Meet the team

Hi I’m Neil owner of L35 Online Radio  i have always had an interest in music my earliest memory of playing a 45 on a portable record player being Don McLean American Pie and Jim Reeves Bimbo ……yep a long time ago.

So after many years of mobile disco a love of radio, and a short stint in hospital radio in the late 80s ,i thought why not start a local online radio station how hard can it be ……  after many months of researching crossing many hurdles researching ,servers ,bitrates ,finding out about licencing the do’s and don’ts L35 online radio was born on the 2nd March 2019 it ran great for 12 months……..then Covid 19 struck and it was practically mothballed for just on 2 yrs ,but thankfully we are fully up and running along with a great team of dedicated presenters 

When not at L35 or in my day job you will find me at my plot at my local allotment normally up to my ankles in soil  where many ideas flow for programs or music I’ve not heard for ages.

My interest with music started when I was four years old, my dad once said I could identify a record by the colour of the label and every time, I would pick Jim Reeves and distant drums.
My fondest memories are of BBC Radio 2 and listening to Terry Wogan (1973) on the breakfast show, then in 1974 a new commercial station was launched for Liverpool, it was called 194 Radio City and I was instantly hooked.
I was a regular listener to Norman Thomas because he lived in St Helens, and I thought to myself oh I can do that; I can sit in a radio studio and play records all day long.
In the early 1980s I joined Radio Whiston (hospital radio) where I learned my radio skills presenting regular programmes.
In September 1987 Heaton Knott & Company approached me, they offered me a contract at Radio Topshop entertaining shoppers, playing music & promoting fashion wear, broadcasting across stores in Leeds, Liverpool, Gateshead, Manchester and Newcastle.
In the 1990s I was a regular on Radio Briars Hey, from Rainhill, Merseyside, these were a series of 28-day RSL’s (restricted service licences) which led to the birth of KCR 106.7 (Knowsley Community Radio)
My time with KCR lasted for almost four years, I was on air Sunday to Thursday 10:00 PM – 02:00 AM, I also presented the Sunday morning breakfast show 6:00 to 10:00 AM.
In the mid-1990s I took a media placement as a student at St Helens College, after 6 months I became a full-time member of staff within the department, where I was instrumental in launching Solar 1287 AM (student radio) broadcasting across the campus.
After 22 years at St Helens College, I took my redundancy, I now work at Whiston Hospital where it all began for me.
I have gained so much experience within the radio industry and when I am not in work, I mix down radio idents, commercials, and promotions for other radio stations.
Over the years I have operated a mobile disco business, had residency work at social clubs, labour clubs and hotels.
The music of the 1970s influenced me as I was growing up, that is why I present the Sensational 70s every Sunday between 11:00 and 1:00 PM.
L35 Online Radio is local to me, it’s a great station, I know the area which it serves, and I can relate to our listeners and there’s a huge genre of music to be heard.
From the 4th of February my new show will take to the air “The Big Request Show”
Finally, I will let you into a little secret, I compile The Non-Stop Country Show Sunday’s 3:00 – 4:00PM.

L35 is all about music, and music has always been in my life. From the age of 3 or 4 hearing C&W songs on mum & dads radiogram or switching between two of my radio heroes every morning. Noel Edmonds and the peerless Sir Terry Wogan, joined later by Radio City’s Mark Jones.

I met my much better half through music radio and the son and heir and favourite daughter in law love their music also. He has the produced the 50s shows you can listen too on L35.

L35 has given me the opportunity to share music from my favourite decade with you. Not just the usual often heard hits but the less well known gems from the most innovative and groundbreaking decade of music ever, and not all from the charts but the tv and cinema too.

I hope you enjoy the Flashback as much as I enjoy bringing it to you, but as I said it’s not about me it’s about you and the music.


Gary Hopkins

My name is Gary. I’ve been presenting various radio shows since 2010 but since mid 2018 I have been presenting Blast from the 80s and it’s sister shows Blast From The 90s. For me these decades are brilliant with different types of genres that just don’t age and artists that are still loved and adored many years after releasing original material on these decades.

Each show gives a blend of tracks not heard in a long time, but listener interaction, quizzes and features from these great decades.
