Name: Nigel Bould.
Birthplace: Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent.
Describe yourself in 3 words: Easy Going, Honest, Reliable.
Give us an interesting fact about yourself: My other job in quality allows me to travel to world, I have tap danced with Roy Castle, I was a soprano choir boy in my younger years, I had a DJ roadshow for 20 years, appeared on a advert on TV for ITV, graduated at Staffs University in management and Leadership in 2016, I have been told I have the looks of Shrek and the personality of Santa Claus, as for radio voice probably a cross between Simon Bates and Barry White with an even more laid back approach.
What is your favourite song of all time and why? This is very difficult as most people will say, I like various genres of music from Swing to Rock, favourite years are the 80,s however if I had to pick a song it would be anything by ELO/Jeff Lynne.
Describe your ideal night out/in: Night in, takeaway curry, headphones on, planning my breakfast shows. Night out, in the local pubs, sampling a few beers finishing in a nice restaurant.
What do you love about Newcastle-under-Lyme? I’m a Newcastle lad at heart, spent all of my early years in most of the pubs and nightclubs. I did a few turns as a DJ in Tiffs, Sammy Belles and Top of the World in Stafford. Newcastle has plenty of very happy memories for me.
What is your favourite place in Newcastle-under-Lyme? I’m catching on with these new bottle bars which I find very interesting for choice etc., however all pubs and restaurants in Castle are great to visit. Not much of a shopping Guy.
What is your favourite part of being involved with The Hitmix? Rob and The Hitmix gave me a chance to take up both Saturday and Sunday morning breakfast slots, which I jumped at. This radio station is the greatest for choice of music, fantastic presenters and above all the listeners, I have made many great friends since joining the Hitmix, and I anticipate many more too. It’s being part of an huge family, we truly care about the Hitmix and our listeners, we are going from strength to strength. Thanks for your support and watch this space
