  Steves : Website
 
Having been a great fan of all jazz era music since my teens, I had a strong desire to present ‘my kind of music’ on-air, and from 1992 to 1995 hosted “Gee Dad! It’s A Wurlitzer”, a weekly hour of theatre pipe organ on KPCC-FM, Pasadena, California. On moving to Spain, I pitched a local British station with both a 1925-1965 swing era show and a theatre organ programme and was on-air for some 3 years. I now concentrate on my Hot Pipes podcasts and broadcasts, bringing a new audience to this great and very varied musical art-form, which is not just about a ballroom in Blackpool!

Pick 'N' Mix Show

Presenter List
Having lived through the 1930’s and 40’s I am very familiar with all the music and entertainment that was on the BBC and on the old 78rpm records at that time. I spent my later childhood years enduring all the bombing raids that took place on Portsmouth and found some comfort in listening to the radio. I pursued a career with the Ministry of Defence and was finally posted to Bath where I retired. Wanting something positive to do in my retirement I joined Bath Hospital Radio and was with them for 19 years, much of which was as Programme Director. I look forward to producing many programmes for the 1940’s UK Radio Station..Contact

Presenter List
Welcome to the Anderson Shelter Show with me Bryan Warnett, the only show from an Air Raid Shelter somewhere in deepest darkest West Sussex in Southern England. Whether you want to dance Lindy Hop, Swing, Jive, Balboa or Tap, we bring you the best dance tunes from the 1920's through to the 1940's and even the odd one from 1950's, that are still lighting up the dance floors throughout the world. A keen dancer myself, I believe that the music will never die as long as we reach out to the younger generations and what better way to do that than to whirl them across the floor!.

While growing up Jay always wanted to have his own Dance Band. His father introduced him to this music by dragging him off to the famous Hub Ballroom in Edelstein, Illinois hearing bands as Guy Lombardo, Tiny Hill, Russ Morgan and Horace Heidt & his Musical Knights.   After high school Jay fronted a Big Band.  But Rock & Roll hit and the big band was put aside for a career in radio and television. Jay first heard about The UK 1940s Radio Station on the internet as he was traveling. Jay enjoyed hearing the level of original archive broadcast programs from the 1940s. Jay offered his expertise to help The UK 1940s Radio Station’s goal to promote the music in the UK and Stateside

Though my day job has always been teaching, I am a long-time devotee of trad jazz and swing from the 20s and 30s. And as someone who has wanted to have his own radio show ever since listening to the pirate stations back in the 1960s, I am thrilled to be joining the UK 1940s Radio Station. I am also involved in the bid for a radio station to serve North Cheshire
