Friday Mornings on Radio Glan Clwyd
Gareth McCormick is live on air every Friday morning, and from January 2017 the show is extended to three hours – from 10am to 1pm. His first show was on 9 September 2011, and he continues to entertain listeners with his selection of music from the 1960s up to the present day.
“Welcome to my page. My name is Gareth but a lot of people call me the Gazman, which has my nickname for ages. I look forward to your company on Friday Mornings, where we take a variety of music, a tablespoon of fun, mix it with some humour and interesting facts all in an effort to give you that friendly funky Friday feeling – And that’s a Gazman Show Guarantee!”
Gareth originally joined Radio Glan Clwyd to learn basic broadcasting skills and potentially begin a career in the media industry. He also volunteers with other organisations in the local area, and his other interests include film making, LEGO and reading comics!
The main feature in the show is ‘Gazman’s Timewarp’, where we take a journey through the UK Charts Archive, counting down and playing as many songs from the top 20, both old to the new, as we can.
Other features include:
The Bottom Half of the Chart- Once or twice a month, I go down for a glimpse at the UK Chart Archive from Number 100 and make my way up playing new entries and future Number 1’s.
Funny Bitesize- A occasional compilation for party, kids and comedy hits all rolled into one.
Pop Picker Trivia- a short quiz of music knowledge to test your brain. Pen and Paper at the ready…
