Brentwood, 11.22am: 15°C, clear sky

Scott Ross

A lifelong passion for radio, love of music and a belief in the importance of real local radio! These are the reasons why I joined Phoenix FM, where I've been presenting a regular show since August 2010.

My regular weekday midday shows are shared with other presenters and include funny stories and a wide variety of guests.

When I'm not on Phoenix FM you can catch me on other radio bands as I am also a licenced radio amateur - 2E0ESX.

Radio is supposed to be a "fun" industry so it's really great to be part of a real local station offering the freedom to be ourselves and have fun on air.
