The Breeze Classic Countdown

Get to know Mark Franklin a little better and catch him on The Breeze on Saturday's for The Classic Countdown.

What was the first single you ever bought? It was a toss up between Prince Charming by Adam & The Ants and The Land of Make Believe by Bucks Fizz. Which do you think I went for?!

What’s the best thing about presenting on the radio? Connecting with and getting a reaction from the listener to something you've said or played. It's the best job ever.

What are your 3 favourite things? Music, photography and travelling

What would be the title of your autobiography? Hot Off the Mark

Name your top 5 dinner guests. Quite an eclectic mix. Marilyn Monroe, Stephen Fry, Judge Judy, Columbo (I appreciate this is a fictional person but I'm removing all boundaries. If I can't have Columbo I'll go for Poirot instead!) and Kylie Minogue.

Favourite Film? The Breakfast Club - I first saw this 5 years after its release and at age 16, it completely spoke to me.

Tell us one thing that may surprise us about you. I won the Tarzan competition, aged 12, at Kiln Park in Tenby. I beat 27 other kids. Not even joking. I still have the trophy.

What will you be remembered for most? I'd have to say presenting Top of the Pops - certainly a life highlight for me

If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take 5 things with you what would they be? I'm quite a simple guy really and also very practical... Phone, solar power battery charger. headphones, factor 30 suncream, moisturiser.

Other than being a radio presenter, what other job would you like to have a go at? I always wanted to be a lawyer. And a fire engine. Not a fireman, the actual engine - I was 4.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go? LA.

What was your nickname at school? Frankles
