Neil joined in July 1979 and was trained by the then programme controller, Steve Lord.

Now chairman, Steve presented Neil with his certificate from the Hospital Broadcasting Association.

"I had the pleasure of shadowing Neil during his first show. It was on Sunday afternoon just before a committee meeting and everyone came in to the studio to have a listen. No pressure then!" - Steve Lord

Thankfully, the experience didn't seem to put Neil off.

He has held several roles on the committee himself over the years.

Neil is now the voice of the station and is affectionately known as Mr Bo Jingles!
