Gary King

I bet you've heard Gary King's voice somewhere before!

He began his career as a mobile DJ after giving up plans to be an actor. He quickly progressed to the London training ground of Radio TopShop, then joined Radio Luxembourg before becoming the inaugural presenter on the newly-launched Atlantic 252 in 1989 - in a parody of the four-minute warning, his opening words were "mine is the first voice you will ever hear - on Atlantic 252". Within less than a year, he had been poached by BBC Radio 1.

He has worked at and won various awards with radio stations around the U.K and was also the voice-over on the popular UK children's TV show 'Funhouse' in the 80s and 90s. More recently he appeared as a talk-show host in the network television drama 'Animals' and is also the 'voice of the aisles' on Dale Winton's Supermarket Sweep.

Gary says that Totally 80s is the show that he's always wanted to present. "I'm a huge fan of 80s music and in my collection I've got EVERY Top 40 hit from the decade. Although maybe that's not something I should shout about? But it's better than admitting to liking 80s fashion, right?"

Join Gary King, Saturday evening from 5 for Totally 90's and Sunday night from 7 for Totally 80's
