Dan Coats

Dan Coats

Dan Coats has aspirations to be the next "Whispering" Bob Harris - and with his dulcet tones and love of country music he might just be on to something.

The student grew up taking in whatever his parents were listening to - which fortunately meant a lot of 60s, 70s and 80s pop-rock which he also still loves.

He's keen to one day visit Graceland, Nashville, sail on down the Mississippi to New Orleans and then head west for the lonestar state of Texas.

"Listeners to my shows can expect to hear the likes of Johnny Cash and Shania Twain cropping up alongside Bryan Adams and Roxy Music."

With the radio always on at home, Dan joined Radio Clatterbridge to gain some insight into how a radio station works.

As a big football fan, Dan also produces our Saturday Sequence sports show although he does have a good excuse for the occasional week when he can't make it in.

"I'm a life-long Manchester City fan, not a recent glory hunter, and I go to as many home games as I can."

Dan was once on the audio production team for One Night In Instanbul, a play all about Liverpool winning the Champions League back in 2005.

He told us the producer had requested that every single team member be a reds supporter.

"I don't know how I ended up there, but I kept pretty quiet once I found that out. In any case, this was back when we City fans really didn't have an awful lot to shout about!"
