Mick the Mod

As a youngster I was brought up on rock and roll music having two older sisters who lived for dancing to the music of the day. Later, my interest in music grew steadily from listening to all the Pirate Radio Stations, and I began DJ- ing in the seventies using vinyl records. I was eager to listen to all genres of music, but my first love will always be rock and roll!

I moved from vinyl to CD and my DJ- ing work moved into the clubs, pubs, private parties and weddings around the Basingstoke area, and I enjoyed every minute.

I moved to Brittany, France in 2008 and set up a DJ-ing business with my wife, working mainly for British ex-pats providing wedding and party music.  We have also raised a substantial amount of money for the charity Medecins Sans Frontiere by doing discos, a charity that we personally support. At the end of the day it is all about my love of the music, and where would we be without it!!​

I am a professional hairdresser with ma​ny years experience and curren​tly have a hair studio in Le Dorat in France. My passion for working in the hair industry started when I was fourteen where I was privileged to train and work for many years in the Vidal Sassoon studios. This took me onto New York where I could indulge in my love of Soul music. It was there I met many of the greatest artists of all time, Barry White, Alexander O’Neil, Luther Vandross to name but a few. Soul music is timeless, love songs, dance music, everyone has a favourite that jogs a precious memory.

Born in Essex near the coast my earliest memories of popular music was from the pirate radioships that were anchored nearby (Radio Caroline (south) and Radio London in the mid 1960's.

From listening to the output from these stations my interest in popular music was begun.

Over the years I have been attracted and introduced to many different genres of music and now with my involvement with Timeout Radio I have the opportunity to share my love of the music that has been the soundtrack to my life both in the UK and now here in Brittany.

I hope to be able to introduce listeners to an eclectic mix of music as diverse as Prog Rock, Folk, Heavy Rock, Jazz and Classical and that you will find my shows stimulating. In order to further that aim I will be introducing some music quiz themes

I look forward to talking to you over the internet and trust that as well as playing some music that may be unfamiliar to you there will be a good selection of well known tracks.

Requests for your favourites are most welcome.

Hi my name is Tony

Born in the 60's grew up in the 70's and 80's (before the stop the fun police brigade) and the radio or record player was always on in our house whilst growing up.

So, I have been influenced mainly by my mum and dad's music taste. I like music from jazz to rock, and have a big vinyl record collection, but my favourite era of music is the 60's and 70's.

I was brought up in Berkshire and now live in Dorset. I have been volunteering at the local hospital radio station collecting and playing the patients requests which are very varied from classical to heavy metal and all in-between. I love music as something new can be discovered everyday no matter how old or new it is.





Born in the fifties, grew up in the sixties and hit my teens in the seventies, music entered my life when my grandmother bought me a transistor radio for my 7th birthday. I listened to Luxembourg, Caroline and Radio1, when we, as a family, moved to London I went to the Old Kent Road market where found my first record deck and bought my first 7", following a move to Swindon I discovered the LP which I collected avidly. I eventually settled in South Oxfordshire where I joined a local youth club which had a disco workshop and thus began a life DJing, I started my own mobile in 1984 which continued until 2003. I then was co opted to a youth club committee a club attended by my children, at my suggestion the club began a disco workshop, things had come full circle.

I now live in Brittany France with my partner, 3 dogs, 7 cats, 2 horses and 6 goats, I must be mad!!!! From time to time I have a hankering to be 'at the decks' again but the rigors of running a mobile no longer appeal and then up pops Time Out Radio!! My taste in music is very eclectic which I describe as liking Black Sabbath to Beethoven and everything in between!!

Have lived in Brittany for 12 years now, moving over a few years after leaving the Royal Navy in 2001.
 Originally from Bournemouth, I joined up the day Elvis died on 16th Aug 1977. 
Served on HMS Newcastle, Southampton, Phoebe, Ark Royal, Invincible, & Liverpool, visiting
 56 countries in a highly enjoyable career that I still miss.
 With all those long periods at sea, a hobby was needed, and I started broadcasting on the ships internal radio system,
 playing the music of the day, which was piped to all the ships compartments.
 During The Falklands war of 1982, I was on HMS Southampton, where we had a tie up with BBC Radio Solent in a two way request show
 which went out every Sunday lunchtime whilst we were deployed.

 Music influences are varied. Being a teenager in the late 70's saw me pass through a punk rock stage, which the Navy shook out of me as they were not keen on the haircut.
Then a "New Romantic", which gave me an excuse to get an earring and go ashore looking like a pirate.
To be honest I am a fan of all genres of music. Give me anything from the early Rock 'N' Roll years 'till the mid 90's, and now I have recently discovered "Modern Blue Grass". 

Whatever it is, I hope you enjoy the shows.
