Feel Good Friday with Colin Dobson

You’ve heard the saying ‘a perfect face for radio’?

Well, they were talking about me!
My career in radio started as so many other presenters did, in Hospital Radio.
I worked with two great teams at Ackton hospital and WBHS in Wakefield before graduating to Radio Aire in Leeds in 1987.
After several successful and enjoyable years, my other love of health and fitness tempted me away from the microphone, and I started my own gym in Barnsley which I still run today.
However, the radio bug never left me, and I’ve kept a presence within the industry throughout the last 25 years, working with some great people. Of course, I’d never drop names to impress others. The Prime Minister and Daniel Craig gave me that advice the day we had lunch with the Queen.
Back to reality… I joined Radio Barnsley in 2016 and am privileged to work alongside a fantastic team of presenters, bringing you great music, local stories, chat, live guests, and entertainment to the great people of Barnsley and online around the world.

Feel Good Friday with Colin Dobson

Countdown to the weekend.

Friday – 12.00pm till 3.00pm.

Start winding down in preparation for the weekend with three hours of feel-good music spanning six decades and more features than you can shake a whippet at.
Guess the year when I hop into the Flashback Time Machine (when I can get it started). Discover the Lost Album of the week. Check out what’s going on in the Weekend What’s On Guide. There’s also the classic WHOLE Twelve Inches, and who can forget the Barmy Barnsley Birthday Choir? Live guests pop in to talk about local stories of interest (as long as they bring tea and sausage rolls).
I’ve got the latest news on the hour, and Barnsley’s weather for the weekend.
You can also get involved in the show and chat live with me on our social media pages.
