Get to know Nick
Have you got any nicknames?
No just Nick, I suppose it's short for nickname and short for Nicholas (but only my mum calls me that).
First song you bought?
To be honest I can't remember I've bought thousands over the years. But the first CD single I bought was Boney M's MegaMix from Woolworths in 1992!
What’s your karaoke song of choice?
If I'm being forced to sing play it safe with Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline easy to do and the audience sing it for you. Or I Have been known to sing a version of the Wurzels hit Cider Drinker!
Favourite artist you’ve seen live?
I’ve been lucky to see and work with many legendary artists over the years..... but I'd say my favourite live was Dennis Locorriere from Dr. Hook he engaged the crowd and sounded flawless live.
What’s your “go-to” song to put you in a good mood?
I don't have one! Anything with a beat puts me in a good mood I love all genres and all eras of music.
What got you into radio?
When I was at School I wrote a letter (these were paper things you posted before e-mails) to my local hospital station luckily it got forwarded to a new local FM station that was setting up in the city where I lived so I got involved in that. I've done various popular shows on Local, Regional and National Radio alongside various other careers but you get a passion for Radio it gets in your blood. Several years later I'm here on True Radio and I can say it's a Proper Good Radio Station!!!
Have you got any hidden talents?
I can pull a pint of Guinness, with a shamrock on the head!
Anything else we should know about you?
I eat too much chocolate, sweets and food that's generally bad for me.......oh and I like watching old episodes of The A-Team on freeview.
