Patrick Sherring

As a child I listened to the pirate radio ships, particularly Radio London on 266. I loved the romance of the DJs playing the latest music for the listeners to hear.

After most of the pirate stations closed in August 1967 I used to listen to Fabulous 208 Radio Luxembourg, the continuing Radio Caroline, Radio North Sea International and Radio 1. I particularly enjoyed listening to radio in the evening and at night.

One of my favourite shows was Late Night Extra in the early days of Radio 1. All kinds of guests would just turn up and be part of the show. As a listener radio should feel like a friend is talking directly to you.

I dreamed of being on the radio for many years. In 1988 I began on Hospital Radio with Radio Enfield in north London. I had my own request show and used to commentate from Spurs and Enfield F.C. home games. I was also part of the Radio Enfield Roadshow team, taking part in many outside broadcasts.

Now I am delighted to be on Phoenix FM, where I have had a Friday show for ten years. In June 2021 I moved to the Friday afternoon One 2 Three slot. On the show there is a mixture of musical genres. Often there are guests giving lengthy interviews on a wide range of topics including faith and social action. There are also some live music performances. This little boy's dream has come true!
