   LISTEN LIVE!

Presenters

Here are just some of the faces that make Hull’s 107FM what it is …

HELEN BEET

Helen presents the Afternoon Recharge and the Saturday Thing. She began presenting for Trafford General Hospital’s Radio Wishing Well in the early 90’s and after a gap of ‘a few years’, decided to see if she could still talk nonsense to the general public again.

She accomplished this by joining Hull’s 107FM in November 2021.

 

 

PETE MILLS

We best say nice things about this guy.
He’s the gaffer! (Well one of them)

Pete is the one responsible for having this mad idea to create this radio station in the first place way back in 2013. Official press releases state that:
“There is no truth in the rumour he set up the station so he could play more U2 on the radio. Absolutely none whatsoever.”
(So we’re told.)

The award winning former Viking FM & KCFM radio presenter brings his irreverent take on the world that only an ‘ull bloke could have.

Pete is the host of The Other Side of the 80s, Straight Outta 107FM and is the lead commentator of North Ferriby Live coverage.

WOLFY O’HARE

Wolfy came to the station through our one of our training programmes. 

He is well known on the local cultural scene as a musician, a people’s poet, a player of really odd instruments and has taken on the role of our Hull Truck correspondent.

Wolfy had never presented on radio before until he came to us. He has a wonderful way with words and a most magnificent beard.

 

JON GIBBINS

Alright he’s not originally from Hull, but we won’t hold that against him. Essex-born computer geek Jon studied at university here back in the early 2000s and has made Hull his home ever since, so he’s practically ‘ull if you ignore his flamboyant accent.

Jon has been involved with a few sporting and media projects in Hull and was the architect behind Hull’s first online Rugby channel HullFC.TV back in the early 2000s. He’s been on and off the wireless around different parts of the country since 1997 and is a fan of all areas of music. When the planets align he can be heard on 107FM playing anything from Disco to Drum’n’Bass, although his adoration of the 1980s does creep out more regularly than not.

DAVE NIGHTINGALE

Nighty is our Adopted Hullensian.

Hailing from Sheffield, Dave has been with the station since day one, has presented right across the schedule, produced rugby and football coverage and is currently the host of 107FM‘s Saturday Breakfast and The Sunday Club.

Dave also is found regularly with Millsy commentating on North Ferriby games.

 

DAVID BURNS

Broadcasting legend David Burns has a new radio home here at 107FM. The multi-award winning broadcaster and all round good guy can be found in his Eclectic Circus Monday’s at 8pm, playing and saying what the heck he likes! He’s live and unleashed on 107FM.

Burnsy is also on air weekly with Burnsy’s To Do List, a cultural events guide with guests and the finest music picks.

 

JANINE GOSLING

Janine has been with us since July 2021. She has covered a number of shows but you can usually find her on the Freshly Squeezed Breakfast.

As well as being an astute business woman, mum and radio presenter, she is also a trained dancer specialising in Ballet Commercial and Musical Theatre and has been in many productions since the year dot.

 

 

GEOFF BIELBY

Geoff has been with us for a number of years and brings his experience and knowledge to Liveline, where the show is focused on mind health matters.
Away from radio after a 6 year sabbatical he has recently got himself season membership for Hull City to escape working in a chip shop and is forging a career for himself as a stand up comedian.

Geoff’s musical tastes are wide and varied but stem from the late 70’s/early 80’s post-punk explosion. 

 

JAKE CONLON

Another product of our very successful training scheme, Jake is one to watch in the future.

Currently doing a cracking job of presenting
The Jam four times a week and the
Freshly Squeezed Breakfast on a Friday. 

 

 

 

LETON aka THE LAYMAN

This is 107FM’s Dance music guru. His weekly show The Essential Mix is an absolute must for fans of the Dance genres. A mix of classic and upfront dance music, whether it’s Rave, Trance, Techno, House or Hardcore … you name it, he plays it.

 

 

 

ASH ROBINSON

Ash has been with the station 3 years and can be normally heard on a weekend presenting The 90’s You Forgot, taking a trip back to decades underappreciated and finding underplayed tracks. You can also find him on Sundays with They Played in Hull, all about the many bands and artists that have played in Hull over the years. 

IAN WATERSON

One of the station’s longest serving presenters. From as far back as 2015 he’s been the presenter of Reloaded: Indie Anthems. Ian has also commentated on both football and rugby for the station in his time, including that Hull City appearance at Wembley in 2015!

MATTHEW HAWKINGS

Matthew has been with 107FM for a few years now, first as part of the ground breaking We Are Autism show, now out on his own with the Random Number 1 show.

DEAN REYNOLDS

Dean is our nighthawk. His Midnight Alternative takes the listener on journey through electronic music and electronica form around the world.

THE CASUAL MENACE

Another presenter who has been with us pretty much from the start. This Mysterious DJ provides leftfield music mixes as host to The Casual Menace Mixtape Exchange. The Menace has an international reputation and following. Being originally from Hull he is a massive Hull City fan.

 

All in all, 107FM has over 50 volunteers who contribute to the station.
Past and present names include:

Dave Southway, James Ross, Andy Henley, Greavsie, Dave Mac, Steve Hart, Glyn Williams, Jack Wilfan, Kevin Precious, Nick Boldock of the Hull Music Archive, Joe Brown, Fiona Mills, Dan Morfitt, Ben Lister, Simon Bellerby, Connor Mills, Jed Salisbury …
… to name but a few!
