Colin started out his radio career on BBC Radio Leeds at the ‘ripe old age’ of 15 a week before leaving school, and then worked the clubs as everything from compere to bingo caller!
He joined Yorkshire Television in 1975 after being on several ‘not so legal stations’ in admin and did some stand-in work at Pennine Radio and Radio Aire, before doing a stint in Hospital Radio
In 1984 Colin moved to the North East of England to work at Tyne Tees TV, a station that didn’t stick to job descriptions – if there was a ‘Job’ to do, you did it… so he ended up doing everything
from Accountant to Continuity Announcer, and then made the move into Management and retired from Broadcasting as a senior Manager at ITV PLC in 2010.
Since then Colin has presented programmes on several Internet Stations. His music passions are wide and varied from Northern Soul to good old fashioned Rock Music.

Caroline first got involved with music and discos at the age of 13 at school.
She liked it so much, as soon as she could, she got her own equipment using the princes trust and started storm discos after that it moved onto angels entertainment and took on large venues for lady’s nights corporate events large charity events along with being resident dj in clubs in Nottingham and Eastbourne.
In 2010 she had all her equipment stolen for her lockup and had to start all over again after recovering from the theft she was doing some smaller discos to get the big show back on the road.
At that time she met craig who still had his disco in moth balls and persuaded him to let her join the two shows together and she was off again doing the shows she loved doing Craig at the time was doing shows for power radio and got her involved with the radio.

Robin Dee hosts “Robin Dee’s BIG Country”, a fast-paced show playing the very best in New Country and Country Rock from many new unsigned artists with their own original material.
Robin says, “It’s a barn-stormin’ dynamic show which only goes to prove that there’s a lot more to country music than songs about the crops failing, the dog dying, and Grandma being hit by a train! If a song’s got a pickup truck, a dusty road, and a beautiful girl in it, then it gets my vote!
“A little bit about me? How long have you got? Very briefly, a lifetime of experience in radio presentation and production over the years, beginning with hospital radio, then local commercial radio, progressing into internet radio which I have been very active in since 1999. All of this alongside my main careers of car salesman, used car dealership proprietor, retail petroleum equipment engineer, and finally, truck driver. Now retired, I can dedicate my time to my first love – radio!
“Music tastes? All 60s and 70s, the more obscure the better! But I like modern stuff too if it’s good. And of course ALL country. Just love it!
“Other interests? Radio, music, mountain biking, classic cars (own an MGB), dining out, oh – and did I say radio?
“Anyway, here’s a warm invitation to join me on “Robin Dee’s BIG Country”, where the coffee pot is ALWAYS on, there are huge helpings of Grandma’s home made apple pie, and if you’re really lucky, a shot of Grandpappy’s finest moonshine! Y’all call in now!”
Intro to Mouth Meltdown Fridays at 4pm
There’s nothing complicated about this show, it’s just me sharing some of my favourite tracks, having a bit of a chat and maybe dropping in one or two features as the mood takes me.
Typically I play popular music from the seventies onwards. Why “Mouth Meltdown”? Well, you’ll have to listen to find out!
Having lived “Down South” for most of my life, my roots are still firmly entrenched in the North East of England, among the beautiful countryside of the Durham and Yorkshire Dales.
I consider myself very lucky as when I was a child my Grandparents had a farm and I had an idyllic childhood as weekends were spent on the farm talking to the animals and playing on the farm machinery the health and safety police wouldn’t allow that these days!
Eventually I had to grow up and get a job. 🙁
At eighteen I joined the Fire Service where I made some great friends and, as you can imagine, had some very moving experiences.
Life has taken me many places since then, bringing me into radio at a pretty late stage in my life, however I enjoy it enormously, sharing my love of music with my audience and chatting about anything that comes into my head.
