Tim Haycock

Hi, I'm on Signal 107 every weekday afternoon from 2pm, with High School Hits at 3pm, and then it's the Home Run after 5pm with travel updates every 20 minutes. I`m also here Saturdays from 10am-2pm with the All Request Lunch from 1pm...

I worked as a Stock Controller before deciding to give up work and give radio a go. 

I went to college and did a couple of courses in Computer Programming. My dreams were still with radio so I didn`t take that any further. I do wish I'd kept up to date with things though as I could have made a fortune in 1999 when everyone was worried the world was going to come to a standstill when we hit the year 2000.

My main passion outside radio is animals and my Golden Retriever Toby is very special..

What song would you have played at your funeral? To be honest I'm not to bothered, I won't hear it.

What was the best Christmas present you ever had? A brand new bike. It was a Grifter in red. I got a tiny box and I was rather upset as it was so small. The box had a note in it which said my present was downstaris. Brilliant day.

Where is your favourite place in the world? Anywhere if I'm with people I care about

If you could have anything in the world, what would it be? Happiness

Most embarrassing moment in radio? I do remember in the early days, I was reading something out which was very serious and I heard someone sneeze and it made me laugh. Not good.
