Stratford College student in running to be new John Peel

Ian Hughes 29th Oct, 2016

THE AIRWAVES are the home of a former Stratford College student after he landed his dream job.
Liam Clarke has taken his first step to becoming the new John Peel after landing a job, showcasing new and up-and-coming bands on Touch FM.
The 21 year-old host ‘First Break’ every Sunday evening and he is already winning listeners over with his enthusiastic and passionate presenting style.
Liam – who studied Creative Media at college – said: “My hero in radio was always John Peel. I even listen back through his shows now as inspiration. I love to create that personal touch for the listener and talking to them one-on-one.
“I like to joke around so it’s quite light hearted but it provides a great platform for unsigned artists.
“Also, if our listeners aren’t sure what to do on a Friday or Saturday night, we’ll tell them where the best gigs are. It’s all about the community and we’re here to support the local music scene.
“My dream has always been to host the Radio One breakfast Show and replace Jools Holland on Later Live. Quite ambitious I know”
