Ashley Bird

Ash presents 6 O’Clock Live shows, specials and the monthly Cargo Bay show, which focusses 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.

Ash cannot resist a pun. Or a bun.
