John Hogarth

About me:  I was born in Paignton some years ago and now reside in Torquay. I have been a familiar voice on local radio for over two decades and my cheeky, charming and relatable style is still as infectious as it has always been.  I have presented on many local radio stations including Palm FM, Plymouth Sound, Gemini FM, South Hams Radio, Radio Exe, Radio Plymouth and now Riviera FM and I’m also a best selling author, video graphic designer, DJ, quiz master and father of two boys. 

Passions:  My main passion (apart from radio) is reading and learning. Currently I’m studying to be a psychotherapist, and among other things, psychology, physics, biology, evolution, neurology and philosophy. 

Favourite music/artists:  There are far too many talented people to have just one favourite, but I do appreciate real talent when I hear it and I much prefer discovering new music than hearing songs I’ve been listening to for decades.

Hobbies/interests:  I love going out and socialising with my friends, spending time with my family and relaxing watching a film or reading.

Favourite things:   I have been a film enthusiast for years and I still keep up-to-date with the latest releases. I’m also a bit of a Marvel geek and probably know quite a lot more than I should about the MCU. I’m also a huge fan of stand-up comedy and love Russell Howard, Dave Chappelle and Ricky Gervais.   After Life 2 is a must see.
