Well, it’s a real privilege to be on the radio in the place where I’ve lived for most of my life.

Born and raised in North Notts, I came back after a few years in Lancashire, when I got bored of the rain, and not being able to get a cob for love nor money.

After hanging around at Mansfield 103.2 long enough, and generally refusing to go away, they finally let me loose on the airwaves, where I love bringing you your favourite music, and helping you to win some great prizes, every day.

It’s not all been plain sailing, though – I still have nightmares about the time I had to handle a tarantula live on air. I’ll get my own back on the White Post Farm for that one day...

When I’m not on the radio, my hobbies include eating, and trying not to get dragged into a moshpit at gigs. 


You’ll also find me screaming from the stands at a football or cricket match about how I could do better than the idiots on the pitch, or lumbering around a leisure centre, proving that I really couldn’t do better than the idiots on the pitch.

Matt’s Potted Profile

Born: August 21st, 1991, Kings Mill Hospital.

Career: School in Selston, University in The North, then, via a mind-numbingly tedious spell as a battery hen in an office, and talking on other bits of the radio, I landed here at Mansfield 103.2.

High point: Acquiring the affectionate nickname of ‘Matt Cheekyman’ from a couple of listeners. I hope it’s affectionate, anyway.

Low point: Finding out that the Street Crusader and high stone walls don’t mix. Those vans are wider than you think, you know.

Something You Didn’t Know: I once hitch-hiked to Spain in a weekend.

He says: “That bit in Tom Jones’s version of Kiss, where he growls ‘I think I’d better dance now’, is the greatest moment in pop history.”

Someone says: “He’s far too obsessed with Tom Jones’s version of Kiss.”
