Rob was born in Nottingham and at an early age he discovered the “wonderful world of Radio”, in particular Emperor Rosko and later the legendary Kenny Everett.
Rob began his broadcasting career in 1982 working for a local hospital Radio Station at Wythenshawe Hospital, Fab Radio.
In 1986 Rob got his first paid Radio shift. This was presenting the breakfast show on a station in Southern Ireland called ‘Radio West’.
Later in the same year Rob went to work for the ‘Voice of Peace’ in a very sunny Israel.
After just under 6 months Rob left Israel to be a presenter on another great Pirate Radio Station Radio Caroline on board the Ross Revenge in the English Channel.
In January 1990, Rob was offered a job on the legalised ‘KFM’ and was the station’s first breakfast show presenter.
After working on various UK FM radio stations, in 2003 a former Voice of Peace colleague called Dave Asher asked Rob to work on ‘Magic 999’ in Preston where he presented the Afternoon Show and then the Breakfast show for 6 years.
You can hear Rob Charles every Sunday on Tameside Radio between 3pm and 5pm with his weekly ‘Songs that don’t get played on the radio anymore’ show.
