Howard Griffiths / Presenter
Howard Griffiths shows
Howard (also known as Griff) had been with GTFM for almost 20 years and was considered to be part of the furniture.
He loved getting out and about within our community meeting new people and couldn’t walk down the high street without being stopped for a chat!
Howard went full steam ahead with his ambition to become a DJ when he retired from his job on the railways. His natural talent for talking was spotted after he did an interview about 1950 and 60s music on the University of Glamorgan’s Fusion Radio and was asked to present a show. When the University teamed up with GTFM’s founders to start the full-time station Howard had a regular cookery spot on his Afternoon show.
He presented Sunday Breakfast (8-10 am), and Retro Shows on Sunday (10 am-1pm) for many years as well as some Thursdays (7-9 pm), plus many other appearances across the schedule.
Originally from Worcester, Howard spent many years in Liverpool where he drove trains and spent time talking to local people and sharing memories of the Merseybeat era.
