A RADIO DJ and gardening expert has launched a new show on an Essex station.

Ken Crowther, who lives in Stanway, Colchester, has landed a new programme on  City Sound radio station, which is based in Chelmsford.

The new gig, which kicked-off on Sunday, is his first live radio show since he left BBC Essex in 2020 and sees him give garden advice and tips to listeners.

Ken said: “I feel it is a real privilege to be able to share my knowledge and skills learned over a lifetime of working in professional horticulture with the radio audience. 

“I'm looking forward to the buzz of receiving listeners emails and WhatsApp messages in the live radio studio of City Sound Radio in Chelmsford.

“Gardening is more than just a job for me – I love it.

"Who would have thought I'd still be able to offer out the sound advice of my father nearly four decades on.

“In these stressful times, when gardening has become such an important part of life, it is important to have this type of content available on the internet."
