Hi, I'm Paul Bradders Bradshaw, and I've been involved in radio for 37 years from BBC to commercial to community stations. I joined NBR in 2020, and the managing directors offered me to join the management team as General Manager. With my experience and knowledge, I work as a vital team member to drive NBR to the next level.
I have been presenting shows on five different radio stations for 11 years, till' myself and two friends decided we would like to run our own station. We manage New Brighton Radio between five of us now. We are different from other stations as we are not playlisted and we let our presenters have cart blanch to produce and present their shows which brings their personalities and genre of music to the listener. We all go in 'LIVE' to the studio in Vale park and interact with our listeners, that’s what makes NBR different from other stations.
I have loved music for most of my life, growing up in the 60's my Mother used to have radio Caroline on most of the day, listening to music everyday was just part of my upbringing, by the time I was in my teenage years I was interested in electronics and still a big fan of music. It was the 70's and had a friend who's older brother ran a mobile disco, well I was bitten by the bug and wanted to become a DJ so with my growing interest in electronics I built my first disco deck in 1974, and so my road to becoming a DJ had started, and this passion remained for around 40 years. In 2010 I went on a training course for radio presenting on 7 Waves Community Radio and the rest is history, I went on to present on community and commercial FM stations, I am part owner of New Brighton Radio where I can still be heard broadcasting to this day.
I started in show business at the age of 13 singing in various local bands, began songwriting in the 70's and recorded several albums. I got into radio 12 years ago and have presented shows for various stations. Now at 73, I'm the grandfather of New Brighton Radio and Co-Owner, hoping to continue for many years to come.
Hello, I'm Mike. With more than 30 years experience in entertainment I am certainly no stranger to a microphone, with a portfolio as an accomplished DJ and Radio Station Manager (spearheading a failing hospital radio station to multiple gold awards), I have hosted everything from Quiz nights to Weddings before dipping my toes into broadcasting in the 90's, working in Hospital, Community, Commercial & Network Radio before joining the BBC in 2015. I currently look after the technical side of NBR, keeping our great station on the air.
I started Dj'ing in pubs & clubs after I left school but always wanted to get into radio and thanks to our good friend Ian, I finally got my big break two and a half years ago and not looked back since, it seems like I’ve been doing it all my life.
Hello all, I hope as you read this I find you well. Do you know I've been involved in radio so long that some people think I went to school with Marconi, not quite, but I have been around radio stations for quite a few years, Commercial, Community and starting off aged 16 on hospital radio travelling in by horse & cart. So here I am, On New Brighton Radio enjoying helping you to start your Saturday with a load of great oldies (and a few newies), and presenting a wide range of features between 7 and 10 assisted and sometimes hindered by my studio manager Percy when he's let out from the nbr rest home up on the hill. We have a look at the morning papers, beatles at breakfast, music on this day, rock n' roll classic, our romantic interlude “Wayne's Weepie” and a chance for you all to show off your music knowledge with bits and pieces around 8.15. So if you can, give the show a listen and get your Saturday and Weekend started!
My name is Tommy Noon, I present the Right Track show on Monday evenings 7 til 10pm. I've been Broadcasting for over 35 years alongside my NHS Intensive care duties at Whiston Hospital. Radio is my passion, especially Community Radio where we get the freedom to express our music tastes and reach out to listeners with the same music interest.
The RIGHT TRACK on NBR is a northern soul and Motown and indeed Soul across the board show, All requests welcome and guaranteed to be played. I have three competitions one per hour which is very popular.
I'm James Mc, I currently host the Tuesday Jukebox every week between 4 and 6. It is a show all about the listeners and the songs they request. We have some great segments every week with some exciting ones coming up in the near future. I have loved music for as long as I can remember and have been a Dj and compere for near 20 years, from hosting shows at big venues to djing at pubs and parties. I love music and have a very varied taste in music however, if pushed to pick my favourites they would be The Beatles and The Killers. I couldn't be happier having a show here at New Brighton Radio, a local station with the listeners at its core.
'Hi, I'm Nathan Gould and I have presented the Remembering The 80's show on Saturdays on NBR since February 2020. I have also presented similar 80's shows and other shows, such as 'Drivetime' on other community stations since starting in radio in 2010. I like a wide range of music, such as pop, rock, indie and reggae, and also like films, TV and sport. I hope you enjoy my show here on NBR!
Hi, I'm Roland (aka The Dutchman) and present every Wednesday night from 7-9pm The Dutchman Rock Review, exclusive for New Brighton Radio. Not unfamiliar with rock music (playing guitar in 2 rock bands: Retrospect and Perch), I present every Wednesday a mix of classic rock and rock from new upcoming bands, my definition of rock is a wide stretch. My show, dubbed by listeners as the best and most interactive rock show in the UK, contains fixed contributions from Craig MacDonald (Craig’s Quarter) & Iain Dunton (Born to Rock). Every week there’s attention to a specific band in the Spotlight item, either sent in by a listener or selected by myself. Requests are always welcome & emails, texts and chats are read live on air.
I have always had a love with underground dance music. From a young age loving the early 90's rave scene. I got my 1st pair of decks when I was 14 years old, and I haven't looked back since. Now I have a new adventure with the underground music show, where I like to promote up and coming DJ's and artists. I am also starting my own record label, Future Noise Records. We have been playing them on the show for the last year. We've had up and coming DJ's and established DJ's on the show such as Dowdzwell, Jay Wilde, Kill the Smoke and Noize Disorder plus many more. We are always looking for up and coming talent from the North West area because this is what my show is about.
Howdy Y'all, I'm Mandy. I currently present the Something Country Show on Saturday's on NBR. I was late to the party in radio world making my debut in 2015 but I had a very good teacher. I went on to win 2 Gold HBA awards for hosting the 'Ladies at Lunch' show and the following year for my fundraising efforts winning 'Fundraiser of the Year'. I'm a busy girlie, currently broadcasting on four stations. I love what I do and I love the interaction with the lovely listeners.
