                                                    Hi I am Jim Stevens

                                                    In the seventies, I


                                                    broadcasting on a

                                                    hospital radio

                                                    station in Surrey

                                                    and one of my

                                                    shows won the

                                                    NAHBO national

                                                    competition for

                                                    best hospital radio programme along ith my co-presenter Steve Jarrett. Among the judges were DJ & TV presenter Noel Edmonds and newsreader Richard Baker. I also started recording interviews with many celebrities, including DJ Johnnie Walker and comedy legends Morecambe & Wise. One of my favourite memories of hospital radio was presenting a live 'Juke Box Jury' in front of an audience with a celebrity panel including singers Helen Shapiro and Rob Davis of the band Mud. 

I now really enjoy presenting my weekly Happy Hour show on various British and international FM & internet radio services. They are all a very friendly bunch and they’ve got talent oozing out of their studios!


Hi I’m Hollyj. I worked as a Housing Officer for the Local Authority for 24 years.


Upon retirement, I found myself at a loss of how to fill my days and it was a family friend, Steven King, who runs his own Radio Station Krystal Radio. who persuaded me to join the ranks of his Radio Presenters.


I must confess, I didn’t see myself as a Radio Presenter, but I loved the 60’s music and that’s how I got started as a Radio Presenter all those years ago.


I play the 50’s, 60’s 70’s on THE SATURDAY JUKEBOX 3-5pm


11:00am Sundays it’s THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE with songs chosen by the Listeners.  Love From Hollyj


Ari here. Bringing you the best rock and metal for krystal radio every Friday night for the Rock Hour!

I have been a rocker since my early teens, played in several thrash metal bands with friends and now giving my try on doing a radio show. I have not been in radio for as long as most here but my 8 years doing rock shows online and FM have been the most enjoyable years.

Hi Danny here I have been in radio over 40 years working at a variety of radio stations

and brings a great show of 60s and 70s to krystal radio.

I have worked in the radio sector in both Commercial and Community radio.  Over the last few years I have been involved in the administration side of the business.  Dealing with license bids as well as funding bids, also giving advice to others who are working in the same area.


I joined the CMA as a Director to help develop ideas within the Community radio sector.

So join me Danny Lawrence every Wednesday at 6PM with a great collection of 60s and 70s here Krystal Radio

Hi, I’m Jacqui and have only been in radio a very short time compared to others that I work alongside. On retiring early from working in finance I set about volunteering for a local hospital radio as a request collector, as I enjoy talking to people and felt this was my forte. However after the first week when I collected far too many requests by getting involved in chatting to the patients and staff for a long period of time, which was classed as going AWOL from the station. I returned to the studio with three pages of requests for a one hour show. Oh dear, far too many, with these having to be spread over several programmes..

On the whole I loved the volunteering, in my second week I was asked my genre of music, which was 60s – mad about the 60s – and asked if I would sit in and present the 60’s show as the guy was on holiday, not to worry about the controls someone would control the desk for me, all I had to do was chat, that was no problem for me.

I went home in deep thought, then came up with the idea of telling the 1963 Profumo Scandal through the said word and music – feeling I didn’t do too badly I was surprised to be asked to come back the following week and present another 60s programme, after which, I was asked if I could present the show permanently as the guy had left the station. My very own show in a matter of three weeks, I had never been elevated to a more superior position so quickly in all my life.

I have now been volunteering seventeen years with Basildon Hospital Radio with fifteen as Chairman. I have been around a bit broadcasting a chat show with Gateway Community Radio Station, managing to chat to some very interesting people in the process. In addition I now work an hour a week with Krystal Radio talking about articles in the newspapers and playing music, sometimes with guests, and sometimes talking to myself, I’m quite good at that!!!!!!

I hope you enjoy the programme and keep listening and supporting my programme.
