Station Manager/Radio Presenter

His eclectic musical taste is reflected in The Baron’s Mix ranging from old school punk through to jazz, blues, country and electronica. You can expect to here the unexpected and the barriers are often pushed.
Punk rock and the teenage discovery of the John Peel show kicked off a lifelong passion for music. Post punk, indie pop, art rock and much more, if it’s good I’ll listen to it and if its great I will share it.

With her husband Roger, Liz enjoys attending live music gigs in the area, especially folk and roots. Liz is a Soroptimist and is in the process of establishing a new Club in Salisbury.
