DJ Juice

 Hobbies and interests – I go to the gym most days, I am a bit of a workaholic so work and hobbies seem to run into each other.

Top 3 songs:      John Miles – Music                   Stereophonics – Dakota                                  Layo Bushwacker – Love story

I originally started doing mobile disco's when I was 14 years old, then moved into DJing in bars and nightclubs across the country working with many famous PA's and bands before getting my own bar/ night club, which I currently have alongside a property development business.  My radio life began after being a big fan of Laser 558 and Radio Caroline; I started in radio with Instore Radio for New Look, then got a big break and went to work at Chiltern Radio, originally doing weather, travel and making the tea! I then progressed to my own show and the Chiltern radio Roadshow's. Soon after that I joined a station in Essex called 1557. I also worked for Jam FM, Midsummer Radio amongst others, in the mid 1990's I did a spell on Radio Caroline out in the North Sea. In 2005 I started DJing for Big L International Radio where I still currently have a show on Saturday afternoons. I started my show on Zack FM in 2011 and took over ownership of the station in 2014.

I always try to believe that if you want something enough, and you work hard enough one day it will happen for you, hopefully that day will come.

 

Steve Penk comes to Zack Fm every weekday morning from 9 am - 11am.

 

What will be in his next phone call !!

Steve Penk is a British radio and TV presenter. He was born in Rusholme, [[Manchester and is renowned for his wind-up calls. Penk has worked for various national and local UK radio stations. Aged just 16 he started his radio career at Piccadilly Radio in 1978 (subsequently rebranded Key 103), where his breakfast show delivered record ratings, the highest in the stations history to this day.

In 1997 Penk moved on to work at Capital Radio London presenting the mid-morning show. On his programme he regularly did his famous radio wind ups. It was during one of these "wind-up" calls that Penk had the idea to call the then British Prime Minister, Tony Blair. He was able to get through the No.10 switchboard and managed to get Blair on the air for a few minutes. Blair later mentioned during Prime Ministers Questions that Penk had prank called him that morning and at that point it became a global media story.

I started DJing at 17 doing mobile disco’s and youth clubs then I landed my first job in a bar in my home town. Then I continuned with the movie disco’s and started ti get more involved in bar and club work.
At the age of 21 I left to take on full time DJ work going to Germany and Austria. Then went on to do a summer season in Corfu which i was working with the PA’s and big name DJ’s. I did this for 3 years working all over Europe I even managed to drop a set in Antigua and Goa. I returned to the UK to carry on with bar and club work from Brighton all the way to Birmingham. Having now moved on to specialise in House and Deep House music I’m still working in bars and clubs and doing my Friday night dance show on Zack, which I get to play the best music on the planet.

I have been involved with playing and presenting for 40 years and at the tender age of 16 I managed to con the local disco suppliers in Chadwell Heath to getting me credit on a £120 RSC Mobile disco. I was by this time working in pubs and clubs in London and Essex and regularly being underage to even be in the establishment. At a very young age I was involved in pirate radio which was...... an experience not to be forgotten.

I went into club management and worked at The Colchester Hippodrome, The Circus Tavern, TOTS The Berwick Manor. Reflex in BSE (later Brazillia) it goes on....

Living abroad I got very little chance to broadcast but on my return I joined a small internet station and then moved over to FM in Ipswich. Here I am at Zack and what fun we have.(Not sure if the station management feel the same!!) I live in Sapiston with Maisie the border collie and Charlie (Mr Woo) the Yorkshire terrier ooh and of course Sharon!

My philosophy is to keep smiling and have fun. My show is quite off the cuff and I seem capable of finding those tunes you want to dance and sing to. I learned to laugh at myself after some awful things in my life which also gave me an insight and empathy of other peoples lives...If you want stability and steadiness then listen to Radio 4...If you want fun on a Sunday tea time then tune in.

Parental warning and for those of a nervous disposition.....This show is often transmitted in my underpants and vest.....
 
 
 
 
 
 Allan Lake

Lake started his radio career at Isle of Wight Radio, working as the teaboy on the Saturday sports show and as producer for the station's veteran phone-in presenter Alex Dyke. This led to his own Saturday evening show, but he was let go by the station after broadcasting a controversial feature named "Bin Laden reads the Bible". After this, he moved to neighbouring station Power FM, before leaving the south coast for Hull to present Late Night Lake at Viking FM. Whilst working at Galaxy Manchester he generated more controversy after comments he made about Pop Idol winner Michelle McManus.[1][2][3]

After a stint at Liverpool's Juice FM, he moved to London and GCap Media's Capital Disney for an evening show named "In on the Lake" from January 2005 to August 2006. Lake was then moved to the Breakfast show on sister station Core. After eight months, the show ended as the station switched to a non-stop music format. During this tame, Lake was also a regular cover presenter for Capital 95.8. He has covered shows for GCap's Coast 96.3 and Red Dragon FM, where he once again generated more controversy over his sacking, after getting listeners to call the programme controller to try to persuade him to hire him, who in turn rehired him.[4] During his time on the Evening show, Lake caused Red Dragon to have its building lease reviewed after he ordered a live cow to be delivered to the studios. Both incidents were radio stunts with the consent of management, Allan continued to be employed by the group throughout. Allan now joins us here at Zack FM

Geoff Carter

Geoff is probably the only person to have done ventriloquism on the radio. Many say he is very good at it!! You don't want to miss, Geoff Carter's Big in the afternoon show! Kev the boy racer often drives into the studio during Geoff's show. He causes havoc while giving you a laugh.

Have a go at the quiz with no name. If you get the correct answer you'll get a certificate from Geoff. He sends it to you telepathically ( clever that,ey? )!  There's great music, humour and mayhem. From 3 until 5pm with Geoff. It's radio like it should be!

Greg Martin

So after a 8 year hiatus where I managed to turn a four week stop gap as a Club DJ in London into something resembling a new career I’ve been offered a chance by the Zack people to come back on the radio and try to sound like I remember what I was doing when I was with SGR FM, Broadland 102 and along the M11 at Q103 in Cambridge 
 
 
I like to run as you spend a few hours in a studio every day its nice to stretch the legs. Taking part in 10k’s and thirteen mile races in Cambridge and London something I’d never have dreamt of a few years ago. I’m dating a Californian so my sports tastes have moved beyond my beloved Arsenal to following the Golden State Warriors and the NFL at Wembley
 
Love the movies, bigger the blockbuster the better. Top Gun is my favourite film and I’ll defend that to anyone, must have been the years at the USAF Air Shows that did it, endless respect for pilots everywhere and more than a little jealousy 
 
Nice to be back on the air. Happy that my Facebook handle makes sense again :) /GMontheradio
