Stuart is married with a grown-up son and daughter; he lives in East Sussex just outside of Hastings. His radio career began in 1976 in hospital radio for the Woolwich Hospitals Broadcasting Service. In the same year he went to work, as a studio assistant, for BBC Medway, now called BBC Kent. In 1979 he joined P&O Cruises as an Entertainment Officer/Disc Jockey, on board SS Oriana and SS Canberra. Whilst overseas, he was offered freelance work in Gibraltar for the British Forces Broadcasting Service. He took up their offer and made regular visits to cover for holidays on the late show. In 1983 he took up the full-time post of Breakfast Show Presenter with the Commercial Radio Station for Ipswich, called Radio Orwell, now called Heart. At the end of his contract with Orwell, he was offered a full- time freelance position with Radio Wyvern and Radio Tees. BFBS also offered him the role of Presenter/Producer, which would be a staff post, so in 1985 he joined their biggest radio station BFBS Germany, first in the regional studios of Berlin, then in Cologne, as the Network Breakfast Show Presenter with a daily audience of 10 million listeners. After leaving Germany Stuart travelled with BFBS to Gibraltar, Belize, Hong Kong, Paderborn Germany, Brunei, London, Bosnia and Catterick. During his twelve years with BFBS Stuart held many positions, such as, Presenter, Senior Producer, Music Director, Station Manager, Head of Presentation and Deputy Controller Worldwide Programming BFBS London. Stuart left BFBS in 1997 as he was very unhappy with the way radio had changed to a computerised music scheduling format with no opportunity to have any musical input in to his show. Stuart went on to work for KFM Tonbridge, European Klassic Rock via Satellite, Sovereign Radio Eastbourne and BBC World Service in Network Operations. Stuart has also been seen on many tv programmes and films over the years as a walk on. he has appeared in The Bill, EastEnders, Holby, Star Wars, Jack & the Beanstalk and many others. Over the last few years Stuart has again been involved in radio, more behind the scenes with various internet radio companies. But now he is really looking forward to getting back to his first love, presenting. Stuart said “I can’t wait to start broadcasting, picking my own music again and formatting the show, just like radio used to be. It’s going to be great” You can find out how ‘The Golden Jukebox’ project came to be by visiting his website www.thegoldenjukebox.com
