All OUTREACH RADIO presenters are people from or with a strong connection to our local community or area.

They’ve all very kindly given up their time, and volunteered to produce and present wonderful regular programmes on OUTREACH RADIO. Some of them had previous radio experience, other’s didn’t, but they were all willing to join in and give it a try, as way to share something positive, entertaining and informative with the community they cherish.

Osman Sen-Chadun aka Oz or DJ Oz

I'm the founder and Managing Director of Outreach Radio, and have lived in Chandler's Ford for 23 years. I've been involved in radio, TV and online broadcasting for nearly 35 years, mostly on the business & technical side, but also as a radio presenter on pirate radio (in a past life!) & on community radio.

I'm passionate about all types of music, particularly Reggae & World Music, and personally specialise in 'tropical music genres'; Reggae, Sega, Soca, Zouk, Reggaeton, etc - my parents are from Mauritius, so I guess its in my blood! I listen to everything, from Reggae to Classical & Opera, Jungle/Drum n Bass & Hardcore/Techno to French, Italian or Latino, Electro & Hip-Hop to Balkan, Folk Music or Country Pop, and lots more.

I started Lockdown FM as a way to support our local area during the difficult time of the Coronavirus pandemic. The amazing success of this service, and awesome team of people who came forward to volunteer, led me to form Outreach Radio, and establish it as a company designed to support our local area through the power of radio. We are a standalone local company, and not part of any media group. We also operate in a somewhat decentralised way, with programmes produced & presented from presenters homes, thus no travelling/commuting to the studio required... what a great way to keep a low carbon footprint!

You can catch Oz for DriveTime Vibrations from 4-6pm, Monday to Thursday, and for the Island Vibrations show every Saturday from 11am-1pm.

Ian became interested in radio from listening to BBC programmes when he was young. Fascinated by 'Round the Horne', 'I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again' and 'The Goons', Ian started in radio when he was still a teenager, broadcasting on Radio Bahrain, in the Middle East.

Since then, he has stayed with radio, being part of broadcasting the start of the first Gulf War in 1991, and the inaugural Formula One race in the Middle East in 2004. Ian has broadcast during every time slot during the day (and night) and brings a great deal of practical experience to the job.
Ian was awarded the Khalifa bin Salman Press Award in 2019 by the Prime Minister of Bahrain for contributions in the media sector.

Away from broadcasting, Ian is a qualified Teacher of English as a Second Language and has taught for over 20 years. He also enjoys travelling and has visited many countries experiencing the huge variety in cultures and culinary traditions (another love) and can discourse on many and varied topics regarding travel, music, motorbikes and interesting people.

Since moving back to the UK in November 2020, Ian has been busy setting up a studio to record Audiobooks and currently has over 20 titles available through Audible, Amazon and iTunes, including the award-winning ‘Ransom Drop’ by Rob Phayre.

Ian joined Outreach Radio in May 2021 and thoroughly enjoys being part of another diverse and enthusiastic team of dedicated broadcasters.

Philip Petty (aka Pyro)

Hi, I am Pyro,

I have been a big music fan all my life. Started getting into music big time when I was at school. My first proper gig was Saxon in 1980 at Portsmouth Guildhall. I then got the bug for heavy metal. I then spent the 80's going to gig after gigs. I particularly liked the Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donnington.

I got given the nickname Pyro when i was about 20 years old due to my fascination with a mates open fire and not setting fire to anything, honest!

I am a big Star Trek and Doctor Who fan. I am into American games shows and often stay up late to watch my favourites Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune on ABC. I love to travel and often visit the Canary Islands. In 2019 I went to New York and got to see Country singer Carrie Underwood at Madison Square Garden.

I have been involved in radio for 8 years presenting The Rock Monster Show following in the footsteps of Tommy Vance who presented The Friday Rock Show on Radio 1 who influenced me to want to do it. I spent 7 years on Vectis Radio and 1 year as a independent podcast.

I believe the RockMonster is unique, playing the best mix of classic rock prog and blues on radio. I play a wide range of styles of rock from Fleetwood Mac to Motorhead and much more. Tune in and you might be amazed at what I play.

Email Philip:

You can catch Pyro every Monday from 10pm-midnight for the Rock Monster show.

Andrew Kingshott

Hi my name is Kingshott. I am a DJ and multidisciplinary artist, (visual arts to sound art & everything in between).

Originally from Selsey in West Sussex, I relocated to Wexford over a decade ago. I'm Interested in all styles of music. Growing up, my first experience with music was hearing Rock 'n' Roll and Soul being played at home, then around 1987, l was given The Buzzcocks, Singles Going Steady, album from 1979.

By this time l was starting to be influenced by Hip-Hop music coming out of the U.S.A which lead me to an interest in Funk and Soul. l wanted to know where the Hip-Hop crews were getting their samples from.

This second Summer of Love was also in 1988, with the Acid House scene and hearing the Detroit techno from the mid '80s - and lets not forget Chicago House music.

At this time music was a hot mixing pot of styles, and then a mate who was a an "Indie kid" lead me to the indie scene and Manchester scene attending gig's, warehouse parties etc. Acid House was interesting to me because the DJ's were not playing only one sort of music. It was a journey into music and a style of DJ'ing that l myself like anything goes, which is what l try to do.

Along side the music, the art around each subculture interested me - the Punk art, the B-Boy scene with its graffiti, and breaking dancing, the art and graphics coming out of the Manchester scene with its unique style and aesthetic.

Music has the power to make us smile and bring us to all types of tears. It can carry us back in time and inspire us to dance in the moment. For all our happiest days, there is music. The thing l love is how it is all connected and it unites people, bringing us all together.

Email Andrew:

You can catch Kingshott every Wednesday from 8-10pm for the Funk & Soul Selection, every Friday from 7-8pm for The Weekend Warmup and every Saturday from 8-10pm for the Fusion Club Mix.

Mike Joyce aka The Music Man

38 years in the DJ business before retirement, many of you may remember me from The Southampton Ice Rink for which I became a DJ
by pure chance.

I felt like running a mile when the resident DJ asked if I would sit up on the stand in front of a few hundred skaters while he ran to the little mans room... poor me considering I only went up to ask for a song to be played!

Well, after a few weeks I had a chance to be in the hot seat, or in my case a freezing cold seat, to play some classic tracks and of course some unforgettable speed session tunes to which I was asked to play again years after the Ice Rink closed in 1988.

My second home sadly closed but I was given a chance to shine again with my own F.A.L decks, 50W speakers and a couple of box lights & rope light to go with it, and so The Penny Farthing Disco was born - and yes I was a fan of the TV series the Prisoner, complete with a Penny Farthing bike badge.

As the years went by and I got a little older, and a little wiser, I invested in a laptop and quality lights & speakers, and the name changed to "Music Man's Golden Oldies Disco".

I have worked in clubs, pubs, social clubs, carnivals, charity functions, private functions etc. Finally getting a chance to work in hotels, courtesy of a certain DJ who saw potential in me (bless him). I love 60's & 70's music, and after my retirement a couple of years ago, due to health issues, I have been given the opportunity to join the team of DJ's on Outreach Radio with my own 50's & 60's hour, and Ice Rink Memories show.

I feel blessed.....Thanks guys.

Email Mike:

You can catch Mike on Sunday's on Outreach Radio with Sounds of the 50's & 60's from 1-2pm and Ice Rink Memories from 6-8pm.

Gordon Cooper

I bought my first single in 1969....."Sugar Sugar" by The Archies!!! I continued collecting rather a cross section of music until my best friend bought me "Burn" by Deep Purple for my eighteen birthday!! That was it....I became a life long "rocker" from then on!!

So my first love is ROCK, as is my second & third love.....although The Carpenters are my guilty pleasure!! Growing up in the 70's was the best era for music, hence me jumping at the chance to do a Seventies show for you (with a smattering of Rock, I'm sure!!).

My love of Radio has been going for more years than I care to remember.....25+ years with Sunshine Radio on the Isle of Wight & a stint on internet radio with Vectis Radio for eight years!

A final thought....If someone had told me in 1969 not to collect the 6000 plus albums I collected over the decades because you'd be able to access them & more on a mobile phone that fits in the palm of your hand I'd have never have believed it!!! Mind, I did enjoy collecting them!!!

Email Gordon:

You can catch Gordon with the 70's Show on Sunday's from 2-3pm.

I’m now very excited to present, along with my wife Georgette and other friends within the local amateur theatre community, a new arts-based weekly programme “Sunday Show Night” on Outreach Radio.
