About Chris

Hello, thanks for visiting. I’m a radio presenter and producer, with particular interests in comedy, science and electronic music. I’d like to combine the three, but it’s been an elusive format so far...

I trained in presenting at Radio Facilities (Hammersmith, London) and learned production at Morley College (Lambeth, London). The good folk at Resonance 104.4FM took me on an internship, and asked me to make a pilot. I went with comedy rather than electronica or science, and created a show called Newsprov. I’m still a volunteer engineer at Resonance, and am responsible for all the output on FM across London between 20:00 and 24:00 on Wednesdays.

A short while later, some Americans from DC asked me to be the London Arts Correspondent for the maDCap podcast. I’ve interviewed DJ’s, musicians and record label executives for them.

The first series of Newsprov aired in May/June 2015 on FM in London. I’m interviewing interesting people in music and the arts on an ongoing freelance basis for maDCap.

I’m always interested in talking to and meeting people in radio. There’s a little box down there you can use to get in touch.
