Dean has been a Radio Presenter for almost 20 years; beginning his career working for Bruno Brookes and Keith Chegwin. After that he joined Capital Radio Café for a brief while then moved onto his most recent position at Capital Gold where he has been for 14 years and receives 6000 song requests every show!

Dean’s latest achievement was planning and hosting a Gold Radio event at Wembley Arena with 8000 of their listeners. This event was the first to bring both Bill Medley and Gary Puckett to perform in the UK. Due to the success of the first Unchained and Live production, arrangements have already begun for a second which will tour parts of the UK and present artist such as; Chubby Checker, Micky Dolez (Monkees), Billy J Kramer, Love Affair, New Amen Corner plus Gary Puckett.
