Mark Blackman

The youngest of four, Mark (aka Blackers) is a Merseyside lad born and bred, who went to College and Uni. He’s been in Cheshire for over 15 years, so feels well and truly that the community is now in his blood! In that time he’s worked at the Beeb and Commercial Radio in various guises, from reading travel news to presenting – even keeping one station on the air using his hand whilst broadcasting … don’t ask!)

Mark is the Voluntary Deputy Station Manager, “taking care of business” when necessary, the technical aspects, helping out on various roadshows and events and filling in for other presenters when they go AWOL. He’s a big fan of 80s music and, away from the station, he’s a resident DJ at The Berkeley, in Wigan. Blackers loves to socialise, meet new people and catch up with family and friends.

Mark is also our Swing Presenter and looks after things when other presenters are off or ill! Listen out for him soon on 102.8FM and E-mail office@canalsideradio.net with your requests and dedications!
