Hi there and welcome to my website!

If you are unlucky enough to have met or personally know me, there is really no need for you to be viewing this website. However, if you are a regular listener to one of my radio programmes and (for some reason) you would like to discover more about me, then you have come to the right place.

My name is Gavin (better known as Gavlar to my family and friends), and I have a very keen interest in computing, gadgets, photography and everything that's technical. Oh, I'm also a volunteer radio presenter and producer based in the Cambridgeshire area of East Anglia.

I currently present and producer a radio programme called The Request Fest, which can be heard on Embrace Radio every Saturday afternoon from midday, and at other times on other stations. For full details, please check out my Request Fest website.
About Me
I first got interested in radio presentation and production back in 2002, whilst assisting the IT department at Huntingdonshire Regional College. Here I met long-term friend Terry Turner, who at the time was looking to setup a radio station for the college, which eventually started broadcasting online, under the name Kewlistic Radio.

Then in 2005, I along with the help of my Mum (Julie), Dad (Colin) and close friends setup an online radio station called Generation Mix, which ran very successfully for 18 months and featured around 70 presenters.

Following the closure of my station, I continued to present, co-present and produce a number of custom and syndicated programmes for stations such as Cambridgeshire Internet Radio, CMP Radio, Cityvibe Mix, Cityvibe Radio, Crystal Sound Radio, DMR Radio, Fenland Radio, Gravity Digital Radio, Kewlistic Radio, Ramsey Community Radio, Reach OnAir, Variety UK, Venture Radio and You Love It We Play It, just to name a few!

In my spare time, i like to turn gamer, and can usually be found in my 'man pad' or bedroom on Grand Theft Auto. However, when I'm not gaming, I like to socialise on Facebook and Skype with friends.
Have you ever wanted to be the radio presenter?

Have you ever wanted to pick and choose your favourite tracks and get them played on the radio?

If you answered yes to both of the questions above, then you are in luck - because I present a weekly 2 hour radio programme called The Request Fest, which allows you to do both of those things.

It's super easy... If you have access to a landline telephone or mobile phone (and you have the bill payer's permission), just give me a call anytime on 01487 686 020. Don't worry about waking me up in the middle of the night, as you won't actually get to speak to me in person. However, you can leave me a brief message, letting me know who you are, where you are calling from, what song you would like to hear and your reason for choosing that song.

If you would like to leave a special dedication and request for a special somebody or loved one (such as an Anniversary or Birthday), please ensure that you leave a message up to a week before the date of the special occasion, so that I can ensure that your message gets played out at the right time.

All that's left for you to do then, is grab that cuppa, tune in to the show, sit back, relax and wait to hear yourself on the radio.

You can currently hear the programme on Mondays from 4pm on Massive Hits, Tuesdays at 12pm on Radio Seren, 1pm on Geronimo Radio, 2pm on Chippenham FM, Wednesdays at 12pm on Reach OnAir, Fridays from 5pm on Wyrelite Radio, Saturdays from 12pm on Embrace Radio, and Sundays from 12pm on JD Radio.

If you are a Programme Controller or Station Manager of a community, hospital, independent, online, or student radio station, and you are interested in airing the programme, please complete the contact form below with your details (including your suggested days and times of broadcast).
