Brown said: “I’m thoroughly enjoying serving the people of Carvendale and the surrounding areas.”

He has been able to meet a few celebrities, including singer Joan Armatrading when she performed at the Harrogate Theatre.

Brown explained it normally takes him about two hours to organise and arrange the show that contains all the traffic and travel news, sport news, entertainment news, local features and local guests.

In terms of the music that is played, Brown said: “At community radio stations people have more say over the songs they play, compared to commercial radio.”

He also explained then when trying to get someone really famous he will get in touch with them though their agent, or Twitter.

As well as the breakfast show, he also presents the sport show, which is every weekend and he has also done outside broadcasting and a Motown programme.
