Between 2008 and 2010, I co-produced a fortnightly arts and culture show on Roundhouse Radio (www.roundhouseradio.org.uk) called Arts Attack. As well as researching, producing and presenting a variety of features on everything from TV to theatre I had the chance to interview Armando Iannucci, controller of BBC Three Danny Cohen, Andy Nyman, Jeremy Dyson and even The Lancashire Hotpots. The unquestionable highlights of my time on Arts Attack were presenting an entire show from the top of the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square as part of Antony Gormley’s One and Other project and in May 2010 when my interview with Armando Iannucci was syndicated to BBC7.
For many years I was involved with UCL’s student radio station, Rare FM (www.rarefm.co.uk) when I presented a variety of music and chat based shows including Joe’s Hangover Cure (2004-05) and Bono Thinks I’m Special (2005-07). I also joined the Some News Or Something team in 2006, co-presenting the show and producing the weekly podcast. Some News took a sideways look at the important issues of the day through the eyes of the tabloid newspapers. Old shows and the podcast feed can be found at www.rarefm.co.uk/somenews. I was elected to the position of Station Manager for 2005-06 and led the station through a two week broadcast on 87.7FM in Central London in September 2005.
I have also presented on IC Radio‘s (www.icradio.com) leading science magazine show, The Science Sandwich (2008) and before entering the world of university radio, I presented a nightly show, Joe & Stu’s Rhythm of the Night (2004) on Waddecar FM (www.waddecarfm.co.uk), a 10-day RSL based at an international Scout Jamboree in Lancashire.
Clips may emerge online at some point. Oooh, the excitment.
