Andy Rutherford

Hi! I’m Andy Rutherford and you can join me every Thursday from 8pm for my Back in the 70’s show on River Radio.

About me….
Where do I start? Let me see….. Well, I’ve been involved in radio since 1983. I started off on hospital radio, then onto commercial stations then community radio. I’m also Sound Engineer and enjoy nothing more than being knee deep in cables and sound equipment! I’m a big lover of vinyl and have a 70’s and 80’s singles collection that I’m really proud of!

My Favourite Movie

It’s a movie called Private Parts, the autobiographical story of Howard Stern, the radio rebel who is now also a TV personality, an author and a movie star.

Favourite Type of Music

Well, it has to be 70’s and 80’s!

Have I ever met anyone famous?

Apart from my shadow, yes I have met a few famous people from working in radio in the past.

How did I get involved in River Radio?

My friend & radio colleague Norie B told me about this great station and I jumped at the chance to get involved!
