World Radio Day

The 13th February is World Radio Day. It is a day where people around the world celebrate radio and how it shapes their lives.

Radio was a big part of my life for nine years.  My first ‘real’ job (and you will get the pun shortly) was working in radio.  At age 16 I did work experience in the promotional crew, and by age 18 had a full-time job at Real Radio Wales, part of the Guardian Media Group.

I am sat on the floor next to a good friend Ellie (I may or may not be a bit tipsy), celebrating becoming Station of the Year 2007 and my team were thrilled to be announced as Group Team of the Year. I can name everyone in this photo too!
