Ken started his broadcasting “career” in hospital radio at Radio North
Angus around 1993. He was a PA to the main DJ and was responsible
for the usual tea making and getting records from the library, as well as
reading out the top 40 charts on air. He was fired from RNA for
allegedly stealing a Michael Bolton CD (true story!). He didn’t steal it, of
course, as he has taste, but the boss never liked him much anyway so
balls to him. His next adventure in radio was Select 107 in Whitehaven
(“Whitehaven and West Coast Cumbria’s Home Of The Hits”) in 1999.
He was a Studio Manager and presenter of a few shows on the station,
which lasted a month as the station was an RSL (Restricted Service
Licence), including the ill-fated 3-6am graveyard shift when absolutely
nobody was listening. He then drifted into holiday camp entertaining
and eventually found himself on t’radio, playing the tunes you secretly
love but would never admit to in public.
