Here is where our presenters information will appear as and when they arrive
Hi I am Mal Williams
I first became a radio presenter when I joined Venture Radio in early April 2010.
I brought to the station a show called “The Music Zone. The show continues today in various forms now across other internet radio stations too.
I have lived in the county of Kent in the UK all my life from where I present my show from one of the Kent studios.
I would very much like to welcome you to the newly formed www.xlrradio.co.uk that I co- own that came on the air in June 2017. I hope you can join me when you can tune in by the various means that are available and listed on the stations web site.
I enjoy good modern music and music from the early years when I remember when pirate radio stations were on the air and all at sea.
Welcome to the Music Zone and look forward to welcoming you soon to one of my shows..
I'm Married with two children,I now live in Oxfordshire after growing up in
Kent where most of my family still live.
I have always loved listening to
all kinds music and will always have a radio on somewhere.
Radio broadcasting has been something that I had thought about,
and believed one day I may achieve being on air.
Join me for my Show "Music, Then and Now" here on XLR radio Every Monday from 7pm until 8pm. I will be playing great music from 60's up to the present day

You can catch me on the Fabulous 90’s every Thursday from 6-8pm, and on the Sunday Sessions every Sunday from 8-10pm, I broadcast from the Scotland Studio, along side some of our other Scottish Presenters.
The Lazy B Story…
Born at a very young age in Bournville, Birmingham, England. I attended Raddlebarn Junior & Infants School, followed by Selly Oak Boys. After School most evenings you would find Lil’ LB working in my local butchers shop ? Chopping his meat on the block and amazing all the customers with his chunky lean chops and big portions! (and mopping the floor too) *sob*Junior LB made his move to Radio by joining Hospital Radio (BHBN) and after excelling soon found myself as a tech Op @ Birmingham’s BRMB. soon moved on and after freelancing at various stations in the midlands including Kix96, WM, Xtra Am & WYVN, Birmingham’s Buzz FM, (not to mention dabbling in Pirate Radio). Buzz FM was a local was a local station that was suffering financial problems and had found itself in danger of going bankrupt (yet again) and was only days away from disappearing from the airwaves of Birmingham ?I made my move from Radio to TV and worked on such programmes as Dalziel & Pascoe, Casualty, The Bill, TFI Friday, Eastenders, Dr Who and many, many other dramas, mostly for the BBC, including “Hotel Babylon” and Torchwood!
You can catch the great Lazy B Every Sunday Night at 10pm Here on XLR Radio!
Craigyboy is a 31-year-old that has done many years in radio for many different stations. One thing Craig is really fussy about is the quality of the sound his show brings. A huge amount of time
(and money!) has been spent ensuring we make the best sound possible. Most of the imaging (jingles) you hear on the show has been made by Craigyboy himself ensuring the whole show package is tailored
to suit Craigyboy style.
So more about Craig, well he lasted one day at Hospital Radio, let's just say there are a few 'chancers' in that field! I am really hands on and I couldn't cope with starting from the bottom, that is what you get for spending many years messing about with computers and radio equipment teaching yourself I suppose!One thing I have taken from all this, is that radio is a very hard game to get into! I hold my hands up to anyone that has got a job in radio. I'm lucky in a way as I've got support from some great people and friends who, like me, have all tried different things in radio to further their career. My best friend Aaron has been a massive part of this setup and technical parts. He is a fellow presenter and a self-confessed computer geek(!). He is the man who hosts the show technical side & website plus my 'go to' guy when I need to discuss the next steps of furthering the show. For that reason, I owe him a massive thank you!
Right enough about me, if you want to know more please ask, I don't bite(!). I am LIVE every Saturday here on XLR Radio at 8pm
Hi my name's Daz, also known as Dazman and I joined XLR Radio in June 2017.
I come from Kent in the South-East of England where I have lived all my life.
As well as listening to music my other hobby is campanology!
I've loved playing music since I was very young & love all kinds of music from the
50's to today.
I especially like the 60's & 80's pop as well as liking for Irish folk group Clannad
Coming into radio has been a long awaited ambition of mine to be a presenter/DJ.
If you like a good variety of music then feel free to listen to my shows as I tend to
play a bit of everything.
XLR Radio was looking for a presenter who was smart, had a good vocabulary, a sense of humor and had tons of charisma. Instead we got Big Bob, a native of Detroit, Motown , Michigan. Bob's Memory
Lane show features "Old Time Rock & Roll" along with charted hits from the 50's 60's and 70's, including one hit wonders and covers. Bob's database contains charted tunes from a variety of
Bob says, "We just don't play songs, we play memories. Before we had cell phones, before there were CD-ROMS, before microwave ovens dictated what we ate, and before SUV's emptied our wallets, wasn't life much simpler? If you remember the Motown Sound, Drive-in Movies, and Cruising your Main Street, then sit back, listen, enjoy, and reminisce with the tunes that will never die!"
Larry Kratka is the host and producer of Nothing But Old 45s and a seasoned U.S. broadcaster that has literally PLAYED most of the songs you hear on the show when he was on the air at radio
stations from Massachusetts to Florida. The Connecticut native was the kid who would be playing records at school
dances and that translated to a long career in broadcasting and as a mobile DJ. Among the many radio stations he has worked at are WBEC-AM-FM and WUPE-AM-FM in Pittsfield, MA where he spent 28 years on the air. In his spare time, Larry is a ham radio operator who has contacted people all over the world. He is also a card-carrying member of the National Weather Service “Skywarn” program and has used his ham radio station in emergency situations several times. He is also an award-winning photographer with a number of photo exhibitions to his credit.

Gary started his DJ career back in the days when half a dozen singles from Saturday Night Fever were guaranteed to fill the dance floor. Hospital radio beckoned in the early 1990s before community
radio tempted him out of retirement. Gary's shows can now be heard on stations around the globe.
My Generation - the 60s show is probably the world's first ever online 60s show, starting as it did in 1996, and regularly features exclusive interviews with 60s stars such as Dave Clark, Stu Cook (Creedence) and Tom McGuinness (Manfred Mann). Part One of My Generation can be heard on Big L International on a Monday evening at 10pm with Part Two at the same time Tuesday evening.

Hello! My name is John Farmery and I've have always had an interest
in radio, right from the early Sixties, when I listened to Radio Luxembourg and Pick of The Pops, with the late great Alan Freeman.
I was a teenager during the Sixties and a Twenty something during
the Seventies. Those two decades were the most exciting times to be young..plenty of jobs and money. Now I am left with the memories.. My two shows, The Sixties Express and The Seventies Show, which you can listen to on this great Radio Station, allow me to play some of the greatest music ever made by iconic artists. Please join me and share the great music!

Chris Tucker here but everyone calls me Tuc.
I started in Hospital Radio over 40 years ago and now,after following a career in entertainmens,I am settled on the East Coast of England with my Rose,2 grown up children and 3 amazing grandchildren. I returned to my radio roots some 4 years ago and enjoy producing and presenting various genre of music,mixed with jovial banter.
It all started in 1971 .. After the usual apprenticeship 'on the road' I must have been doing something right because in the space of a year I found myself selling the mobile disco kit, the van and associated bits and pieces to work for two radio stations, now defunct - (I must be a jinx!) in the South of England. From there I was engaged by an entertainment agency as a DJ/Presenter/Compere and even a presenter for HRB .. a Hospital Radio Broadcasting company in the East of England .. That too was rewarding and fun. One highlight that will forever be a fond memory was meeting, and working with the ‘Emperor Rosko’ at a gig. Coming in second place was just fine when ‘doing it’ with the great man. He’s still going strong so there’s hope for me yet!
Keep on groovin, Best wishes.
