Gary Crowley’s love of music was fired in the late 70’s by a passion for the Beatles and all things punk rock.
Whilst at school he started a punk fanzine, inspiringly titled “The Modern World”, and got to interview heroes like the Sex Pistols, the Clash and the Jam. Upon leaving school he became an office boy for Decca records (probably the least Punk record label imaginable in the Western world at the time!) before taking over the telephone receptionist job from a departing Danny Baker at the NME.
From there he joined the UK’s most happening independent plugging company, and through them began a stint on London’s Capital Radio (radio¹s youngest DJ at the time, clocking in at a tender 19!), from then on the world was his oyster (or so he was told) with many TV stints including Thames TV’s White Light, Channel 4’s Earsay and Carlton’s The Beat as well as doing time with radio stations like GLR, XFM and now the BBC station for the capital; BBC London 94.9FM where he can be heard on Saturday evenings from 6pm – 8pm. He has also recently done some deps on BBC 6 Music.
A highly-respected music fanatic, Gary has access to the biggest names in music, and over the years has interviewed Oasis, Paul Weller, Paul McCartney, Robert Plant, Supergrass, Radiohead, the Manic Street Preachers, The Sex Pistols, The Clash…the list is endless!
A long-time, highly-respected champion of new music, the blood nutted bopper has given many new bands and artist their first taste of radio exposure and currently boasts a Woody Allen video collection second to none.
