Going way back to ‘Pirate Radio Days’. Mike Hayes is one of the ‘Old Gang’, who has been around the Radio scene for ‘Many a Blue Moon’ .
Mike adds – ‘I’m an Old Skool Jock. My interest for being a Dee Jay, was sparked by listening to the ‘Offshore Radio Stations’, broadcasting from ships anchored off the coast or from the old disused Forts. Following their closure, myself and many others were looking to expound ourselves further. And this we achieved by setting up our own Radio stations. In my case I joined the ‘Sutton Commercial Radio Association’ in the October of 1968, which was the ‘core’ which lead to the fledgling ‘Radio Jackie’.. Where I first broadcast myself on a ‘Test Transmission’ on the 16th March 1969! I was latterly with the reborn Radio Jackie from 2003 to 2008 inclusive’, amongst other stations before and since.
‘Heads In’ with Mike Hayes is on Monday to Friday. From 22.00 (U.K. Time)
