I’ve worked in radio for the best part of 10 years as a presenter, producer, editor and brand and integration specialist. Externally, I guess I’m best known for my shows The Unsigned Show (on Kerrang! Radio) and The Alex Baker Show (on Kerrang! Radio).
Discovering new music is my life so The Unsigned Show is really at the backbone of everything that I do. I don’t have a producer, no one tells me what to play, I listen to every submission I receive, choose the music that I believe in and play it on Wednesday nights at 10pm on K! Radio. Over the years there’s been a heap of successes, but I’m not wanky enough to write them myself, so here’s some other people to tell you about them:
Outside of my on-air work, I’m Head Of Commercial Programming for Kerrang! Radio, Planet Rock and Absolute Radio – working as a creative, to integrate clients into the fabric of the stations’ output, in the most engaging ways.
