Here's a bit more about our 2 early risers...
Brought up on a diet of Wham Bars, Caramacs, and Why Don’t You, Paul realised at an early age you can actually get paid for playing other people’s records. After talking really nicely to his parents they bought him some mobile disco gear and so it began - doing dodgy pubs, birthdays and wedding receptions lugging rope lights and turn tables all over Huddersfield & beyond. He soon moved onto work in some of the country’s finest nightclubs, and some of the not so fine ones too if truth be told…But he always fancied having a go on the wireless.
10 years ago Paul was coaxed from clubland with a promise of free cups of tea and biscuits by a station in Leeds, which soon led to him being kidnapped by a station over in Hull. The bosses realised he was cheap and stuck him all over the schedule from evenings to breakfast and everywhere in between. Now, after a stint in Manchester Paul has finally been brought back home to West Yorkshire. The opportunity for The Pulse Breakfast Show arrived and following various threats he finally agreed to do it...the theory still remains that playing records and talking in-between them isn’t a bad way to make a living!
