Mid Mornings

Mid Mornings is like sitting in a coffee shop with a group of friends: people arrive and leave, anybody could drop by and join in (local people doing amazing things, big stars on their way to the theatre, experts with news about big discoveries) and the conversation can go in all directions. Join us between 10 and 1 and find out if it’s Jonathan, Bob, Colin or Keith

Jonathan Pagden

Jonathan Pagden first appeared on the radio aged 8, reviewing a book about dinosaurs. He still has the book somewhere. Since then he’s produced, presented and read news on several local stations, had one solitary appearance on Radio 2, played bass at the Albert Hall and did studio sound for the very first series of Masterchef.
At Wycombe Sound he’s returning to his roots in friendly, local radio on our award-winning Mid Morning programme, and behind the scenes he works in mentoring new presenters, producing live music, engineering, producing and planning: but his true calling is collecting up the coffee mugs and washing up.
Elsewhere, if you're lucky enough to be at a big awards do, you could well hear him as the 'Voice of God'.

Bob Johnson

From a young age Bob wanted to be on the radio and started presenting his own show using a tape recorder and microphone in his bedroom. He progressed to volunteering at hospital radio, then working on various local stations before his skills took him first to Talk Radio and then LBC where he stayed for 14 years. He produced the Clive Bull late night phone in and even presented the show when Clive was on holiday. After holding the position of Programme Manager for two years Bob left to pursue opportunities outside radio. However the lure of the microphone proved too great when Wycombe Sound took to the air and Bob started volunteering at his local station in 2015. He presented the Breakfast Show for the first year that we had a permanent licence and now is one of the hosts of the Mid Morning Show. Bob loves football and has season tickets for both Wycombe Wanderers and Watford who he supports as he was born in the hospital next to the ground. He is also a big fan of American sports, in particular American football and baseball. He has travelled extensively in the US and has visited all 48 mainland states.

Colin Besley

Having started off at Wycombe Hospital Radio and then doing student radio, Colin spent ten years as a presenter and sports editor at the former commercial station based in Wycombe (originally know as elevenSEVENTYam before becoming Swan FM and then re-branding to Mix 107).

He also did ground announcing at Wycombe Wanderers for a couple of seasons and later helping out on an ad-hoc basis. He's since gone on to work in sports news at a national level, including reading the classified football results every Saturday for the commercial radio network.

Keith Higgins

Keith joined the Mid Morning team in March 2019. He runs our highly successful Employment FM course when the students take over the whole show on their last day.

Keith started at Hospital Radio in 2005. He headed the very successful sports team and has developed an excellent working relationship with Wycombe Wanderers. Catch his interviews with Gareth Ainsworth & one of the players that go on our website most Fridays in the football season – the Wycombe Wanderers Press Sessions.

The team won the CMA Sports Category Bronze Award in 2017 & the Gold Award in 2018. Keith loves hosting the Mid Morning Show and especially enjoys doing live outside broadcasts.
