Dan is a local Tameside lad born and raised in Stalybridge.
Dan has spent over 11 years in radio and is also a mobile DJ in his spare time....if he actually gets any bookings !!
Dan is a massive Manchester United fan (Please don't hold that against him), in his spare time he likes to go to Old Trafford just to sample the odd pie and to get away from his wife. Dan is always looking to play a practical joke, Who will it be next?
Dan is known to be the dark side of the team.He is probably a radio program manager worst nightmare. Sometimes his quick comedy lines and wit could get him in trouble. The phrase of the show is ''anything could happen' when Dan and Mark are on air.
Dan has been part of Tameside Radio since 2010 and now co-hosts the #WeAreTameside show with Mark Andrews.Sadly Dan was drawn the short straw and couldn't pick his work partner.
We asked him to describe what it’s like working on the show. “I'm privileged to work on Tameside radio, I am originally from Stalybridge.I’ve worked with Mark for over 10 years (As you can tell by my boyish good looks it's taken its toll) and the best way to describe our show is like two blokes in a pub playing music and having a bit of banter...
On a serious note working with Mark Andrews is fantastic, We have such a good laugh and it's hard to think this is work.Mark brings everything you could think of in his holdall. Mark's holdall contains everything (apart from his kitchen sink) mainly moist wipes,Odd snacks and a phone charge cable. Mark is also a big anorak on trains so between you and me he will be likely to pull a train timetable out.
Dan goes on to say... “ My passion in life is to entertain and make people smile. Life's too short and I love broadcasting to the amazing people of Tameside. This is a fantastic privilege living and working here across the borough. Over the years I've met hundreds of great people and heard some wonderful stories here at the heart of our local community''.
Tameside Radio is going from strength to strength. It’s committed to not only making great entertainment but also to be focused on real people, supporting local businesses and providing a platform for the local community!”
