Alan French

Hi, I’m Alan French (Big Al) and it is great to back with the Susy team.

I’m currently one of the team covering the weekday breakfast show.

I grew up and have lived in the Susy area; Redhill, Reigate, South Park and Crawley so it is good to see many of my old haunts are still there.

As some of you may know I have presented programmes on previous Susy broadcasts as well as previous broadcasting experience in Uckfield, Worthing, Reigate and was for over 7 years a presenter and Chairman of a Hospital Radio station, during which time I have helped some people to get into the radio industry.

Musically I have a wide spectrum of interests which include; Pop, Classical, Orchestral, Big Band, Country, Rock and Easy Listening, to name but a few. I am a great one for lyrics so many ballads would find their way into my top ten, but that keeps changing. There are some great singer/songwriters out there; too many to choose so just keep listening to many of the great songs you will find on Susy.

I was asked for my likes and dislikes, so I will try to answer some of that, I don’t like curry or should I say curry doesn’t like me, I love chilli, sausages, potatoes in all styles and, yes even salads. I am more of a country person than a city person and really enjoy great scenery and some of the beautiful coastal areas we have in the UK.

I hope you’ll be able to join me on air, so until the next time, take care
