Douglas Lunn

Co founder of County Linx Radio

 

 

Having set up Radio Stations here there and everywhere, been in broadcasting for many years with the BBC as a freelance Broadcasting Engineer (camera & Sound), mainly abroad in some Dangerous situations, the odd Wimbledon, chasing Politicians etc. training young engineers in the way of correct set up!

For many years I had a PPL and flew the odd Helicopter Inc Air Ambulance and a Jet Ranger with the ID of G-WIZZ.

Ill health seems to have curtailed many things, but with many peoples help, slowly returning to some, including this project from day one, teaching ITC to mature students, those that listen! Seem to help down at Irby & Bratoft village hall usually with a camera and perhaps a microphone.

Want to find out how to help us, get in touch.

Barrie Haynes

Presenter

 

“I chat away for 15 mins in ‘Barrie’s Week’ about every subject
under the Sun. A bit ‘off the wall’ I can be silly and serious at the
same time, a unique slice of radio.
On ‘A Little Night Music’ I speak to listeners around the world about
a piece of music that is played at the end of the programme.
I’m an old Tour Bus Driver/Guide/Holiday Rep who’s been around a
bit and I never ever use a script! Since retiring I’ve lived in Poole,
Dorset and work voluntary for the Alzheimer’s Society and a major
local charity for the disabled. I’m a Past President of the Lions Club
of Bournemouth and a failed author, having three novels presently for
sale on Amazon.
Catch me for Barrie’s Week 22.00 Fridays (rep. 13.00 Saturday)
And for A Little Night Music, tune in Mon-Fri 22.00

 

I hope you will listen in.

 

Barrie's Week 13.00GMT every Saturday.

Bob Birch

Presenter

 

Being a child of the 50s and 60s; I grew up with the legends that were coming out of the radio at that time...... The start of my Love Affair with the radio!


Like most of today's presenters; I spent many satisfying hours working on Hospital Radio gaining valuable experience.

I was born and raised in Leicestershire and I'm now based in the beautiful North East area of the England where I now produce Radio Programmes for various Radio Stations around the world, both on-line and terestrial FM/AM
 
Outside of radio, my other great love is the Ukulele and a member of The George Formby Society and the Ukulele Society of Great Britain.

Jay Smedley

Presenter

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catapulted into the real world from a convent education and remains bewildered. Thirty plus years of the Civil Service have done nothing to improve this situation and a trail of muddle and confusion remains in her wake throughout the Ministry of Defence, Department of Transport, Scottish Office and, finally, the Prison Service. Spent an enjoyable time with the Talking Newspapers in both Ilkeston and Skegness.

 

Now lives in chaos in a Lincolnshire outback

 

Hobbies: Anything to do with motorcycles, writing weird stories and poetry, and, now, County Linx radio!

 

Dislikes: Bullies, rude people and beetroot.

 

Loves:    Friends, animals and bananas, probably, but not necessarily, in that order.

John Sharp

Presenter

 

I grew up in Rochdale where my initial love of R & B music developed into my becoming an out and out soulie, and also a scooter boy. I have a wealth of life experiences which contribute to some amusing stories/facts about my life as a mod.

I have a passion for helping people with disabilities to participate in activities and sport and I am currently the Chairman of Louth Disability Activities Forum, from which grew Louth Jaguars wheelchair basketball club where I still coach. I am also a national league wheelchair basketball referee.

I am also a mad classic car collector as well as a magpie for any unusual collectables.

Marty Wilson

Presenter 

 

I have been in the music/performing business since the age of 8, starting in the Church Choir, piano lessons started at the same time, getting to Grade 5 Royals Schools of Music.
I remember distinctly, my piano teacher telling me when I had a yearn to play electric guitar in 1964, that the Beatles wouldn’t last, famous last words!
My Mum was pivotal in shaping my career in good taste and appreciation of melodies; all I do is down to you Mum.
The legacy of all this early insight into quality music have given me a great appreciation of all genres of music, which I feature in my career as a singer/musician/performer, and have done now for 52 years, providing my own stamp on the song choice I use, and something I want to bring to my listeners at CLR.
Two highlights of my career were singing live on BBC Radio 2, with John Hanson, and appearing live on stage with one of my guitar heroes Jet Harris, founder member of The Shadows.
My other business outside of Music, which incidentally, I dropped into, was, a love of Sales Marketing.
I started at Guinness Plastics Group in 1983, and I learned that I loved meeting clients, and eventually set up my own business in 1988, which I run to this day, however, music is always my first love.
I want to bring to CLR my own style of presenting, chat, marketing, working alongside a fantastic, highly qualified team, and take the station through the next decade, by providing a great service, not only in the studio, but in our mobile studio, taking our station to outlying areas, educating and entertaining, serving our listeners and residents, providing quality daily entertainment.
Looking forward to entertaining you on Sunday nights 8-10 on my Sunday Night Spectacular.

Chris Hunter
Presenter
 
Born and raised in Nottingham, I spent many an hour listening to GEM AM. This was my mother’s influence. This is where I started to appreciate music and in particular, the 60s and 70s. I have a very eclectic taste in music which is slightly bias towards Queen, this is my father’s fault. I can appreciate rock, pop, opera, rhythm and blues, Motown and country. Unfortunately I am tone deaf and I can’t play an instrument but I can appreciate the effort that people put into entertaining us.
My radio career started a couple of years ago when I joined a like minded community Non-profit-making station. We had great ambitions and great plans but we didn’t have deep enough pockets or enough hours on the clock, so we had to abandon those plans. A good friend of mine put me in touch with CLR and I haven’t looked back since.
I broadcast my show, Hunter’s Happy Hour, between 8 and 10pm on Saturday evenings playing the best of the 60s and 70s. I have themes most weeks to keep it interactive and there are CLR points up for grabs too. If you can’t join me on Saturday evenings, (why not?) you can catch up on Tuesdays between 6 and 8pm, or anytime on mixcloud.
