Nigel's links with local radio date back to the 70's and 80's when he was based at the iconic Electric House building in Ipswich as part of the team at Radio Orwell. He stayed with Orwell/SGR until the end of the 90's when his career took him on a journey overseas with the British Forces Broadcasting Service presenting radio shows to military personnel and their families in such diverse locations as Cyprus, Falkland Islands, Brunei, Gibraltar and Canada.
Despite having had the opportunity to live and work in some wonderful locations over the last few years, Nigel and his family have always regarded Suffolk as being home, and are now back living in this part of the world they love and know so well.
Meanwhile Ipswich lad Patrick caught "the radio bug" listening to Radio North Sea International. "This was before local radio came to my hometown, the presenters played great music and sounded like they were having a ball out there even in a force seven!"
Whilst still at school, Patrick was a founder member of Hospital Radio Ipswich, then, in 1975 he joined Radio Orwell the day before it went on air in October 1975. "I was lucky to enjoy a broadcasting career that took me around the world with the forces broadcaster BFBS, and now I'm back home, it's back to my roots with local radio at Ipswich 102".
