Dan Martin

Getting you into the weekend mood with the soundtrack to your weekend every Friday and Saturday night between 9pm and 1am.  Dan Martin presents Erewash Sound's Party Classics.

On Party Classics, Dan puts the decades against eachother in 70s vs 80s on Friday nights and 90s vs 00s on Saturday night. Listen in at around 9.30pm to see which songs are taking on the job of representing their decade and then get voting on our Facebook page.  After 10pm, Dan mixes four or five songs together to create our Floorfiller Mix.  If you need a further push to get into the weekend mood then after 11pm and 12am, Dan plays five of the biggest Party Classics completely non-stop.

He also presents the Sunday edition of The Late Night Wind Down - a show of easy-listening tracks in stark contrast to the faster pace of Friday and Saturday nights.

But who is Dan?

Dan is a local guy from Borrowash. He always wanted to be on the radio from the moment he walked into the hospital radio studio of Radio Link in Derby, where as one of his treats in school holidays was to sit in on his dads hospital radio show.  Dan first took to the air in 2005 on internet only radio station QMR.

He joined the on-air line-up of Erewash Sound's online only service in 2007 to host Saturday evenings.  When Erewash Sound launched on FM in March 2010, Dan made the move to Saturday afternoons and was the fourth presenter to broadcast on 96.8 FM on the very first day!  Dan also presented Homeward Bound and Morning Plus in the early years of Erewash Sound on 96.8 FM. 

In October 2012, Dan took a break from on-air presenting to pursue other opportunites, but returned in 2014 on Friday and Saturday nights to present the brand new Party Classics show, which he still presents to this day. 

In addition to being on the air, Dan is Erewash Sound's Broadcast Technology Director.  Along with Paul Stacey, he heads up the radio stations technology team who are responsbile for making sure all the equipment is working correctly and all the wires are plugged into the right sockets.  On the very rare occasion something goes wrong, Dan is there to fix it (or hes caused it).
