Meet Nigel. He was born in Manchester and grew up in Looe, Cornwall.
He is now living near Niagara Falls in Canada and is slowly making his way back to Cornwall to live, as most of his family live in SE Cornwall & SW Devon, Nigel is often seen a few times a year around Looe, visiting family.
Nigel started to DJ in 1987 by playing tapes of a recorded Top 40 on a cassette mixer while on holiday in Spain and it grew from there.
By 1989 he was the DJ at the Youth Club and over the years progressed & worked in many Bars & Clubs in Manchester & Toronto areas, playing to the Dance music, Disco & House Music crowds.
Now in his later years, he puts together his weekly show for NCB Radio ”Across The Pond”, which basically means the otherside of the Atlantic Ocean, North America!
The show features music primarily from the US Billboard Charts & Canadian Charts, Past & Present, along with new music. Main Genre’s on the programme include Pop/Rock, Country, R&B/HipHop.
Also thrown into his show is his opinions on events that have made the news over the past week in N America, UK or even Cornwall as well as “Pop Culture” which has included some memorable rants about “artists” such as Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber.
Young or old, Bangladeshi or British, we think you will find Across The Pond very entertaining. (we’d rather you found out for yourself though!). Catch Nigel every Sunday 9pm GMT (4pm ET).
