Some say I shouldn't be left alone on computers, others believe I have a great sense of humour. I'm Geoff and I present along with my compatriot Bob on the Sunday Rock show 12pm to 3pm.
I have been broadcasting since 1991, starting on a university station, then moving on to short term FM stations, cable radio, internet radio and now many stations around the world with two programmes, the Chill Factor and Dance Classics.
Tom has a rich heritage in broadcasting - freelancing in the industry until he established himself in independent local radio in the West of England in 2000. This led to him joining BBC Local Radio in 2005 where he remained for many years. Further radio appearances have included stints on stations in south east England and the Netherlands. Outside the studio he is a published author, a video producer/director, and still has time to follow his passion of walking in the countryside.
Josh has been part of Cando since being a student and likes sharing his music with everyone
Russ is a familiar face in local theatre and now he is a regular on Cando radio with his Drivetime shows and also ShowStoppers. With a relaxed light personality Russ brings out the best in all of his guests from local community stalwarts to members of the local theatre and his shows are always informative and entertaining. He is proud of Cando's commitment to promoting community events so please get in touch if you have any local events coming up or just want to promote your group. He would love to chat to you.
Catflea Massacre: some say he was born of royalty, some say he’s just an idiot with great style. We at CandoFM know both are true. Playing all sub genres from early Ska, the first realisation of Reggae, through to exclusive access to pre-release albums, Catflea Massacre surprises and titivates the Presenters chair, which he adorns with parades of pork pies. In a rare and glorious moment Mr Massacre (as he asks us to call him) said, the show is “A torrential tirade of totally tip top tunes to tantalise the tastebuds and tickle the tympanic membrane. So, tie in tightly, turn turtle and tie dye a tank top.” As they say, ‘he’s an idiot’.
One half of those two nutty ladies: Ukes2. Paula enjoys biscuits and getting things done.
Joan is often known as the right side of the popular Ukes2 duo who have for a number of years playing at various gigs in the area, supporting local charities and mic nights with their up tempo covers and general supportive aura. Joan has been a keen member of Cando since December 2017 when she and her daughter Paula (the left side of Ukes2) started presenting. Ukes2 now have 3 feel good hours throughout the week often giggling about their experiences and memories from around Barrow and the antics they get up to. Being a mother and daughter they have a strong bond and are often seen out and about giggling over something. Joan has a strong history in Barrow and loves nothing more than reminiscing about the area and all the positives it has. When Joan is not in the studio, she loves spending time with her husband Bernard who is famous for his love of all things cake and food along with her beloved dogs as well as spending time with her children and grandchild plus furry grandson!
Shaun Blezard has been a musician and community artist in the area for over 30 years and brings his love of the less mainstream musical genres to CandoFM
