Jonathan Charles joins K107 for weekly vinyl radio show – RadioToday
Former BBC foreign correspondent and radio presenter Jonathan Charles joined K107fm for a weekly show.
He will be on the Kirkcaldy-based station with his son Max and host The Vinyl Countdown every Saturday at noon.
Jonathan started at BBC Radio Nottingham in 1980 and went on to work for Radio WM, Radio Oxford, Radio London, Radio 1 Newsbeat, and covering at 5 Live.
On television, he covered 29 wars and conflicts for nearly three decades as the BBC’s foreign correspondent and presenter.
Jonathan says, “I love radio and music on vinyl. It’s great to bring these two passions together on K107 FM. I have spent three decades on local and national radio and television and wherever I have traveled in the world I have always taken music with me.
“There is nothing quite like being surrounded by my library of 7 and 12 inch records. It’s a real privilege to pick a few to play for you.
“Join me every week for The Vinyl Countdown where I try to teach my young son, Max, some great vinyl records from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s.”
