Hi, I’m Ben Astell. I’m an aspiring broadcaster hoping to make it into music radio; I have a passion for new music from a variety of different genres from Dance to Disco, and Rock to Rap. I go to gigs, listen to new music, recommend bands, and promote new music via my twitter (@Ben_Astell). I also have a keen interest in cricket, tennis, formula 1, and football; I’m a Liverpool FC supporter, occasional football player, keen photographer and part time Tin Tin look-a-like!
I have a wealth of radio presenting and producing experience including: reading the news and co-presenting the drive time show on Radio Cardiff, presenting my own new music and talk show on University of Glamorgan’s student station Tequila radio, and producing the Cardiff City Phone In.
If you love music as much as I’ve hopefully convinced you I do, this is the place to be! I’ll be blogging about new bands that I’ve discovered, reviewing new tracks I’ve heard, and suggesting albums and EP’s that I think you should be buying right now.
