Brentwood, 8.47am: 19°C, broken clouds

Graham Stannard

I've worked in radio off and on since 1993, from the early days of Restricted Service Licence broadcasts in Southend with Searock and Supanova, through Southend Hospital Radio to Phoenix FM which I joined in January 2010.

My show Musical Meanderings covers a broad range of music such as metal, acoustic and electronic. The show particularly showcases unsigned bands, both locally and internationally, and features interviews and live music in the studio, out on location or via Skype.

I also present the Mental Health Matters podcast on the station. Interviewing local and international practitioners, using and researching various techniques to help people with a variety of mental health conditions, and also looking into some broader issues which may be behind the increase in mental health problems.
