His radio career began in 1981 at West Sound in Ayrshire. He was lucky enough to turn up in the right place at the right time and they took him on.
Since then, John has been on the radio in the West of Scotland pretty much every day! He was the first voice on Smooth Radio Glasgow back in March 2007. A year later he was joined on the show by Sharon Oakley who, like John, formerly worked for Radio Clyde.
When John's not at work he enjoys spending time with his three sons; the boys have been on-air with their dad and their mum, Sara, many times and in 2000 the family won gold at the New York Radio Awards for their Christmas special.
John is on-air with Sharon Oakley every weekday from 6am.
