Originally from Liverpool, Gav moved to the area in the mid 90s and decided he liked it so much he was going to stay. Quickly starting as a DJ, his love of music and entertainment grew and the radio bug bit.
After filling a spare room in his house with CD's and vinyl and being told by his girlfriend that he should really get rid of a few so she could have somewhere to do her keep fit he decided to join a local community radio station. He stayed there for a number of years and learnt that he could talk for a living and not get told to shut up, it was then that he was offered a position on Compass FM - the rest is history!
You can hear him obsessing over cakes and telling stories of his many adventures with one of his 6 (yes 6!) Pugs. He thinks the greatest invention ever was the idea you could make cakes to look like pugs!
