    About Ben

    Ben is an Executive Producer overseeing two stations that collectively reach over 2 million listeners, Absolute 80s and Mellow Magic and contributing to the wider Absolute Radio and Magic Networks that reach over 8 million.

    From his roots being ‘caller number 9’ on his local radio station to a Saturday night student radio show at 3 in the morning, his love of radio and music is a lifelong endeavour and his 15 years of professional radio experience includes time spent working for the three biggest radio groups in the UK - The BBC (Radio 1), Global (Capital) and Bauer (Absolute Radio/Magic).

    In addition, he’s worked as a live event producer (Cake), radio plugger (Island Records), music journalist (NME, Boston Herald), and music curator and consultant, not to mention his time steaming Versace shirts, scanning Yanni CDs, alphabetizing children’s books, rotating hotdogs, polishing marble floors, fixing barbwire fences, appeasing bridesmaids’ with ABBA...and he had a paper round. Fun fact: the entire UK radio industry plays a version of Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Starships’ that came from his mother.
