Joff Hopkins

Joff HopkinsJoff's here Sunday to Thursday nights from 7pm.

Whether you're chilling out after work, or heading off for the nightshift - I'll be here on your radio playing great songs into the small hours.

You'll hear me chatting to the people making the music too - from Gary Barlow and Cheryl Cole to Chrissie Hynde and George Ezra.

And every Thursday night after 9pm, film journo Mark Searby is on with his pick of the weekend's movies on TV.

So... in case you're interested... I was born at a very young age to my parents, who raised me on a diet of Queen, Blondie, and the instrumental group Sky. I remember writing to Father Christmas and asking for some music "that had a good beat". I got an awful electro-synth type album, which at the time I thought was brilliant... listening back, a lot of it really isn't.

My taste in music these days remains pretty eclectic - my collection ranges from Daft Punk and Ellie Goulding to The Corrs and Justin off CBeebies on the telly.

Away from the studio, my young family keep me busy. Owen (3 going on 13) loves going to the zoo, while Emily (1 year-and-a-bit) likes chewing on Owen's LEGO. When I'm not trying to keep them from throwing toys at each other, you'll find me hunting for somewhere new to have a coffee.
