About Shep

I was born in Manchester, but I have always had a passion for The Fylde coast.

My love for radio started at a very early age when according to my mum I used to carry a transistor radio in my pram from being 2 years old,.

I used to sing 3 degrees when will I see you again to the lady who worked in the local Co-op when I used to go shopping with my mum as a little Ian..

I began working in commercial radio after leaving school in 1989. I presented regular programmes for the in-store radio network Radio Top Shop which was the learning ground for many of today's major figures still broadcasting within the commercial radio industry today. I have worked for many stations over the last 20 years, but it has always been a dream to work for Radio Wave as this station has always been so unique. I adore the music of the 1980's, and you can find me on air weekdays 2-7pm & Saturday 6am-10am.
