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!
