Jim Richman

Hi, I’m Jim Richman and I used to work on Radio Caroline to mention but one of my former homes.

I work freelance and have done work for many ILR radio stations.

I’ve also managed to continue my devotion to hospital radio somehow.


Radio Caroline had a big influence on my life working as an apprentice electrician I happened to read an advertisement for an apprentice transmission engineer on board the Fredericia Radio Caroline’s ship off the Isle of Man.

I applied and within a week was aboard.



I took over as resident DJ at the Marquis club in Wardour street, London which gained me a three year contract. This allowed me to gain contact to big names in the pop music business.

I also worked overnight between 2am and 6am from October 1984 and February 1985 on Radio Jackie.

Join me on Monday nights from 9pm with Susy Solid Gold Featuring music from the late 50’s 60’s and Early 70’s and other shows including breakfasts, mid mornings and Drives on Susy Radio 103.4.
