Chris Ashbey

I started with Radio Wey in April 2019 after 18 years service as a Scout leader, and to be honest I don't miss soggy wet and muddy camp sites! I've lived in Staines and Ashford all my life and music has always been a big part of it. I learnt to play the bass guitar at school and have also picked up other instruments like keyboards and drums. I think the DJ fascination started when I was about 19 and I started collecting 12" singles, mostly House music, and then got myself a pair of turntables and a mixer. At the time I was in a band with 2 friends and we managed to record and produce 2 albums in his amateur studio. I started my training at Radio Wey with Matt Richings soon after joining and became a regular co-presenter on Tuesday nights Request Stop. I've also been part of the Hospital Open day last year and the Walton Festival of Light events last year. During my training I was lucky enough to cover some other shows and I got my final big break on New Years Day when I covered Brunch Time Breakfast. Now I am presenting my own request show on a Wednesday night for the Maternity ward and am looking forward to other Radio Wey events too!
