The Big Band Show

With Dougie Weake

Thursday 8:00 pm trending_flat 10:00 pm

What show do you present and what times?

I present The Big Band Show Thursday nights from 8pm ’til 10pm.

What do you love about your job at YO1 Radio?

I love the chance to be able to bring the best music to our audience – combined with some cheeky chat.

If you weren’t doing this, what would you be doing instead?

I’d be a professional drummer – I’ve been drumming since I was nine and have played with some top UK bands.

What is your favourite past time?

I have two past time favourites: Drumming (it’s in my blood), and golf – I was a club champion.

Name a little-known fact about you?

I am a fully qualified drone pilot and I once played with my band in Buckingham Palace for the Royal family. A very little-known fact is that I was Chairman of the Phoenix Parascending club and am a qualified instructor.

What’s your favourite place in York?

Sitting in the Museum Gardens on a warm sunny day.
