Chris Marsden is a Voice Actor, Broadcaster and Audio Specialist and hosts the Movie Soundtrack Show.
I spent 4 years as a presenter at Rugby Hospital Radio, doing a 60s and 70s show on Wednesdays, and Requests on Fridays and specials at weekends, including being part of a 48 hour live marathon playing all of the number ones of the 60s and 70s.
Nicky is thrilled to have been given the opportunity to have her very own radio show and can’t wait to welcome a whole host of musical guests.
I think I can bring something fresh to the project. I saw in your bio that Rugby Radio will be a community station. If the key word is ‘community’, then I’d like to provide something that represents all aspects of the town, as well as treating it to sounds and experiences that expand beyond its realms.
Debbie Bannigan; Mountains, Oceans, Parliament and now Rugby Radio!
My first job, after leaving college in 1988, was working at Signal Radio in Stoke on Trent. Since then I have worked at various radio stations in Coventry, Tamworth, Wolverhampton, Wrexham and Birmingham. As well as presenting shows, I have been the voice of traffic and travel on many stations across the country and have even reported the information live from a plane flying over the towns and cities.
Briefly, my radio experience included ten years at the BBC in London, working for Factuall & Learning, in the Arts Unit and then moving to specialise in Music programmes, which included making the UK Top 40 and working on Top Of The Pops Radio Show, which is still going! This was for the World Service and I was on air reporter as well as assistant producer and researcher on the show,
Presenting Smooth Jazz & Soulful Grooves will bring to the Rugby listeners the very best tracks from the last 30 years or so, blending some of the top instrumental and classic vocal songs from these genres.
