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 Saturday at 9 am
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.

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.
