Geoff started his career at the age of 13 and within five years was one of the Mecca Group’s top DJs, being used as their opening act for their new venues nationwide. During the ’60s when package tours were at the height of their popularity, Geoff could be found compering shows with Animals, Kinks, Spencer Davis, Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry, and for the second-ever Led Zeppelin show.
In 1974 became one of Radio Hallam first voices when the station launched, being the new commercial station for Sheffield. In the ’70s, Geoff also worked on Q102 in Florida, USA and KZUN in Dallas. In the ’80s, you’d have heard him on the legendary pirate radio station, Sunshine Radio.
His shows have reached a cult status and Geoff has performed over 2660 interviews over the last few years, including members of Queen, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, The Wrecking Crew, Eagles, Chicago, Sir Cliff Richard, Genesis, Status Quo, Blondie, The Searchers, Slade, Toto, Rick Astley, Foreigner and Jethro Tull… and that’s just the start of the list! The show continues to draw huge names to be interviewed both live on the telephone and in the studio.
Geoff records three unique shows each week – Solid Gold ’60s, Supersonic ’70s and Kick Up the ’80s… all three of which are currently playing here on VYPA Radio.
