Alan King joined Meridian radio at about the time Noah launched the Ark!
Currently, Alan is meridian Radio Programme Manager, a role he undertook on his return after a spell working for commercial
stations in Kent.
Like the proverbial bad penny, Alan returned to Meridian late in 2004. He was instrumental in the development of the
computer system which now provides the backbone of our service.
It really all started back in 1977 when he joined the station. It was then that he shared Friday evenings with Mike Bartlett
from which a lifetime friendship and respect developed. In his time with Meridian, Alan has acted as fundraiser, organising
a sponsored bike ride from Nottingham to London, assisting with an auction on BBC local radio and a marathon broadcast. HIs
passion for music extends from big band to rock and roll and on to easy listening, the sixties, seventies - in fact almost
anything with a beat or a rhythm!
Alan has also turned out for a showbiz 11 football team - he was a junior with Millwall and played for Canterbury City
and Torquay United. He also had trials with a few other clubs, Charlton included - but never for his beloved Spurs.
Tune into Meridian Radio on Friday evening to here Alan from 6PM for music "just the way you like it."
