Our Team

"We had a vision about providing a Radio Station that suited all walks of life but capturing all Communities, run by those in the Community. We wanted a station that appealed to everyone! How many times have you got in the car and had the battle about what station to listen too that would cater for both the kids and mum and dad? Constantly changing stations to appease both you and the kids! That's where the idea came from for a classic every other with a current song every other - music for everyone with no need to change stations! We want to be the Community 'go to' radio station which is based across South Wales but 'championed' by local communities, bringing communities together."

 

Barrie Jones, Co-Founder of SW20 Radio

"From helping behind the scenes on a radio show, to presenting my own solo show and now setting up our very own Radio Station, all within 2 years is somewhat unbelievable! It shows the desire and passion we have to really create something unique for South Wales. We want to create a Radio Station that simply has better music and better content! We want to challenge the mainstream offerings that South Wales currently has to offer. We want to have shows that caters for everyone as well as promoting local and unsigned talent. We want to be their platform! We want to support all communities across South Wales through our brand, platform and support to bring that "Feel good factor" back to local radio! Online Radio is growing so fast and we are excited to be part of that journey here at SW20 Radio."

Chris Jones, Co-Founder of SW20 Radio

Andy Dubberley

Presenter

Hello folks, Dubberley here.

My absolute passion is ska, Two Tone and reggae music, closely followed by beer and trifle.

I’ve been DJ-ing since I was about 15 so you’d think I’d have got the hang of it by now.

Hobbies include frequenting ska festivals, buying more Fred Perry shirts than I need, and wishing my scooter was more reliable.

In real life I’ve spent over 25 years as a chauffeur and security sort, driving nice cars and looking bewildered on red carpets.

Rich cut his DJing teeth on Vinyl and to this day is a huge advocate and would recommend any up and coming DJ to try and learn on Vinyl if they can. It is an art in itself. Now moving

with the times and now produces sets on CD’s and DJ controllers.  All of his current DJ sets focus around ‘Yester Year’ and take us back to the music we grew up listening and playing.

Rik Jones

Presenter

Hi there, I'm Rik and bizarro world is my local where up is down, square is peg and chocolate is Eddie Izzard. I have a degree in Theatre & Film that I have not used in 14 years but I have recently decided thats going to change so its back to getting out there!. Huge lover of voice over skills and anyone who can put on a great character but be warned I can and will often generate a suitably strange character voice when needed. Comics, Movies, trashy sci-fi and weird hobbies are always on the front line for distracting me. 

I like to delve into the dark crevasses of the music world looking for new or unnoticed treats for the eardrums while occasionally coming back to the surface for some commercial "catchiness".

I will find your odd metal band you think is unnoticed and all your synths will belong to me!"

Gareth Walters

Presenter

Hi, I’m Gareth, a dad of two and a university Laboratory Manager. 

This seemed like a great opportunity to try something new so here I am! 

Despite being a complete novice, the one thing I was sure of was the theme I’d like for the show.  There is one decade which for me is punctuated by brilliant music, regardless of genre – the 90's. 

So whether you’re playing air guitar to Radiohead, chilling to Sneaker Pimps, sliding around the kitchen to Jamiroquai, or a secret Take That fan, tune in to The 90's Show on Fridays at 6pm to hear the best that the 90's had to offer.

Hi I'm Schen from the Rik and Schen show.

Like a certain comedy sketch from a little UK BBC show, I am the official carer for Rik, in that I wind his batteries up and let him go.

So whilst I am new to radio its all good because I have been told I have the perfect face for it.

I have been working behind the scenes for a little while but now it's my time to shine! This moment has been years in the making!

Music tastes.....well you'll just have to wait and see as I don't even know at times. No serious...I genuinely don't!
