Where were you born?
Your favourite hobby and/or present as a kid
Playing on my dad's set. Me and my bro would split his records in half then have a clash.
How you got into being a DJ/presenter
Going with my dad and learning the trade as a lil' boy on pirate radio stations. Even if he gave me a turn to select one tune, I was over the moon.
