Gareth Williams

I was born in 70s Brentwood and inherited my love of music from my parents. Over 500 gigs, 13 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.

An interview with Phoenix about the label piqued my interest and 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.
