As It Was

John McDonald

Hi I’m John.

I have reached that point in my life where I am labelled as being in my mid-30s. I am a massive geek and get great satisfaction out of watching Thunderbirds and Knight Rider amongst many other geeky things. Somehow I managed to get married to a girl called Claire and we have 3 amazing kids together. Ellie, Violet and Joseph.

I have been a huge fan of radio for many years and have worked for various different radio stations around south Yorkshire. There is something extremely special about pressing play and knowing that someone somewhere will be pleased with what has come on.

I am a huge football fan, a huge fan of cars both modern and classic (or just anything with wheels to be honest with you) along with being a big fan of music which is something that helps when you are on the radio! I can play the violin (not very well), the guitar (not very well) and the drums (not very well) and I often get told off by my wife for drumming on the table with my fingers too much.

Anyway enough about me, how about you?
