Dean Martin joins Great British Radio lineup

Ex-Capital Gold presenter, Dean Martin, has joined the on-air team at Great British Radio.

The station, which broadcasts on DAB+ digital radio in and around London, officially launched in April with the financial backing of Pimlico Plumbers millionaire Charlie Mullins.

From August, Dean will present a 5-8pm weekday show as well as a Sunday evening request show, on between 6-10pm.

He says: “I’ll be inviting the public to dedicate their favourite tracks to birthdays, anniversaries or just to say thank you to an unsung hero. I’ve always had that close interaction with listeners, which I think is important. I think too many radio stations today are at risk of losing touch with their audience.”

He joins his former Capital Gold colleague Mike Osman, who presents Great British Radio’s breakfast show.

Mike welcomed his old colleague to the station: “Great British Radio is very excited to announce that the brilliant broadcaster Dean Martin will join us on August 1st. Dean will play a key role in our mission to entertain the British public with great laughs, great music and great guests.”
