Chris was born and brought up in Windermere attending Windermere Grammar School and The Lakes School. Music was prominent from an early age starting in St Mary’s Church Choir at the age of six.
Unfortunately, work took Chris away from the Lakes for some 33 years. He worked initially in Summer Season & Pantomime as a singer / tap dancer, but then moved to the other side of the curtain as Director of Entertainments for Broxbourne, Stafford, Bury & Rossendale Authorities.
Chris & Wife Sue retired to Bare (a little village on the outskirts of Morecambe) in 2012 where he continued to provide Quiz Nights and worked as a compere, then joining Lake District Radio initially in 2019. He now provides the Sunday lunchtime Supplement from 12 noon to 2pm.
