Jonathan first came across hospital radio after a long stay in hospital at the age of only 9. Wharfedale Hospital Radio in Otley, west Yorkshire, provided endless hours of entertainment and requests to keep his spirits up and he knew that, when he got older, he wanted to give something back and be part of this special service for patients. Jonathan first joined Radio Wey in 1980, after stints on Radio 214 (Canterbury Hospital Radio) and Kent University Radio. Jonathan was also programme controller and producer at Radio Wexham in Slough for several years during the 1980s. Jonathan's interests include computers, electronics, amateur radio, photography, making videos, model railways and music (of all types).
