Gareth Williams

I was born in 70s Brentwood and inherited my love of music from my parents. Over 500 gigs, 14 Glastonburys, and countless music purchases later, the passion remains.

I became involved with promoting live music, and also briefly running a small label, WET Records with 2 friends many moons ago, and it was an interview with Phoenix about the label that piqued my interest.

I joined the team as the Sunday Morning Breakfast Show presenter in January 2017, where you can hear 3 hours of just about anything good from 7am every week.

You can also find me presenting Indie Schmindie, 2 hours of Indie, Alternative & Rock from the 80s, 90s & 00s, and all of my previous shows can be found here.
