Hi, I'm Pat Megginson a.k.a. Jazzy Pat a.k.a. the Jazzy One a.k.a. Who?! :P
Like many other presenters, I have always been fixated by various genres of music and was an avid listener of the charts as a kid. I am a sixties child so grew up listening to the music of the Beatles and Motown before becoming a convert to dance music shows on Radio Luxembourg in the seventies.
Had I had any musical ability I would have liked to follow school friends Lawrie & Mark Haley into the industry, where they played with the likes of Billy Fury, The Monkees, The Kinks and the Rubettes. But I was destined be "in music" in a different way and started presenting shows on college radio in North Wales in the late seventies and early eighties.
After a break of some 30 years, punctuated by brief mobile DJing slots, I returned to broadcasting earlier this decade with a local community station in my native Lincolnshire. I moved on to JFSR (Jazz Funk Soul Radio) a few years later, and have now signed with two stations in 2019, including Oldies Online. Although being a lover of all MOBO styles I specialize in the ever-changing world of Jazz.
I look forward to sharing my love of music from the 50s right through to the late 80s with you every Saturday night, right here on Oldies Online!
