The Voice - Local Radio for North Devon - Broadcasting from Barnstaple on DAB Digital Radio and on 106.1 & 107.8 FM

Roy Grimes

I have had an interest in radio and music since my early teens. Back in the 1970’s I used to listen to radio Luxemburg on Medium Wave (1439kHz). Those were the days, when the sound of radio came complete with whistles, pops hisses and whines!

Later in life I have presented for Tarka hospital radio as well as, briefly, for Anka hospital radio in Warwickshire. In the late 1990’s I had my first taste of presenting on FM radio, when I presented ‘stand-in’ shows at Lantern FM, which really gave me the bug!

I have been involved with what would develop in to The Voice right from its conception when I began producing and presenting shows for the internet based Network 1 and also Network North Devon, which began following the announcement of the closure of local radio in North Devon. It is very rewarding to be involved with the re-birth of North Devon’s local radio service, on DAB and hopefully soon on FM too.

My taste in music is varied, even eclectic! Personally I enjoy listening to all genres of music from 1950's through to the latest sounds. I believe that radio is at its best when it is interactive, so check out my show on Thursdays between 6-10pm and whilst listening, take the plunge and get in touch. Look forward to hearing from you.

A totally self indulgent show for me ... I get to play whatever I want! Like a kid in a sweetshop .... the world of music is mine  ( evil laugh ) 

If you suggest an artist or group, I will pick the song - don't suggest the usual tho - I won't be playing the usual radio fodder so if you suggest Cheryl ( whatever her name is now ) or One Direction, expect to be mocked hideously!

As Forest Gump said " the music's like a box of chocolates .... you never know what you're gonna get".

 Anything from Sweet to Ella Fitzgerald. From Laurie Anderson to the Stylistics. Van Morrison, Van McCoy. Billy Idol, Billy Fury. Showaddywaddy, Bright Eyes.

An awesome selection every Sunday.

Call me 01271 323010 during the show if you'd like to suggest your artist.
