About Us

Radio Jupiter is staffed entirely by volunteers.

Johnny Lewis

Co-founder, and Broadcast Engineer

About Johnny

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

Co-founder, Presenter and Programme Manager

About Peter

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.

Len Fisher

Presenter

About Len

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

Presenter

About Trevor

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.

Steve Ralph

Presenter

About Steve

Steve Ralph has had a real passion for Radio from an early age. He was given his first radio at the age of 4 and grew up listening to the offshore Radio Caroline in the 70s and 80s along with Laser 558.

Steve loves most types of music but especially the music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

His love of radio extends to collecting radios. He now has quite a collection to the dismay of his wife (not another radio, lol).

In addition to collecting radios, Steve has had experience with radio broadcasting in his younger days on some “pirate” radio stations on FM and Shortwave.

He continues to enjoy his programs 3 times a week on Cabin FM, Herne Bay’s community radio station, where he has been for over 5 years.

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Steve to Radio Jupiter where he will be playing music from the 60s to the present. All good stuff!

Clive G

Presenter

About Clive

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

Presenter

About Charlie

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”!

Chris Williams

Presenter

About Chris

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! 

Lee Vincent

Presenter

About Lee

Lee Vincent has been a radio presenter since mid-90s. He also does DJ and compere work and can be heard on various platforms such as Ambron Radio DAB, Sunshine Radio Online, and Hollands Palet DAB.

Lee has a great love of soul and Motown music as well as classic pop radio, which means that he loves all of the music played on Radio Jupiter.

An additional hobby of Lee’s is dancing. You just might find him dancing in the Mothership during his Radio Jupiter shows! Be sure to tune in.

Chris Tees

Presenter

About Chris

From an early age, Chris Tees has loved listening to music and Radio. At the age of 12, he presented a link on the breakfast show when he got to be DJ of the day on Radio 210.

Chris was a big fan of Caroline 558 in the 80s. He started his Radio adventure on Tarka Hospital Radio in Barnstaple and then Hospital Radio Exeter a little later. Chris has been involved in Radio ever since. He currently presents two evening shows for his local station, East Devon Radio. 

Chris likes a wide variety of music from Genesis, Coldplay, and The Eagles all of whom he has managed to see live. When he’s not on the radio you can find him in the kitchen. He has been a chef most of his adult life. Living in Exeter, he is originally from Reading. He regularly watches Exeter City FC but also follows Reading FC.

Radio Jupiter welcomes Chris and looks forward to his regular programs.

Kenny Peters

Presenter

About Kenny

Kenny Peters started in radio back in 2000 as a presenter on a community station in Cumbria, as Saturday Breakfast host, Ellaway’s 80s (Ellaway being his Batchelor name) and the ever popular 3-6am shift, when not even the seagulls were listening.

Since then, he’s always dreamed of being on “proper radio” and now hosts a 3 hour show on Medium Wave, as well as spinning the discs on Radio Jupiter. And to think his careers teacher said he would come to nothing!

He likes all kinds of music but specialises in Jazz, Funk and Oldies galore! 

Give him a listen and you might find your new favourite song!
