About Mark

Other than playing music on Atom Radio what do you really do for a living?

Funnily enough I really do earn a living from being on the radio and doing live DJ work.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Maidenhead before moving to Slough 21 years ago

When you were growing up what did you want to be?

I saw Gary Davies doing a Radio 1 outside broadcast at the Ideal Home Show as a child. From that moment on I always wanted to be on the radio. If that didn’t work out then I wanted to play cricket for England (but that hasn’t as yet and therefore isn’t likely to work out)
