My first appearance on your television was way back in 1984. I was the host of a daily ‘Live’ show for Sky TV. Back then it was called Skytraxs and it was a video music based
station. Some say it was the fore-runner of MTV, Music Television, in Europe.
I soon found myself hosting shows on Music Box. Broadcasting to Europe via satellite on what was one of the most popular music shows of it’s time ‘Nino Firetto Totally Live’.
The show was also shown on Granada TV albeit late at night.
Then I auditioned for ITV. It was a children’s television show and I managed to beat off the competition. The flagship program was called ‘Splash’ and was to be ITV’s answer to BBC’s Blue Peter.
Splash was a weekly ‘live’ magazine program who’s target audience were children 6 – 16 years of age. It ran for just over 3 years. At the same time I was co hosting ITV’s Saturday morning children’s television show ‘Get Fresh’. Here are a few more. ( I was a busy bunny).
