Tim's Career

• When did you start your first significant job/career?

Before I got into radio, I did several jobs, like a caravan washer, working in an American-themed restaurant, a record shop and a pizza delivery boy… For an hour!

• When did you start your first radio job, what was it?

My first 'real' radio job was at the tender age of 16 at a small community station, where I was also the boss and breakfast presenter.

• What do you think is the key to your success?

I like to think it’s my friendly approach and 'natural' way to talk to listeners. Plus, my enthusiasm and love for radio.

•  What do you love about radio?

What isn’t there to love? It’s such a fun job and if you can connect to someone via the radio, it makes it all worthwhile.

About You and Your Hobbies

• What are your passions/hobbies outside of work?

I'm a keen amateur magician, so anything relating to that I love learning; I’m also into hypnosis. I enjoy going to the cinema to see the latest blockbusters.

•  Any quirky/interesting habits or facts about you?

I'm a qualified Hypnotherapist – so if you need to stop smoking or are scared of spiders, etc I can help!

• Favourite TV show(s)

I love Family Guy, Lost, Simpsons… Most comedy shows

• Favourite meal

A good Italian goes down well – although, being a Brummie, I do like the odd curry – not too hot though.

• Favourite film (s)

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (the original), Ocean’s 11

• Favourite thing to do when on holiday

I’m a big one for exploring, rather than just sitting by the pool all day – I find that a waste.

• Favourite place to go on holiday

Big fan of the US, but I went to Canada recently and fell in love with it.

• What are you like in the morning?

Annoyingly happy (apparently)

• How does your best friend describe you?

Always smiley, happy and always thinking of others.

• What would the title of your biography be called?

"Son of a Lich"
