Swansbrook’s hard man of news will be interrogating our politicians, councillors and publicans in his
relentless quest for the truth. Stuart learned all about Broadcasting at the BBC and was a top
reporter with a number of national stations before returning to his original career in law - our very
own legal eagle.
Stuart presents and produces “The Broadsheet” and “In Conversation” as well as coordinating the
station’s factual output and organising the schedules.
Ian has worked in broadcasting since the world began. For years the voice of “disgusted of
Tunbridge Wells” on BBC Points of View, he’s worked on both sides of the microphone and camera,
is an actor and playwright and currently works as a voiceover artist. Known up and down the land
for his cheerful catch phrase “I’m off to the pub”.
Ian produces and presents his weekly “Happy Hour”, reports on goings on and looks after
Born in 1944, Colin came through the birth of ‘Pop’ , starting with Rock’n’Roll, as we know it. He
made his first broadcast in December of 1964 on Radio City, a pirate station and later in 1970
joined BBC Radio Medway (later Kent), being their ‘first guest DJ’. Colin now brings his vast
experience and musical knowledge to Swansbrook.
Colin produces and presents his “Golden Age of Pop” programmes airing daily on Swansbrook.
Chris is a native of Solihull but came to the calmer waters of Feckenham in 2006. She was a lead
presenter on the experimental FM broadcasts we made under our former name of W.A.K.E FM.
She’s an experienced chorister having sung with the London Hospitals combined choirs in the Albert
Hall and Festival Hall when she was working at Great Ormond Street in the 70’s - this, combined
with her encyclopedic knowledge of “serious” music makes Chris the ideal producer/presenter for
our “Classical Swansbrook” show.
Dr.Paul is the caring voice of Swansbrook. Known for his work with bees and a love of big cigars. Dr
Paul is constantly on the move and will be reporting from exotic locations throughout the Shire. If
it’s touchy feely Dr Paul will be there touching it and feeling it and if it needs probing Dr Paul’s
probe will be primed. It’s not clear what sort of Doctor he is but It’s widely believed that he has an
ology of some sort.
Paul presents and produces “In Conversation” as well as special events and large projects
