Keith Mardell

The 60's Pirate Stations sparked Keith's lifelong interest in music and radio. He learnt to play the guitar and played in various bands for over 20 years, then some DJ work came along, and continues to this day on Big L.

Keiths work as a Media Manager for a national organisation also resulted in several radio and TV appearances, and included travel across the UK and parts of Europe.
Over the years, he has been fortunate to personally meet Sir Cliff Richard, Ian Gillan, Joanna Lumley, Sir Bobby Robson and Chirpy.

Keith is married with two daughters, his favourite TV show of all time is The Avengers, he follows the Colchester United football team, likes a wide range of music, and his favourite bands include The Beatles, The Beach Boys, America and Steely Dan. His ambition is to buy some camouflage trousers, but he can't find any!

Hear Keith on Big L International Sunday at 6pm.
