Before setting up his own company Paul worked for over two decades in the radio industry. Paul's highlights included producing a programme called 'The Wonder Years' for Clyde 1, with Stevie Wonder.
Commercial Radio in the UK
Paul worked at radio stations in Devon, Yorkshire, Manchester, East Anglia and Glasgow. Starting as a presenter he worked his way up to be Programme Director for a number of major UK stations, including latterly at Radio Clyde in Glasgow.
With a very talented team Paul took Clyde 1 back to market leading position with record audiences. Promotions featuring the biggest artists of the day helped to drive success. One of those promotions featured achance to win the Mercedes car, featured in a Pink video, with the winner announced by the artist herself, backstage at her SECC concert.
The excitement of that competition led naturally onto something even bigger and better - The Great Guitar Giveaway - with listeners winning a guitar each day signed by some of the biggest music acts in the world.
On this poster you can see all of the artists involved in the competition that was organised by Paul for 102.5 Clyde 1.
