Bill Jagger


Hi I'm Bill

I have been interested in radio all my life, especially the pirate stations in the sixties. I have been a presenter on another local station for around eight years now and am very proud to be part of East Point Radio.


Lily Tarbox


I was born in the North East of England but spent my teenage and early adult life in North London. 

My teenage years were spent listening to Radio London, Radio Caroline and Radio Luxembourg. 

I have always loved radio and if I had to make a choice, I could do without the TV but not Radio which is why, now retired, I am thrilled to be invited to help with this new Community Radio project.


Jane Martin


I was born in Guildford in Surrey and lived most of my life in and around that area until moving to Lowestoft in 2009. Although I have absolutely no radio experience, I have always secretly wanted to give it a go and am proud to be a part of East Point Radio.

My passions are creative writing, reading, films and theatre, especially musicals. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share my love of show tunes with you every four weeks (Monday Musicals 5pm-7pm).

If that isn't exciting enough,  Rebeccah Giltrow and I get to talk about books, films, plays and local writers in our fortnightly show, The Wordy Birds (Mondays 5pm-7pm)


Brian Smith


I'm a retired IT consultant who enjoys life to the full.  My main interests are music (of many kinds), classic cars, photography, travel, eating and drinking.  Above all, I love my family and have three beautiful young granddaughters.

I've loved radio since 'Listen With Mother' and 'Housewives' Choice' on the BBC Light Programme, through the '60s and '70s pirate era and the onset of local and community radio.  I have worked on hospital stations in Essex and Hertfordshire and currently broadcast on community stations in Norfolk and Suffolk.


Martin Z


I've loved radio since I had my first little transistor radio when I was a young child. I grew up in the 70's, and in my teens I began listening to speech-based radio as well as music-based shows.

From 2009 I did some presenting on Blyth Valley Community Radio, and I look forward to continuing with that, from my home studio here in Southwold, Suffolk, on East Point Radio.

I enjoy classic rock/pop, motown/disco, Americana, and some country music, Celtic folk, and more. I began collecting classical cds when I was 30, and I presented a few classical music programmes on BVCR.

I'm interested in news and current affairs, and I like the American FM radio model of about 15 minutes of continuous music, followed by some talk.

Dennis Read


Hi, I’m Dennis,

I was born & bred in Bungay and have been living in this area for over 30 years.

I’m soooo looking forward to starting my show and bringing you the best sounds from the 60’s, 70’s and a few of the 50’s every Thursday evening from 7pm - 9pm.

Before retiring in 2013 I worked at Blundeston Prison for over 11 years, during which time I created and ran a TV station called Chanel 7 for almost 6 years, therefore music played a big part on the station for me.

I have a huge interest in aviation where I was a Private Pilot for many years but it was taken from me due to health problems - I realised my dream of a 50 minutes flight in a Spitfire from Duxford in 2017. Besides now starting my radio show I also volunteer at the Warren School Lowestoft as well as volunteering as a Dementia Befriender at James Paget Hospital.

Oh, yes, I have three scatty cats who know how to control me.


Sylvia Jagger


Hi I'm Sylvia

A retired Primary School Teacher from Essex. I enjoy chatting to people as everyone has a story to tell, or an organisation to promote. I love listening  to stories written by local authors and also stories for children. With good music from the fifties and also light classical join me for Sylvie's Selection Box.


Suzanne Murray


Hi, I am Suzanne. 

Having lived in Southwold in my twenties, I have now returned to the area after almost 40 years spent running a business and raising a family in Kent.

Although I have had no previous radio experience, I am eager to learn; I love (almost) all genres of music, and rarely stop talking, so I hope this will be an advantage!"


Tony Tibbenham

 

Grey haired sailor by day. Rock DJ by night.  I get paid to do computer stuff, write thrillers for fun and occasionally get cajoled into doing something theatrical. 

 

A classic rock show inspired by listening to my sisters heavy rock collection through the bedroom wall 'a few' decades ago. Some classics, some lesser known tracks and maybe some local rock talent too.

 

My only rule: "If I like it, I play it."


Mark Lindsey


Hi I`m Mark

I am a semi-retired Broadcast Electronics Engineer, who is very enthusiastic about Radio - originally my interest was ignited back in the sixties with the Offshore Radio era with Radios Caroline, London etc.

I have been actively involved since 1993 in all aspects of Radio in Nottinghamshire with Hospital, Community, and commercial stations, plus establishing Broadcast Radio stations within a number of Colleges in Nottingham and the surrounding areas, and being involved with the delivery of Radio Training Courses.

I originate from East Anglia (Ipswich) and really appreciate the opportunity to Broadcast on East Point.

Stephen Whittock


I was born just outside Croydon, South London.  Apart from a few years sojourn in Greece, I lived in and around that area until 9 years ago when I moved to Greater Manchester at the foot of the Pennines.

As a kid, with a small battery driven reel to reel machine I would put together, “radio” shows for fun nearly always the content was film and then later, when discovered theatre based.  I guess it was a natural progression as my father was a musician, having trained at, The Royal Military School of Music, Kneller Hall.  My mother was a dancer. I was doomed.  From a very tender age music of all genres filled the house and at 3 I learned to operate my grandparents wonderful old radiogram.

Since first getting the stage bug, I have been involved with theatre first on stage but now directing and choreographing.  My many passions apart from obviously musicals and the theatre in general, include films, reading and now listening as thanks to Jane Martin, I have discovered the delights of audio books.  Cooking and recently a resurgence of swimming.  A strong wanderlust has always been apparent too but the itchy feet get really uncomfortable these days.

This is my first foray into proper radio and having loved the couple of times I stood in for Jane Martin, on her Monday Musicals show, I was delighted when she asked me to take it on permanently. 

I hope you enjoy the show as much as I have putting it together.


Terry Tarbox


Hi, I’m Terry

I am really looking forward to presenting on East Point Radio. I write children’s stories and rhyme books and will be reading these on the new station. I will also be playing my favourite music. I have been working on another local radio station for about three years. This is an exciting project and I hope the local population will give it plenty of support.

Sue Winner


Hi all

I’m originally from North London, a mum to four children and wife, oh and I have 6 gorgeous grandchildren too.

I love most genre’s of music from the forties to recent and have nice memories of music being played around our home when I was younger.

This radio station has some wonderful people working on it and it’s been great doing my Sue’s Selection on a Friday afternoon, so grab a cuppa and tune in at 2pm for my hour of music.


Rebeccah Giltrow


I'm Lowestoft born and bred, and have lived in the area my whole life (apart from four years in Colchester while at university). I'm a part time writer and a part time library lady. I'm pretty much always reading books, and if I'm not reading them, I'm writing them!  I also enjoy watching films (mainly horror), going to the theatre, baking (and eating the cakes I make), and walking with my dog, Lily, along the beach.

This is my first venture into the world of radio, and I'm very pleased to be working alongside Jane Martin, presenting our fortnightly show The Wordy Birds, on East Point Radio to share our passion for books, music, film, theatre, and everything in between!  Please ‘like’ us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/The2WordyBirds and let us know what you think of our show.

Alan Perry


I am the Team Vicar for the Sole Bay Team of Churches and have lived in Reydon since October 2016. 

I live with my wife Sue and our Golden Retriever puppy, Soleby.

I have particular responsibility for St Margaret, Reydon, St Peter & St Paul, Wangford and St Lawrence, South Cove.

I am passionate about music from a whole range of different genres.  I especially enjoy Church Music, Jazz, Classical, Modern, and Film Music.

I hope this shows you that my tastes are difficult to pin down.

Since I did my first radio broadcast during the Summer of 2017, at Southwold Boating Lake I have become hooked and am really looking forward to a regular show.


Dawn Cooper


Hello - I’m Dawn,

I’m delighted to be presenting a show on East Point Radio. I love listening to jazz, and I enjoy exploring different types of jazz and discovering artists and songs new to me.  So.... Jazz in the Afternoon will be a mix of music - including trad jazz, jazz standards, bebop, bossa and swing. I hope you like the show.

Adam Gammage


Born in London, Bred in Suffolk,  I am an Actor, Radio Presenter And Voice Actor that loves all things film related.

I am a very bubbly personality who is fairly new to the Radio Presenting game, but my knowledge and passion will ensure a well prepared and presented show.

Rob Polland


Hi I’m Rob Polland

My love and passion radio started way back in 1962 when as a small boy for Christmas I was giving the smallest transistor radio you ever saw.

What‘s the first thing I did went to bed at 8 as usual and got my tranny out and one little earpiece out “no stereo then “and tuned in to radio Luxembourg under the covers and a presenter by the name of a presenter called Barry Aldiss some of you of a certain age will remember him, and so the fuse was lit my love for radio had begun.

Music has been and still is a huge part of my life so radio and music together it was inevitable I would get involved.

I started out in hospital radio many moons ago and have moved to different stations over the years and eventually to internet radio which I believe is the future of many things including radio.

Like many presenters I believe in radio how it used to be and if I can be tiny fraction as good as my hero Sir Terry Wogan I’ ll be happy man mind you in saying that give me another couple of years I might be nearly good at it.
