DJ Jon Jessop

Jon started in the entertainment business in his late teens, with a friend taking their Vinyl’s and Light Show on the road to many events. Jon’s built a collection of soul music and knowledge that quickly became known as the best around Liverpool.

Jon works for friends and personal clients as the Top Soul DJ around. He was ‘head hunted’ from local hospital radio to Liverpool’s Radio City 96.7 FM in the 1980’s where he remained until the call came in 2000 to join the fledgling commercial station in Southport, Dune FM.

In 2006 his personal dream came true when he was able to create Southport’s Community Radio Station SCR broadcasting on 87.7fm. SCR became a great favourite with listeners and went on to deliver six very successful series.

Sometimes called The Human Juke Box, Jon’s always ready for what the audience request and is a great believer in accommodating the musical choices of his personal clients at the many functions he’s asked to compere and entertain.

Now with over 25 years experience in Radio and an address book to die for ( Just ask for his resume to check his photo collection.) Jon’s blending his knowledge, skills, contacts and experience with the new exciting world of radio in the 21st century.

Coast 1079 is indeed a cool new radio station, with some solid foundations.
