Mike Read to host Marlow FM breakfast show

Former BBC Radio 1 presenter Mike Read is to host the breakfast show on community radio station Marlow FM till Christmas.

Mike, who lives locally, has just left United DJs and will be part of an expanded Nation Radio from January, but agreed to join the service in the meantime.

He’ll host the show live from Marlow FM’s studios each weekday between 7am and 9am starting Monday 16th November.

Managing director Graham Duthie said: “There’s a lot Mike can teach us, and we’re sure his years of experience will rub off. We also hope having Mike on the team will increase awareness of our current fundraising drive to see the station safely into 2021.”

Mike Read added: “Marlow FM’s my local radio station. I know how important it is to the community here, especially during lockdown, and I’m excited to present their breakfast show for a little while.”

Marlow FM’s current breakfast presenters will be appearing on other shows across the weekly schedule in the meantime.

The community radio station also has a fundraising drive ongoing at the moment – details of which you can see here.
