Hi , I’m Ron Murrant and am delighted to have become part of the Vectis Radio Team and presenting a show. I have always had a keen interest in radio right back to 60’s tuning into the likes of Radio Caroline and Radio London. In those early days a friend and I would send each other tapes to play on our reel to reel tape decks and would chat about what we have been up to or going to do, but importantly we included music from our record collection between the chats. (early presenting). Nine years ago along with my lovely wife Trish we moved to the island as we have family here including grandchildren, a sure recipe for keeping young.
I have been a volunteer with the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance for 12 years and give presentations explaining the work and operation of the charity to organisations on the Island. In September 2021 I joined the Medina Community Choir and that is where I met Dan Heaney. It was Dan who introduced me to the radio station and helped me learn the workings on the desk and presenting a show for which I am very grateful. So now it’s a real pleasure to be able to entertain you presenting on Vectis Radio. Happy Listening!.
