Russ Wilcox

Russ takes you home every weekday from 3.00pm with The Breeze Drive and gets your weekend off the the perfect start at 7.00am on Saturday.

What was the first single you ever bought?

Probably something like “Mah Na Mah Na” by the Muppets in my very early years...but when I grew up Kate Bush “Wuthering Heights”. 

I remember seeing Kate perform it on Top Of The Pops and my jaw just dropped at how she looked and sounded..I’d never seen anything like her before....to this day I’m a huge fan of hers.

What’s the best thing about presenting on the Radio?

It’s not a job....it’s  still my hobby, and it pays the bills !

For someone who has no musical ability whatsoever it’s an absolute joy to be play songs by people with much more talent than me. If I can brighten someones’ day by doing that and waffling a bit I can go home a happy man each night.

What are your 3 favourite things?

My daughter, her smile and her giggle.

What would be the title of your autobiography?

“No I’m not him”. Anyone who meets me for the first time says within 5 minutes, “You look like Alistair McGowan”.  Which is a pain frankly, and why can’t it be HE looks like ME??

What's your favourite film?

Manhattan – I’m a huge Woody Allen geek! Oh, and as I’m a bloke in my 40s Star Wars, obviously!

What annoys you the most?

Either motorists who sit in the right hand lane at traffic lights and decide to turn their indicators on to turn right once the lights go green or Self service checkout tills....surely they should be expecting items in the bagging area by now ??

Tell us one thing that may surprise us about you.

I have an Oscar winning actresses mobile phone number!

What will you be remembered for most?

Probably being very tall...and looking like Alistair McGowan!
