to drive in Downtown has been offered to a museum. Vinyl out – CDs pretty rare and there are three or four screens instead of turn-tables.
Naturally, you can listen online – but you need to use a Northern Ireland post code – something like BT28HQ.
