Hello, I’m Mark Thomas. I have always wanted to work in radio as a presenter. I would play my dad’s records with a hand brush as a microphone. I first got involved in radio, when my mum worked in a shop in Liverpool. A man told my mum about hospital radio. She told him about my interest in radio. It was later I got to meet people on the wards & chat to them, playing songs on my show for them. I continued presenting on community radio stations, RSL’s and commercial radio stations on drive time & a Sunday afternoon show. Two of the stations were Bliss Radio and Radio Wave in Blackpool. I have done some interviews for radio. This started off with some of the cast in Les Miserables at the Manchester Opera house, which gained me a front-row seat. I also interviewed some of the cast of the popular Australian soap Neighbours. I had the pleasure of interviewing Sir Ken Dodd, such a lovely man, also Barry Cryer who wrote scripts for The Two Ronnies & Morecambe & wise. I also worked at Radio City in Liverpool assisting Pete Waterman with his Saturday morning show in Liverpool. I got to meet some of the singing artists that worked for him such as the boy group Big Fun & Sonia.
I’m currently working for Bolt Radio which is powered by great management in Liam Kennedy & a great lineup of presenters. I am thrilled to be part of the Bolt Radio family and truly honored to be presenting the evening show and weekend Breakfast. I can’t wait to keep listeners company maybe in the evening when they are relaxing or easing you into your weekend morning, being the first voice you hear while you get ready for your day or maybe setting off for work, making your morning cup of tea or coffee. I’m excited to be on such a fantastic station that plays such good music 24 hours a day. Join me Mark Thomas for 80s vs 90s 8.00pm – 10.00pm and Weekend Breakfast 07.00 am – 10.00 am.
