I’ve had the radio bug since the mid-seventies, as all I ever wanted to be was be a full-time radio broadcaster! Life took me in a different direction and the world of corporate sales beckoned. However, happening in the background were stints as a radio DJ, beginning with pirates Radio Dublin & Sunshine 101FM through to the present day licensed stations – up to a total of 15 stations that I’ve worked with in the past. I’ve also taken forays into hospital radio (St James) and TV presenting (City Channel).
Since 2013, I have managed ‘Mark Manning Media’ which is largely a voice-over recording company. I still pop up on the dial in places such as RTE’s ‘The History Show’. Someday I hope that my Christmas wish will come true – to return to radio for good!
