Andrew Marston: Presenter Profile
Andrew Marston
As well as appearing on the radio Andrew is an in-demand DJ

Andrew Marston presents BBC Introducing in Hereford & Worcester, showcasing the very best unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar music.

He is also actively involved in music and is a local pub/club DJ.

Andrew began his broadcasting career at Hereford Hospital Radio where he presented a weekly music programme.

Later he moved over to covering local news, picking up a bronze award for Non-Music Programme Of The Year 2000.

He says:

I've been involved in the music scene now for many years, having learnt to play the keyboard/piano from the age of six.

Through school and college I continued with music, joining several bands all over the county and even played the church organ on Sunday mornings - if you remember Adrenalin Rush from Whitecross School in Hereford - get in touch.

I then got into the recording side of the operation and this is the foundation to what I do now.

A good friend of mine dragged me into DJing having acquired a small musical knowledge and an understanding of how a mixing desk works, and we began spinning the tunes at kids' discos from about the age of 13 or 14.

This naturally led to me doing more and more work behind the decks and becoming full-time in radio, until we move forward into this millennium, where I'm, ummmm, DJing and working in radio.

So I think it's fair to say I have a broad love of music and I like to entertain.

I joined the BBC in 1999, letting guests into our Hereford studio out-of-hours, before becoming a Broadcast Assistant, looking after the offices, doing live radiocar reports into programmes, helping out in the music library and reporting tracks to the PRS, then producing pages for the BBC Hereford & Worcester website and making trails and jingles for the station.

Nowadays I present BBC Introducing in Hereford & Worcester, showcasing the very best unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar music from across our area.

I also cover other presenters when they're away on holiday, and I put together various recorded parts of the output, while also making regular contributions to the Introducing shows on BBC Radio 1, BBC 1Xtra, BBC 6 Music and BBC Asian Network.

Away from the mic, I like to write dance music, collaborating with a number of great people I've met along the way.
