Steve is from South Wales - he is also half-Italian - but somehow a four year spell working on Teesside has left him a fan of Middlesbrough football club!
He first got into radio when he found himself at university studying for a masters degree in maths.
He realised that a career of talking in-between records and occasionally meeting famous people beat the hell out of becoming a maths teacher or a bank manager (the only two career paths open to people with maths degrees apparently!)
He loves music, a keen gig and festival-goer, and a bit of a runner - feel free to ask him about the one marathon he's finished and the other one he didn't quite finish!
Incidentally, Steve also once held a World Record for the longest radio show ever (he's in the Stop Press section of the 2000 Guinness Book of Records!)
