“I know how important it is to the community here, especially during lockdown, and I’m excited to present their breakfast show for a little while.”

Marlow FM’s managing director, Graham Duthie, said: “There’s a lot Mike can teach us, and we’re sure his years of experience will rub off.

“We also hope to have Mike on the team will increase awareness of our current fundraising drive to see the station safely into 2021.”

Mike, who lives near Cookham, will present the show live from Marlow FM’s studios each weekday between 7am and 9am up until Christmas.
