As a broadcaster, he’s the man who tells laugh-out-loud stories and talks to the listener as if pulled up on a bar stool next to them. And as a musician, he’s the frontman of legendary 90’s outfit Fun Lovin’ Criminals, a funk-fried indie outfit that broke big in the UK and sold over ten million records.
