It’s said I’ve got the perfect face for radio; therefore I have been involved in numerous presenting projects.
It all started when I produced a radio play back in the 90’s for the local BBC station, carried on with an afternoon music show in Spain and still goes on now.
Coming from a live music background, having played in bands for most of my adult life I decided to make the switch to radio as an additional way of spreading my version of entertainment to the world.
It is a completely different scene, that instead of standing in front of an audience varying your act on the reaction, you are effectively playing to a microphone, This is one of the reasons that the Holly Myami format always addresses a mythical ‘gang’, Audience participation is a big part of the content.
I’ve covered all sorts of broadcasting scenarios, the most nerve-racking of these was doing a last minute drop-in 2 hour live show at the opening of a new radio station.
No team, no backup plan, just me and the mic.
No change from normal then…..
Dick is a musician and D.J. who toured nationally with a 60’s group called The Brymers.
The group is mainly known for their 60’s hits of “Sacrifice” and “I Want To Tell You.” The Brymers still perform and attempt to release an album per year. To date, the group has released five albums
2) 40 Year Brotherhood
3) Where Are They Now
4) Never To Old to R-N-R
5) The Love From Our Soul.
During the last four years many of The Brymers tracks have appeared in movies (i.e. JOBS, Chillerama, Alex of Venice, and TV shows). In 1968 Dick recorded a psychedelic album with a group called Fapardokly (Merrell Fankhauser). One of the tracks was picked up by Warner Brothers and placed on a compilation album a few years years ago (Where the Action Is – 1965 1968 – Los Angeles). The comp album was nominated for a Grammy the year of its release. In addition to recording with The Brymers, Dick continues to record with other rock groups and hosts his weekly radio show called “Dick Lee and 60’s Garage Rock from California.”

Name: Reginald Lee Smith
Born: October 14th 1969
Rapp’N Rex, Disco Bee, Boss, Smif Don, Mr. Smif, Lastbboy.
Reggie started as a young fan of Hip Hop and Rap after hearing Run DMC for the first time. He got stared in music in 1983 where he worked for free at W.E.B.B 1360AM in Baltimore Maryland as a stock boy for on air DJs doing small jobs at the age of 14years old.
He later became a young mix consultant at promotional events and learned the basic engineering skills from Charm City legends like Chuck Nazz, Frank Ski, Mack James and DJ Hoogie Rock.
As time went on, Reggie also got the opportunity to work with other Baltimore Radio Legends like DJ Reggie Reg, (RIP) and DK K-Swift (RIP). Later in his life, Reggie worked with Power 99.9 (NC) as a track editor and mix engineer for three different personalities. In 1987 Reffie Smith was signed to Sony Records as an up and coming Hip Hop artist. No songs were ever released due to contract issues but Reggie has retained all legal rights to his pre-recorded music.
Reggie served 25year in the Army as a communications specialist and retired in 2013 as an Army First Sergeant. During his army tenure, Reffie was able to further hone his Deejay skills by creating and selling mix tapes and playing different clubs in each place he was stationed.
He played clubs in Maryland, Pennsylvannia, Virgina, North Carolina, Hawaii, Missouri, Kansas, Tennessee and Georgia. Reggie has even sold mix tapes and played for clubs in South Korea, Germany, Budapest, Turkey, Paris and Bangkok.
Even though Reggie loves all brands of music, his favourite is Hip Hop, Rap, R&B.
Reggie was given his nickname ‘The Boss’ by a close friend and then group body guard, James ‘BIG JAY’ Wright (NYC) (RIP). He used to say that Reggie always took charge of every musical situation like it was his own project. So he teased him by calling him The Boss.
The Last BBoy is pretty much his old school style of music, in both mixing and rapping, long before B.Boys were spinning on their heads, but the time when they stodd in the clubs and on stage with their arms folded.
Reggies style of mixing music is truly original and if you love music, the Last BBoy, Reggie Smith ‘The Boss’ will never let you down.
The eclectic mix of music that you will hear on The After Eight Show reflects Peter’s own tastes.
Typically, in a single show, you’ll hear some electro pop, rnb, jazz, blues, electronic, world and accoustic folk-inspired tracks. Peter’s old enough to have been a devotee of the great John Peel in the late sixties so, like his radio hero, he is passionate about playing new music by unsigned artists and bands and by those starting out on their careers and building their fanbases. They are the kinds of musicians who you are likely to see on Jools’s Later TV programme in the next series (or maybe one or two series after that).
Every week, Peter invites music submissions to the show’s Twitter and Facebook pages and, by email, to its own website. A substantial number are now sent in every week, many of which are extremely creative, innovative and interesting but are overlooked by other radio stations and shows. This is why Peter devotes so much time selecting the music for each show and it’s what makes this show almost unique. So, tune in to an episode of The After Eight Show on a Thursday night and see if Peter can achieve his stated ambition of, every week, introducing you to 3, 4 or 5 artists or bands whose names you didn’t know at the start of the show but whose music you will want to go away and explore at the end of it.

Having been given a cheap guitar age 14, Paul became obsessed with pop music and it wasn’t too long before he was playing guitar professionally.
He also took a job as a tea-boy come tape-operator in a small recording studio in London where the likes of Elvis Costello, Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe and other soon to be famous performers were regular customers. This inspired Paul to start his own recording studio, opening the door to being a full time sound engineer & record producer.
The studio was well known for recording jingles & adverts for TV & radio & that eventually led to opportunities in local radio presenting.
