Martin Bee

Martin Bee

Hello everyone, I'm Martin Baker, a bit of a mouthful to say so I prefer to be named Martin Bee. I was born many years ago in Stockton-on-Tees and have spent most of my life living in this wonderful town. I was brought up in Thornaby and went to a school in Middlesbrough but remained a dedicated supporter of my birth town.

I became aware of the music scene at the time of the first recordings by Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, Paul Anka and of course, the King by listening to Radio Luxemberg. I loved buying records (78's and then 45's) and had to have one every week. This may explain why I play a lot of records from the late 1950's although I do like most music up until the 1980's.

I became a volunteer radio presenter at Radio North Tees (Hospital Radio) in January 2007 and have produced two programmes each week since then. One on a Sunday morning and one on a Monday evening. I only play the music that I personally like and hope the listener shares my, sometimes bizarre, taste.

As Radio Stitch moves forward into the world of the internet I shall continue to produce more programmes that contain old and very old music, after all I am one of the original "wrinkly rockers".
