Hey, I am Aaron and I am 36. I have had years of experience in Radio and I suppose it is now in my blood.

I started back in 1996, when I setup the first Youth Radio Station in the UK called City Youth Radio. (Sadly no longer broadcasting)

We broadcast from “a broom cupboard” at our local Youth Centre on ISDN, (for those of you who remember ISDN) City Youth Radio continued to broadcast up until 2001

when the Youth Centre closed.

I had a team of 25 Young People working on the station and it was a right shame that the station had to close.

I then went on to volunteer on Progress FM near Redhill and did a stint on there for a couple of years.

Following that, I moved to Hospital Radio and began my Hospital Radio Circuit at Radio St Helier in Sutton, where on my 1st solo show,

I mispronounced Dido on air! (WHOOOOPS!) I got away with it and that was where Nice n’ Easy was born from. (regarding Dido, add a L and u will know what I accidentally blurted out!)

From there, I was involved in a few Internet  stations, (Boost Radio, Tower Sound, Reach On Air and Flash Hitz Radio) until in 2010,

I joined the now debunked Radio Victoria at Blackpool Victoria Hospital, where I presented a show on a Sunday and Monday. (Yup Nice n’ Easy)

I was at Radio Vic for around 2 years and then went on to do a year at Preston Hospital Radio.

Then in 2013, Jim, my late Mother Rachel and a couple of my friends founded Shout Radio.

So here we are almost 6 years later and Shout is still going strong, with a small army of volunteers and great music 24 \ 7!
