Jon Kirby shows
My first taste of radio presenting came way back in 2013 when a good friend of mine asked me to fill in for his co-host who was otherwise engaged that evening – the show called “The Plymouth Punchline” was an off-the-cuff, completely unscripted and very politically incorrect take on local news and events around Plymouth and the surrounding areas. There was no filter. Nothing was off limits.
I had found my calling in life.
So much so that I invited a certain Mr. Pinhey from our very own Ocean City Rock Block to join me. The rest, they say, is history.
Fast forward a few years and I find myself back where I feel most comfortable – talking rubbish and playing great music for the local community of Plymouth.
The show I’m most well-known for is “The Hangover” which I co-host with fellow OCR presenter and long-time friend of mine, Sophie Gibson. This show needs no introduction – we have been working together on it for well over 2 years now, it gets better every time, and I wouldn’t be able to do it without her (don’t tell her that though, I’ll never hear the end of it)!
I have also been known, from time to time, to make the odd cameo appearance on the Rock Block with Darren – he doesn’t let me come on very often because I like perm rock, much to his disgust (though deep down I know he loves a good power ballad, bit of Poison, Whitesnake, and ESPECIALLY Guns N’ Roses).
