Phil SalterI started at Northern Air (then Radio HBS) back in 1978. In those days the presenters were in the studio but the record decks were in the outer room and I began my radio career by 'spinning the discs' for the Friday night new release show! I graduated to my own show called 'Talking Point' where Dave Brammer & I interviewed some weird and wonderful people. How many places do you get the opportunity to interview Samantha Fox one day and then Sooty the day after?!!

We also regularly produced outside broadcasts, the most memorable of which were interviewing the Manchester United team at their receptions at Manchester Town Hall. I still treasure the memory of meeting and interviewing Sir Matt Busby.

Being involved with Hospital Radio has been an interesting, at times exciting, but always fulfilling experience and I continue to broadcast on Monday to Friday afternoons with the A-Z of Pop.
