My name is Ellen, I was born in Gibraltar but have lived in Oxfordshire for most of my life. I’m currently studying media at college. I’ve always been interested in radio and I’m a massive fan of most genres of music especially Pop and the culture that comes with it.

I’m a musician, mostly playing bass and lead guitar, starting in West Oxon based rock band Sweet FA in the 80s and more recently in West Oxon Hip-Hop/Dance band Death of Hi Fi along with fellow Witney Radio presenter Andy Hill. In between I’ve worked with artists of all genres and produced music for myself and others.
 

My name is Jenny.  I recently moved up to Oxfordshire, putting behind me, my 25 whirlwind years of living and working in London.  I am now partially retired and enjoying the pleasure of a much more relaxed pace of life with time to make new friends, do some volunteering work and pursuing my love of music.

I am Grant, otherwise known as Mr G, I moved to Witney 15 years ago from Cornwall. I was always the one at school with the mix tapes and have the most eclectic taste in music of anyone I know. I like to think I look like Matt Damon but I know it’s Norman Wisdom really!

I am Graham I was born in Combe in 1964 living there most of my life. 
I've worked in Eynsham for the same company for 26 years. 
I've been playing with the band Freefall for the past 33 years and started playing drums at the age of 18. 

I'm a multimedia journalism student at Bournemouth University whose interest is to create enjoyable, well-produced radio shows showing off a wide variety of music. I play in a local band called Fallen Angels, so we might see you in a Witney pub soon!

I am Colin Dickenson( not Dickinson) and I came to live in Oxfordshire in 1989 when with my wife I bought the 'Woodman Inn' pub in North Leigh.  
 
Selling that in 2004 I started a new career as an 'Asbestos Surveyor' and recently retired so I now have plenty of time to devote to my programme at Witney Radio.

I HAVE BEEN INTERESTED IN SCIENCE SINCE I WAS A KID. I AM SLIGHTLY UNUSUAL AMONG SCIENTISTS IN THAN I AM A GENERALIST, I HATE THE PIGEON HOLING OF SCIENCE INTO BOXES. HENCE I AM INTERESTED IN EVERYTHING FROM METEOROLOGY, ASTRONOMY, GEOLOGY, MATHS, CHEMISTRY, PHYSICS AND BIOLOGY AND EVERYTHING THAT CONNECTS THEM.

Mark was born and raised in South London in an age when TV only had three channels and came in two colours - black and white.  He moved to West Oxfordshire 28 years ago when his firm relocated him and decided he rather liked it round here and would stay when he left the company.

I am a Sinophile and have lived briefly in China. I am still grappling with Mandarin (especially the handwriting!) My curiosity for music is insatiable, so I am grateful for the chance to share my findings with others.
