Join the BOB Mob!

Chris joined BOB fm in the spring of 2010. He's been in radio ever since he was a lad though. Before then, he spent 4 years or so as a producer at a big London station until we tempted him out into the Hertfordshire countryside for a breath of fresh air. And doughuts.

He's our News Guru at BOB but also does his own show Saturday from 9am.

Birthplace? Grantham in Lincolnshire (Birthplace of the greats...Isaac Newton...and...erm...Margaret Thatcher?!)

School Nickname? Chubs...I'm sure there must have been more offensive ones that I didn't know about!

Favourite film? These questions are difficult on so little sleep! I'm a big fan of Tom Hanks films, but my guilty pleasure has got to be 'The Goonies!'

Favourite TV show? I love the excitement of the rolling news channels when they are genuinely breaking a story. But, I’m also a big fan of 'Blackadder' and 'Top Gear'. Think the TV channel 'Dave'. That pretty much sums up my choice of viewing.

Favourite band? You're expecting me to say ?! I love all the 80s pop stuff, but I think 'The Killers' are fantastic...

What is your favourite town in Hertfordshire? Harpenden is lovely - I have to confess eating out there a little too much!

If you were not a presenter, what job would you want to have? If I were 20 years younger, I'd have to say steam train driver...

What is the most you've ever spent on a pair of shoes? How can I answer this without sounding like a cheapskate?!!

What is your favourite bar or restaurant in Hertfordshire? Choppy's in Ware is nice - friendly staff and buckets of mussells!

Who's the most famous person you've ever met? David Hasselhoff was hilarious, Sir Michael Caine a gent, Sir Patrick Moore was fascinating, George Michael broke out into song...I'm guessing Jedward don't count?!

What are your favourite songs on your iPod? According to my iPhone, my most listened to artists are Florence and the Machine, ELO and a folk group called 'Bellowhead'...not sure what that says about me!

The gadget I use the most is? Does an alarm clock count? Without it I’d never make it into work at 5.30am.

Here's some stuff
we've played...
