Barry Paul (Garnham)

Presenter / DJ

One evening many years ago there was a knock on the door, can you come and play some music for us as we have been let down! That is where it all began, then came the mixer the lights the Vinyl, oh the heavy Vinyl! In a blink, there were nightclubs, mobile Discos aplenty, manifesting into a liking for Soul, Jazz/Funk, and Disco Classics plus many other genres. Fast forward through much fun and hard work, I finally got the Radio bug. Cracker Radio and Local Community Radio then our own 24 hr Online Internet station. What a way to combine all those acquired skills and experiences together, plus along with other like-minded types is where we are today. Playing Classic hits and more, Supporting local events, working alongside and with The police, Local council, Heritage venues, Armed Forces, Fire Fighters etc.. I am proud to be of Service via our mutual endeavors.

Live Event Support

So how the heck did I become a member of the Fresh Gold Team? Well 5 years ago I meet the guys from Fresh Gold when they came in to a previous store I worked at the purchase some new speakers. During my time on the Fresh Gold team I have been involved with presenting live shows, co-hosting but I now leave that to the professionals and stick to providing help and support during live events. Since joining the team I have developed my own business Breeze Events, to which we now supply sound, lighting, power distribution and much more to a wide range of events all over the UK. It’s great to be able to offer the support to each other when we need it and help both Breeze Events and Fresh Gold Radio develop more over the years.

Back in 2006, I was working in the Balcony Night Club on the Isle of Wight with Alex Dyke who was the mid-morning presenter on Isle of Wight Radio & to cut a long story short it was him who I owe a big thank you to. I worked at Isle of Wight Radio for 3 years. I have also worked at Win FM in Winchester, Wight Island Radio & Vectis Radio before joining Fresh Gold 2 years ago. Next year I have been with my lovely wife Debbie for 25 years we married in 2009 (and they said it wouldn’t work) as Debs is 18 years younger than me. We have a beautiful daughter Megan who is nearly 7 & I have my son Neil who is 37 & we have just got our 3rd dog a German Shepherd called Bobby. I have lived in Sandown on the Isle of Wight for 23 years & I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. I present the Soul Selection once a fortnight & when Barry Paul needs a day off I cover the Breakfast show.

Steve Baldwin

Steve Baldwin

Presenter / DJ

Err hello is this thing on? Hi, I'm Steve Baldwin born and bred in Felixstowe, Suffolk and married to Julie. I love music and I grew up listening to my parents' choices, Jim Reeves, Val Doonican etc. But soon got into Rock music and was a big Slade fan in the early 70's, then Status Quo in the mid 70's, and I'm still a massive Quo fan now! So how did I join Fresh Gold?. Many years ago I helped Jon Kennedy - J.K. with his mobile disco. In 2017 I saw him doing his "thing" at an outdoor event with Fresh Gold, had a chat, met with the team and here I am! I am now part of the team helping out on the outdoor events Plus, I sometimes co-host the "Here Comes the Weekend" show on Friday evenings with Barry. In due course, I will be presenting my own show playing album tracks, all the music from my own collection. Leaning towards Rock and Heavy Metal, but with the odd surprise here and there! Other hobbies/interests include (other than Status Quo) going to gigs, making plastic model kits (aircraft & cars) and being a member of the International Plastic Modellers Society (IPMS) Ipswich. I also like motorsport, Formula One, NASCAR, British Touring Cars etc. But grew up on UK Small Oval Racing track meeting in all weathers subsequently starting myself in the Stock Rod formula in 1985. A few years later came back to racing in the Rookie Rod formula for another 3 years. I also like aviation, reading (yes I can!) favourite book is "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". I don't know how I find the time for this music lark but I do! Enjoy listening to Fresh Gold & if you see us at an outdoor event come and say hello!

Nigel Lungley

Presenter / DJ

Nigel is an Ipswich man, though currently living on the dark side in Norfolk – well, it is only just over the border..... He has a big interest in all types of music though admits after a fashion that Jazz of any sort isn’t anywhere on the list or likely to be. Nigel has a keen sense of humour and laughs at things which he probably shouldn’t and has a laugh that has got him into trouble many times over the years. He looks after Nigel at Night on Friday nights and also the country show’s on Sundays and Tuesdays.
Stacey Scott

Stacey Scott

Presenter / DJ

Stacey was born in Suffolk and has lived there all her life. She has always been involved in music even from an early age, when her Dad was a DJ. She was keen to learn the songs she heard. So her parents bought her a keyboard. Her early influences were David Bowie, Jean- Michel Jarre, Enya and A-ha. Stacey is a singer and musician and has written and produced her own music for several years. She became interested in radio presenting in 2009 when she landed a volunteer slot on local radio once a week. She is an 80’s girl at heart but does have an eclectic taste in music.

Hello, my Name is Brandy, AKA The Fresh Gold Guard Dog. As a valued member of the team, I have an important role. I attend events, keep warm in the studio, Bark and growl when it may be inappropriate, what do I know I am a dog! I'm always ready to assist the eating of any odd scrap that may pass my way. I am pleased to have many friends but, who the heck is this Kevin bloke? And why do I have to wear this stupid Hi Viz thing?
