The Old Gits
John has been doing radio stuff since he was 18, starting with Hospital radio in Bristol before joining Bristol’s first commercial station, Radio West. From there he broadcasted on GWR, Classic Gold, the Eagle, Star Radio and BBC Radio in the West. John has presented all genres of music as well as speech formats from phone-ins to sport. He is also a live event commentator where his dulcet tones are heard at the Bristol Harbour Festival, The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and other major events across the country. He also likes to put a dress on each year to appear in pantomime!
