About Steve

Steve started his ‘career’ in radio as a volunteer at Southend Hospital Radio in 1978 and was the station’s youngest member. He spent 10 years hosting specialist programmes such as Spectrum Motown, listener requests shows and reading the news.

Before training to be a journalist, and working in the newsrooms at both Essex FM and BBC Essex – as well as local newspapers – he hosted shows at Radio Top Shop for 3 years and fronted the breakfast show at Basildon Radio.

His pre-taped dance-music shows were broadcast by more than one (land-based) pirate station, and from the 80s to the early 90s he DJ’d at top nightclubs across Essex, Kent and London – such as Dr Zhivago’s, The Zero 6, Electric Blue, Nero’s 2000, Sam Lords, London Hilton, Woody’s…

He hung up his headphones in about 1993, and dusted them off 20 years later to launch 80s dance music show The PleasureDome.

He currently lives in rural New Zealand and records his shows and voice overs in his home studio. He hosts jazz show Cool Nights.

Pleasuredome radio jingles

I would never admit to it publicly, but my passion to work in radio was as much to do with playing the jingles and station imaging as it was the music.

I was hosting shows every day at Radio Top Shop in the early 80s and during the 20 minute drive to ‘work’ I’d listen to either Radio One, my local FM station or Radio Caroline.

Then Laser 558 popped up on the AM dial – and wow, what a great station that was. What a breath of fresh air!

Being in charge of my local Radio Top Shop I quickly adopted the Laser 558 format and style. Fast paced, playing hit after hit. We couldn’t use Laser’s jingles of course – Top Shop had its own jingle package.

But years later hosting The PleasureDome show I can at least offer a nod to Laser and the influence it had on all radio broadcasters in the UK by incorporating some of their jingles (Morse code bleeps and bloops meaning ‘I want to communicate with you’) with my own show IDs.

My only regret is not renewing the Laser558 web domain I once owned (or applying to work on Laser in the 80s).
