Rodney Collins

What show do you present and when?

You can hear my main show every Tuesday at 6pm! I also present two shows on a Sunday – Gene Pitney and Friends is at 6pm and the Weekend Show at 10pm! I’m also on the Morning Mix, usually from 10am every Thursday!

What do you love most about being at Beverley FM?

I’ve been in this business longer than most! I love the enthusiasm for the station that shows through in all the broadcasts – and I love the fact that every week I get lots of requests from local people living in what is one of the jewels of East Yorkshire, Beverley!

If you could travel anywhere you haven’t already been, where would it be?

Well, I went to the States when I was 19 working for Billboard Magazine – a trade paper out there – and I always said I’d go back and never have. Also, having worked for Radio Luxembourg for fourteen years I loved the little Grand Duchy. The first time I went there was in the early 70s working on the Jimmy Young Show on Radio 1… we visited six EEC countries in six days. But places I haven’t been? I really don’t know.

Where’s your favourite place in East Yorkshire?

I genuinely think Beverley – it’s just a lovely market town.

What’s your favourite comfort food?

Real steak pie but I love seafood, too.
