Additional Info

Our Sid, always on hand to spread a smile and an invaluable member of the team.

I started DJing in 1979 as the resident at The Royal Oak in Ormesby where I spent two very happy and fun filled years. Since then I have covered and Co-DJ’d at various clubs & bars in the area. Even now I am still active with my own entertainments business playing the tunes as and where required for all types of events.

I first started in radio back in 1980 with Radio Yare, a hospital radio station and very quickly found a passion for the medium of radio. Since then My entertainments business has taken me country wide for events and upon returning to this area found myself working back on Community Online Radio for three years.

Smart Radio is an exciting & fun adventure to be a part of and like everyone else, cannot wait to get started and broadcast to all you lovely people around the world as well as locally. Outside events have always been a speciality of mine so I’m sure I will be seeing lots of you when out and about with Smart!
