Get to know Stuart
Have you got any nicknames?
Stu / Coxy / short keeper (I play in Goal!)
First song you bought?
The first song that was bought for me was Yes Sir I Can Boogie by Baccara (I was only about 2 at the time but used to sing it all the time!). The first song I bought with my own pocket money was probably This Ole' House by Shakin' Stevens!
What’s your karaoke song of choice?
Probably Baggy Trousers by Madness!
Favourite artist you’ve seen live?
There are so many to choose from.... Top 5 (in no particular order) - U2, Jamiroquai, Beyonce, Prince and Madness
What’s your “go-to” song to put you in a good mood?
Jamiroquai - Space Cowboy (Morales Classic Mix) - a proper dance anthem!
What got you into radio?
I have been a DJ in clubs for about 25 years but when I was at school I wanted to pursue a career in radio. I did my work experience in Y10 at Beacon Radio (now part of Free Radio) and I loved sitting in with their presenters watching their shows. When I went off to university I ended up training to be a teacher instead so the radio dream went out of the window! I've always loved music and have a large and varied collection of vinyl and CDs although I'm running out of room for them all!
Have you got any hidden talents?
Depends if you call them 'talents'! I can name every Christmas Number 1 single from 1952-2019 from memory if that counts... I still like to think I'm a pretty good goalkeeper but these days the joints ache a bit after a match!
Anything else we should know about you?
I'm a supporter of Walsall FC and have been since I was about 4. My day job is a Primary School Headteacher - and yes I dJ the school discos!
