From a very tender age, Jerry tuned into Radio Caroline and Radio London on his dad's portable Ever Ready Radio and Westminster Radiogram and has been infected with the radio bug ever since. He joined Hospital Radio Maidstone in the 70s, and approached a number of stations looking for work. After working as a Volunteer Programme Assistant and Tape Reclaimer at BBC Radio Medway in Chatham Kent (now BBC Radio Kent) in 1981, Jerry scored a job working as Ships DJ on the Olau Finn and Olau Britannia MK1 for Olau Ferries Sheerness UK to Vlissingen NL which was the nearest he got to legally to playing music on The North Sea.
Jerry started with Radio Caroline in January 1986 and on his very first day on the Ross Revenge very nearly poisoned the crew with a round of coffee made from “Sea Water” by mistake, and got bitten on the ankle by “ Raffles” Peter Chicago’s dog who hated people running about on the ship.
After his final stint at sea on the Ross in 1990, Jerry joined Mellow 1557 in Frinton on Sea, and has been heard on Invicta Fm / Supergold, KFM, TLR, Medway FM, European Klassik Rock, CTFM, KMfm, a brief stint on land-based Radio Caroline and the re-imagined EKR from Maidstone.
In addition to his shows for Coast and County Radio, Jerry presents a regular night time show on 107.8 Radio Jackie in SW London.
