Join Martin Ingram, weekdays between 10 and 2 on the Original 106 – he’s a 100 years old don’t you know?
He has the perfect mix of music and chat to make the work day fly by!
What is the best gig you have ever been to?
Let me answer this way….Biggest – probably Paul McCartney at Hampden; Seen Squeeze a couple of times – GREAT band, outrageously talented; Loudest – Oasis at AECC and Aztec Camera at Eden Court Inverness, Oddest – Sigue Sigue Sputnik at Aberdeen’s Ritzy in 1986. Seen Graham Gouldman’s 10CC a few times too. Excellent!
Who’s the most famous person you have met?
Sting. I once interviewed Mickey Rooney….on the phone; and it was excellent to interview Brian May of Queen!
What is the strangest thing that has happened on your show?
Certainly, strangest thing for me in the last few years was day one at Original 106. Not many DJs in their career can say that they “launched” a brand new radio station, I was the first presenter and first official voice on Original. And even after nearly 20 years broadcasting experience – I was still cacking it!
If you could have one superpower what would it be?
Turning alcohol in to water. Oh wait…
What was your favourite childhood sweet?
Wine gums. Least favourite was the Texan Bar. Many a kids’ filling would have been hauled out with them things!
Do you have a secret talent?
I am a fully trained concert pianist. In my head.
What was your most embarrassing moment?
Don’t make me think of these things – they haunt me!
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
To relax and not take things too seriously.
What’s your favourite possession?
Material possessions mean NOTHING to me – (that’s a lie…). Probably my phone. It’s one of those with a rotary dial and a handset.
Who is your most embarrassing celebrity crush that you’ve ever had?
Why do you want to expose all my embarrassing bits? Wait that didn’t sound right.. Ehm, probably her off of… you know… her off the telly…
What has been your most favourite moment at Original 106 so far?
10am every weekday morning – shut myself in the studio and bang out the tunes for the north east!
Tell us something about another Original 106 presenter?
Claire Stevenson can laugh like Elpheba, the wicked witch of the west.
