Kenny Ellaway

Ken started his broadcasting “career” in hospital radio at Radio North Angus around 1993. He was a PA to the main DJ and was responsible for the usual tea making and getting records from the library, as well as reading out the top 40 charts on air. He was fired from RNA for allegedly stealing a Michael Bolton CD (true story!). He didn’t steal it, of course, as he has taste, but the boss never liked him much anyway so balls to him. His next adventure in radio was Select 107 in Whitehaven (“Whitehaven and West Coast Cumbria’s Home Of The Hits”) in 1999. He was a Studio Manager and presenter of a few shows on the station, which lasted a month as the station was an RSL (Restricted Service Licence), including the ill-fated 3-6am graveyard shift when absolutely nobody was listening. He then drifted into holiday camp entertaining and eventually found himself on t’radio, playing the tunes you secretly love but would never admit to in public.

On Twitter, he describes himself as: “Presenter of @cheeseshopradio on @wyrelite and @coastcountydab see for details”
