The Whole Nine Yards

Roy Stannard Roy Stannard
You can only keep a man and his record collection quiet for a while. Roy has spent over forty years collecting music from around the world and it all resides in a dedicated music library at his house. Restlessly scouring the new music lists for gems that will bring that unmistakable tingle to the back of the neck, Roy is constantly alert for new talent and is currently working with two local musicians, prior to securing record deals.

His history includes Radio Falmer at Sussex University, then a short spell of unregistered radio in Brighton in the early eighties before setting up Worthing Hospital Radio (nowadays Seaside) which grew to a network of eight sites. He then worked to run a series of RSLs in Brighton to support the Festival as Brighton Festival FM and the same in Adur before the team bid for the Brighton FM licence in 1996. Although unsuccessful on that occasion, Roy and his team went on to secure the licence for Worthing as Splash FM, which continues to this day under the umbrella of Media Sound that also runs Sovereign, Arrow and Bright FM.

He is looking forward to sharing his love of all kinds of music, near and far, old and brand new with the discriminating Seahaven audience!

His show - 'The Whole Nine Yards' will focus on some lesser known gems from the basement of his music library as well as some brand new releases and one or two unsigned artists destined to become stars of the future. It will also find room for conversation about the day's issues and guests who are not quick enough to find an excuse not to drop in!

The show runs from 7 until 9pm on Thursday evenings and your suggestions for rare classics to play and any anecdotes you may have about them would be warmly welcomed.
