Mike Atkinson found using his full name a bit of a mouthful so uses his first names when presenting as Mike James. He started his career in the Royal Air Force, as an Electrician and in his spare time presented on the Aden Forces Broadcasting Service in the Middle East, as well as UK-based Radio Watton and Finningley Broadcasting Service. Mike also enjoyed a very brief stint on BBC Radio One before following a career as a human resources consultant.
He was a founder member of Care Radio and has over 21 years experience on hospital radio. Mike has also been responsible for writing and producing radio plays in addition to writing his own column for a local newspaper in the Middle East.
He enjoys listening to Remy in the morning and is also a lyricist and believes songs should be listened to for their lyrics as well as the melody. He finds it impossible to name his favourite song but be assured it will be sung by Frank Sinatra.
