New presenter helping listeners to be the best version of themselves

Paul Golder writes for the Brentwood Gazette

We’re always looking for new presenters on Phoenix FM who understand community radio and the help that it can bring to people, and we’ve found a perfect new candidate in James Roast.

James is a clinical psychotherapist who has worked in emotional and mental health for over a decade.

His new show, The Happiness Algorithm, aims to give listeners the tools to be the best version of themselves.

James said, “I’ve provided expertise on various TV and radio programmes and my show discusses opportunities to make an ongoing mental health show where conversations can be had, removing any fear or stigma and normalising what we all go through. It would also give people a voice and hope.

“Mental Health doesn’t have to be isolating nor challenging. Too many people are suffering, let’s get talking.”

The show takes place on Wednesdays from 1pm to 3pm and has already featured two guests in its first two weeks – lifestyle nutrionist and performance coach Ryan Holder and Psychology blogger Dennis Relojo-Howell.

It’s also podcasted and you can hear the interviews again on www.phoenixfm.com.

We’ve got some therapy of a different kind on Sundays from 2pm while Vicki Michelle is off in pantoland. Daren Mootoo, co-presenter of our popular 98 Not Out cricket show, is stepping in for the next six weeks to present two hours of old-school reggae classics on his Reggae Revival show. If you miss it, it’s podcasted too – you can find details of all our shows on our website.
