I joined the Shire Sounds team after a long conversation with Charlie as I wanted to give my experience, knowledge and time to help them grow the radio station for Kettering and the surrounding community. I admire the passion that the team bring to the radio and it’s been great helping the station grow to become the leading radio station in Kettering. After a couple of months, I HAD to get behind the sound desk and present a show.
