Alan Johnson

My radio career began in the late 90s when I ran a number of trial stations in my then home town around the same time Phoenix was doing similar things in Brentwood and Billericay.

I joined Phoenix in May 2010 and presented Feelgood Saturday for seven years, also supporting the running of the station for a time as a director.

Since stepping aside from regular presenting I've been covering presenters and broadcasting one-off specials, including a show based on my fascination with music samples - I'm a big dance music fan.
