Ash is the other half of The Monday Jam team (with Lucie De Lacy) and also presents the monthly Cargo Bay show, focussed on alt-rock and other noisy music. He also puts together much of the station and show artwork for RFM.
As editor of rock magazine Kerrang! in the early 2000s, Ash co-ordinated and presented shows for the early incarnations of Kerrang! Radio. He also presented shows on Total Rock Radio and the Student Broadcast Network.
As well as music journalism, Ash has spent a number of years working as a photographer, mainly shooting portraits but also heading into photo pits at gigs and festivals such as Download, V Festival and Snowbombing.
Ash is the bass player in alt-rock band Damn Cargo.
Ash cannot resist a pun. Or a bun.
