The BIG Show
Sundays 4pm to 6pm
Each week I feature either one or two artists/bands, or I go with a theme around a particular year. I sometimes go quite in-depth on research of an artist or band. I like to promote new talent, especially local musicians within the styles of music I play. The show covers rock, melodic rock, blues, soul & selective pop music. Rap is not covered on this show. Comedy & fun are also part of the show. We have regular phone in characters who entertain the listeners. Every bank holiday weekend I'm joined by my other half, Mary. She brings along more fun & games to the show. Mary provides an hour of her music, and I bring an hour of mine, quite often clashing with humorous results! The Big Show is all about non-stop entertainment for the listeners. I do my best to liven up everyone's day. Requests and shout outs are encouraged.
I was so keen to be a musician, ever since my dad bought me a second-hand piano. Unable to afford piano lessons, I self-taught to play, out of frustration. I love singing and creating harmonies. I wrote my first song when I was 16. I Joined many bands over the years, eventually passing an audition to join London rock band "Mother's Ruin" as lead vocalist. Over the next 3 years we recorded 3 singles and our first album with Spectra records. We toured with Dire Straits, Motorhead & Ian Drury to mention a few. I now share a small studio with M.R. Guitarist, Malcolm Jones; we now write songs together as "Nathan-Jones". We record with real instruments only, no computers, just blood sweat & beers! Our music's online at bandcamp.com My musical heroes are the Beatles, Beach Boys, Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Genesis, Foreigner etc. I worked on Cruise ships for ten years, moving to Milton Keynes in 2006 with my wife & three cats. I joined CRMK radio in 2017 and I've now presented over 130 shows. It's quite nice being on both sides of the fence!
