Terry was brought up in Wirral, located over the water from Liverpool. He attended Plessington High School where his love of science and engineering were well fed. After training as an engineer in the early 80’s, the industry locally collapsed, so Terry packed his bag and headed South.
London offered the opportunity for Terry to try everything from body guarding and security work to engineering for several organisations such as IBM, Telecom and even working within City of London financial organisations, culminating with a high flying job move to London Transport as a Field Engineer.
Terry returned to Wirral to take up a career in Local Government, retiring following his final roll as an Emergency Communications Officer. Shortly after, he made his home here in Lincoln and can’t imagine living anywhere else.
He joined Lincoln City Radio in 2014 as a member of the admin team.
His musical claims to fame are, waving at Kim Wilde in London, attending what he thinks may have been a party with Bananarama and working security for Maxi Priest. Probably the main claim would be coming from the Mersey Basin, the cradle of modern music, start at the Beatles and work up.
His musical tastes are eclectic, maybe even a little chaotic; Folk/Celtic, Pop, Rock, 60’s crooners, 80’s and Electronica (of course) and classical.
Terry has always been an avid radio listener, as well as his PE kit and books, his school duffel bag always contained a transistor radio. Local radio and Radio Luxembourg were great favourites, but the broadcasts of John Peel were an education in music listening, the influence of which he still feels today. (He also insisted we mention Terry Wogan. Right, that’s that out of the way).
