What Richard Played Check out which songs Richard played!


Grimsby born lad; little did the Nunsthorpe maternity home quite know what they would become responsible for! He enjoyed a diverse working life before moving into commercial radio on a full-time basis in the late nineties although his first experience of radio began in 1988 when he made his debut behind the microphone at Grimsby Hospital Radio. Richard loves waking up North East Lincolnshire, however if he could change anything about his job, he says it would be the 3.30am alarm call!  Having said that however, the thought of waking up Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Immingham makes him jump out of bed!

Amongst his favourite TV is classic 80s stuff like CHiPs and the A-Team and any period dramas (like Downton Abbey)!   He enjoys music from James Taylor to Ladysmith Black Mambazo and usually anything in between.

Richard is married to Giles and has 3 dogs (Ashton, Kutcher and Zac!). He’s been with Compass FM since its inception and he's proud that he’s part of the team on a station that’s just for North East Lincolnshire.
