Stephen Bailey is a self-confessed radio nerd who started chatting between records ten years ago when he was first let loose in a radio studio 🎙️. Stephen practiced at a hospital radio station before heading to a Christian commercial radio station in Bournemouth ⛱️. They let Stephen co-present a weekend breakfast show because they could spot talent ✨ - Well, that as well as the fact nobody else was willing to wake up at such an early hour on a Saturday morning! ⏰. Young Stephen spent hours doing whatever he could to learn the art of radio 📻. Some say he learnt & some say not - listen to find out 🔊. Stephen co-presented as well as produced before being asked to do the lot ✨. The station had run out of presenters who were willing to work with Stephen because he was such a radio person 🤓.. Truthfully, Stephen went on to take the reins of Bournemouth’s weekend breakfast programme for over five years before moving on to the big city 🏢.
For someone moving from a little farming village then this was a big step 🌼. Stephen moved to London to continue studying radio 📻. While studying, Stephen could not keep away from the student radio station where he spent most of his time. He did a lot of radio programmes, however, for a lot of these they didn't go out on-air because of numerous technical difficulties which Stephen insists he wasn't at fault for 😉.
Soon as Stephen finished studying he joined Vibe 📻. Stephen puts together Stephen's Sunday each week (Sunday from 9pm to 11pm 🕒) which is a fun weekly radio programme featuring lots of stunning records including a new country and pop track 🎼 & lots of funny things in between too!
