Johnny-Lewis
Johnny Lewis
Co-founder, and Broadcast Engineer
Johnny Lewis started his career on Radio Caroline in the 1970s as both broadcaster and engineer until the Mi Amigo sank. He later worked for The Voice of Peace off the coast of Israel and numerous radio stations in Ireland. He was aboard Laser 558 before returning to Radio Caroline on the Ross Revenge. Johnny has also been heard on several local commercial radio stations around the UK, including Breeze AM in Essex and Invicta Radio, and KMFM in Kent. It is Johnny’s expertise in the technical side of things that ensures that Radio Jupiter is available on the internet’s 192 services. Johnny continues to enjoy presenting music shows and using his vast experience of music radio. Instantly recognisable on-air, he is very much the character in real life that he appears to be when he is on the radio.
Peter Philips
Peter Philips
Co-founder, Presenter and Programme Manager
Peter Philips has that distinct “public service announcement” voice, which is why his colleagues sometimes refer to him as “Mr. World Service”. He enjoys all sorts of music, constantly looking to discover new releases as well as nostalgically revisiting older material. Since starting his radio career in the 1970s, he has worked on a variety of commercial and BBC stations in the UK and abroad, gaining valuable experience that has translated into the musical sound that he has created for Radio Jupiter. He firmly believes that if you like what you hear, the listener should be able to hear it any time of the day, not just at certain times of the week. Favourite film: The Blues Brothers. Favourite cartoon character: Huckleberry Hound. Or possibly Droopy.

Carol Cooke
Co-founder and Mothership Manager
Carol Cooke found herself twiddling her thumbs after retirement. During the Covid lockdowns, she made a comment to her family, “I really need to find something else to occupy myself since I’m getting a bit bored.” That’s when she became one of the co-founders of Radio Jupiter. Carol organised the Radio Jupiter website, email and social media accounts. She called her little office the “Mothership” which was quickly adopted by the “crew” as the hub of Radio Jupiter activities. She continues tokeep the accounts and perform other admin duties. The presenters like to have a good stock of biscuits, teas and coffee, and when there is an issue that needs sorting, Carol is the first port of call. Hence the reason when you get an email from Mothership@RadioJupiter.studio, it will be signed by Carol, Mothership Manager, Biscuit Buyer and Jupiter Janitor, all in good fun.
Len-Fisher
Len Fisher
Presenter
Len Fisher is a Battersea boy, born and bred, which probably accounts for his love of Chelsea Football Club. After leaving school Len worked for Scotland Yard before launching a career with British Gas in Marketing, I.T. Training, and Customer Service. After retiring from B.G. he became the Town Clerk for Seaford Town Council for 10 years. Always on the lookout for a challenge, Len approached a local radio station to see if he could learn to be a Radio Presenter, it seems to have worked!!!! Apart from Chelsea, Len’s passions are golfing, fast cars, making those very fast cars, gardening, and his radio work.
Trevor-Adams
Trevor Adams
Presenter
Trevor Adams’ interest in music started at a very young age. Then, with the arrival of Radio Caroline, Trevor’s real interest in radio started. Unfortunately, by the time he might have considered working in radio, the Caroline ships were towed away! Not knowing what else to do, a career in the insurance industry followed, with Trevor qualifying as a Chartered Loss Adjuster. If a Radio Presenter lurks within, it will find its way out, and so it was with Trevor when he joined Hospital Radio Tunbridge Wells, now West Kent Radio, where he continues to present two shows a week. Trevor is delighted to join the team at Radio Jupiter and looks forward to entertaining the listeners with a wide variety of music.

Clive G
Presenter
Clive G has been involved in radio since 1980, beginning with Mayday Hospital Radio, followed by Epsom Hospital Radio, C.F.M., Solonet, Juice FM, and Flame AM, mixed with several opportunities to take part in R.S.L.s (Restricted Service Licence for 28 days). He really enjoyed working at Hayes FM in Middlesex presenting the midmorning show which was called the Boogie Wonderland. The music was based on American Disco of the eighties funk (Studio 54). Then, while he was at Ridge Radio UK, he gained experience broadcasting on the internet for 5 years. Currently, Clive is involved with 107 Meridian FM where is still presents several shows a week. We are delighted to have Clive G on the Radio Jupiter team. He will be playing all your favourite hits at the weekend. Join him for “the ride of your life, from Jupiter to the moon to planet Earth”. Tune in to enjoy quality and memorable music from the past to the present.
Charlie-Taylor
Charlie Taylor
Presenter
Charlie Taylor came to the UK from Texas. Although she has lived in the UK for over half of her life, listeners will still be able to hear a soft Texas twang. Charlie is not new to radio, although most will have never heard of her. She became interested in British radio in the 1980s and was with the Ross Revenge during its transition from a former fishing trawler into the most famous radio ship. She was mainly there in the background, but she does have the legitimate right to claim that she played the very first record on Radio Caroline’s return during the midnight test transmissions – before the studio microphone was installed! That’s the reason no one has heard her voice before Radio Jupiter. Charlie’s role on Radio Jupiter, is again, mainly in the background. Look out for her occasional Radio Jupiter programs to hear the music that she calls “the great, the good, and the new”!
ken-lowe
Chris Williams
Presenter
Chris Williams hails from Wales, though he currently lives in a rather wild part of France. Perhaps it’s the rugged coastline and the stormy seas which have helped to flavour his musical tastes! He loves all kinds of tunes from the 60s to today, including punk, indie, and even German schlager! Chris has been ‘radioactive’ (so to speak) since his pirate days in the ’80s. Since then, when work has allowed, he has broadcast on numerous RSLs, independent stations, and recently, on a reincarnation of Laser Hot Hits and Big L Radio. Chris is delighted to have joined Radio Jupiter. He can’t wait to play you some really first-class tunes!

Garry Davies
Garry Davies
Presenter
Garry Davies was born and bred in Oldham, Lancashire.

Skip forward again to 1995, after moving down south,he became an active volunteer for Hospital Radio Tunbridge Wells. Garry’s favourite decade was the 70s. He had the opportunity to see most of the Classic Rock and Prog bands of the time and enjoyed adding to his record collection every week. More recently, while he was considering starting his own radio station, Garryfound Radio Jupiter playing all the songs he loves and would have played (“saving me the trouble”).

Hi, I’m Hope! I’m a Welsh lass with a huge love for music.

She has made her radio presentation debut on Radio Jupiter in early 2024 and, although she is our youngest presenter, she has made a bit of a splash with the listeners. Hope started studying at the University of Winchester in 2020 and now lives in Cardiff.

Frankie Rae1
Frankie Rae
Presenter
Frankie Rae, being a bit camera shy, is not shy behind a microphone. He comes to Radio Jupiter with many years of experience, first becoming a DJ in 1965 at his local youth club, moving on to pubs and clubs from there. It wasn’t until 2014, when he was asked to dust off his record collection for a gig, that we once again became interested in doing presenting and has been doing a radio show since 2019. He really enjoyed working with his local community radio station which recently closed. Looking around for something to do, gladly, he found Radio Jupiter. Although Frankie enjoys the new music that Radio Jupiter likes to mix and blend with the classic music from the stars each and every hour, his favourite era is the 1960s. In fact, in addition to presenting for Radio Jupiter, you can find him on Radio Seabreeze doing a 2-hour 60s weekly show. Frankie brings with him a wealth of musical knowledge to these new shores of Radio Jupiter.
