mike green

the boss
 

Hi, I'm Mike Green, owner, and also a Presenter at Skyline 102.5FM. Here are a few things that you don't really need to know about me: I've been a DJ since the mid 60's, it all started in 1964 when I first heard Radio Caroline and from then I knew, somehow, a DJ's life was for me.

I started the "Bootlace Disco" in 1966 and have been a DJ/Radio Presenter ever since. The 50's, 60's and 70's are my speciality years; my own favourites coming from the late 50's and early 60's. Danny and the Juniors "At the Hop" and Bobby Darin's "Dream Lover" are amongst my all-time favourites. Obviously "American Graffitti" is a favourite film but so is "Kelly's Heroes".

As well as collecting records I also have a passion for old Radio and TV programmes especially the memorable adverts and jingles. I like classic cars and motorcycles and by now you will have guessed that I still think in feet and inches! My dislikes are the Nanny State with its over the top PC telling us what we can't say, think or do. So that's me and thankyou for taking the time to read it. That's all Folks!

Oh, and if you would like to contact me please email mike.green@skylinegold.co.uk

 

Andi C

wednesday, sunday

It’s often said that we’re all in the gutter but a few people look at the stars.  If I can persuade you to do that, just sometimes, I’m a happy bunny, whether I’m on air under the nom-de-guerre of Andi C or writing for papers, mags and websites with the nom-de-plume of Andi Cortez.

Hereon Skyline Gold we have a cool bag of music, sure, but much more than a case of CDs or a cache of mp3 files.  I admire people who step outside their Anaglypta Villas and attempt something significant so I provide a platform of the people whenever I can on Skyline Gold.  After all, we are a community radio station.  Local guests and personalities are important to me and enjoyable hopefully for you, my listeners.  Not so much the latest celebrity clothes-horses, they have their publicity machines well-oiled and in constant motion already.  Come and discover with me some gemstones among life’s pebbles.

Currently I present two very different shows on Skyline Gold:

The Fret Connection (Wednesday 8 – 10pm) celebrates the art of guitar, the most popular instrument in the world.  I try to make such a diverse musical world more local to you on a different theme each week.  You’ll find I spotlight our local musicians who are looking to get noticed by something or someone significant, each with an interesting story to tell.  I often record local concerts and events so please get in touch if you play or promote locally.  Uniquely on the radio, I have technical features to help improve your guitar playing.  Classical, jazz, folk, bluegrass, acoustic, blues, metal and rock styles but not everything every week!  I have listeners in many countries including Canada, USA, France, Germany, Australia and some in Africa so you’ll discover new music you wouldn’t otherwise stumble on.

My Monday Afternoon Diversion (Mondays 2 – 5pm) attempts to pep up your Monday afternoon as you reflect or recover from the weekend.  Music from the 1940s till now, film reviews, books, and sporadic weird news.  Also, a whacky word of the week for you to try out in conversation and watch what happens.  My studio guests are diverse and will talk aardvarks to zygotes with a little prompting from you.

sunday 5pm

Listening to the radio became an early obsession for Margaret (Mags to friends). The days of going to see local outside broadcasts and the original roadshows of a well known BBC station are fondly remembered and probably to blame! Generally whatever Mags is doing, the radio is on, sometimes at the same time as the TV!

Mags started presenting for Winchester Hospital Radio in 1996, presenting programmes 'Artist of the Week' and 'Grin & Tonic' as well as request shows. Roles also included Ward Visiting Co-ordinator and Socials Organiser. She also r an a mobile disco from 2000 – 2007 called Starsoundz.

She has three different part time jobs - Front of House Assistant at Mayflower Theatre and at 02 Guildhall Southampton along with the Concorde Club.

Mags was born in Southampton during the 70's in August making her a Leo star sign, interests include music (of course!), radio, spiritualism, gym, circuits classes, zumba, reading, gardening, socialising and sightseeing.

Catch Mags every Sunday evening between 5pm - 8pm, playing music across the decades to the present day - guaranteed to get your feet tapping. Features on the programme include anagram, silly song, stupid question, silly sign, who am I, cheesy toon and a theme after 6.30pm.

If you would like to contact Mags email: margaret.head@skylinegold.co.uk

 

jez

saturday 10am

Jez spends a lot of his time out in the jungles of Africa but then swings by the Skyline Studios for a few months as a presenter before zooming off to another hot, usually uncomfortable place. Jez started his showbiz career a few years ago when at home in UK, producing and editing TV programmes and co-starring in the AND Magazine TV show aired locally. He's also done magazine photography for AND Magazine, GQ magazine and a couple of others.

Jez's lack of knowledge on sport is legendary (he once photographed the England football team manager and didn't have a clue who he was!) and Tony Pankhurst once likened watching Jez's show to watching a circus, so it's certainly fun. Thankfully, he loves all types of music so his show is bizarre to say the least, with anything from African jungle music to the Bonzo Dog Do-dah Band or Michael Buble. These are mixed up with quizzes, phone calls (usually from odd places) and some rather strange but usually entertaining guests, so you're in for a great time if you can catch him!!

gary jackson

monday, tuesday and friday

Gary started his DJ career back in the days when half a dozen singles from Saturday Night Fever were guaranteed to fill the dance floor. Hospital radio beckoned in the early 1990s and he now finds himself on an FM station, surprised that it's the English speaking population that listens, having always thought the most suitable audience would be those who hadn't a clue what he was on about. He fell in love with beat music in the 60s, and in 1997 he was approached by The Searchers to publish their official website which he does to this day.

Gary Jackson's shows are packed with special features - not for the audience's benefit, but because at his age just staying awake for two hours is tough enough, and every little helps! When he's not convincing famous presenters that their jobs are safe, Gary writes a monthly sixties music column for the Hampshire Chronicle newspaper.

Dark Side Of The Moon, Mondays from 8-10pm includes music from classic and progressive rock acts - previously hardly ever heard anywhere on radio yet they sold by the million - some of which can now interestingly be heard on other local stations! 

My Generation - the 60s show, Fridays 8-10pm is the sixties session which not only attracts local listeners but pulls them in from all over the world! Gary also has the unique feature called the Unofficial Skyline Sweep - guess how far in to the programme it all goes pear-shaped!

sunday breakfast, thursday 7pm

Andrews towers, the shed at the end of the garden during lockdown, and breakfast live from melbourne,;just a few of the places kev has broadcast from in recent times. 

Should he ever get the peace and quiet of a pacific island, coffee and soul music would be two main items he would need. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

our key commitments

 

The station will be music-led and feature music from a wide variety of genres. Live daytime programmes will typically comprise of 80% music and 20% speech. The speech element may include news, weather, traffic reports, community news, interesting stories, and other general information that may be of interest. Also comments and views via phone, text, letters or email from listeners on a variety of subject’s.

The programming should in the main appeal to, and suitable for, a family audience. Local and community news is an important element and may include coverage of small stories of significance to the community that may not receive coverage elsewhere, as well as other relevant issues such as local planning matters.

Daytime music will be mainly from the 50s/60s/70s/and 80s however music requests from other decades will be played, this will provide a variation of music to appeal to different age groups. Specialist music shows in the evenings may include rock and roll country, rock, jazz, big band, classical etc. The service will normally be live for at least eight hours per day, pre recordings and repeats of previously-broadcast programmes may be used at other times.

The aim is to provide an underserved community a service that will cover small but important local issues that are not covered on other broadcast media. With a local/community news service, information about local groups, and general awareness-raising of local issues. Local council and other relevant representatives are welcome to talk on local issues. The station will encourage views and comments, from listeners principally by phone, emails, letters etc. Community information sharing is encouraged. The operation of an “open door" policy will be applied to encourage the development of programme ideas from individual members of the community, or community groups

Local schools can produce appropriate material to be broadcast.

Everyone involved in broadcasting will undergo some training. Regular volunteers will be trained in the use of studio equipment. Interviewing techniques and news reading/collating if required. When trained they will in turn be encouraged to train other interested people.

Where possible we will have a presence at local events, supporting the on line and on air service we give to supporting community events. Local fund raising events will be promoted on air throughout the year to help raise the profile of the station and the charities in the local area.

The station will encourage partnerships with local charities to share resources towards mutual promotion and success.

The station will provide opportunities for members of the community to be involved within the operation, promotion and management of the service. Involvement to be encouraged through on-air promotions and the continued existence of the listening panel. Community feedback will be encouraged by on air announcements, the station website and forum. The output can be adapted in response to this feedback. The listening panel will allow representatives of the community to provide feedback on the station's performance. It may suggest improvements or changes in relation to station output and other station activities. The panel will consist of up to seven people preferably living within the station's licenced broadcast area. These may include representatives from volunteers, local businesses and youth work etc.
