Lewis Allsopp

Lewis can still remember making his own radio shows at home in the conservatory, saying that ‘"Although my only listener was my grandma, and only because she was in the room with me, it sparked my love of radio!"

Lewis joined the Erewash Sound team in 2018, originally as a Summer cover presenter as other team-members took their holidays, but never really left when the Summer was over! 

He took over the Wednesday Drivetime show, Homeward Bound (as it was known back then) in the autumn of 2018, a slot he still presents to this day, now called ‘Erewash Sound Drive’.   He was later joined on the show in 2019 by long-term producer Molly Hall. 

In 2019, Lewis was awarded the Bronze award for Best Newcomer at the national Community Radio Awards – something which he still says he can’t believe to this day! 

During the coronavirus lockdown, over the Spring and Summer of 2020, he presented ‘Erewash’s Live Quiz’, a virtual event which took place via the Erewash Sound Facebook page, and helped to bring together the community at a time where we were all urged to physically stay apart. 

After lockdown restrictions were eased, the quiz was brought to an end in its Facebook form, but not for too long, as, in September 2020, Lewis began to present ‘Erewash’s BIG Quiz!’, a gameshow-style show, as part of a new-look on-air Sunday schedule 

Lewis can also be heard as part of the Erewash Sound News Team, presenting weather and news for the borough each week. 

Behind the scenes, he works to produce audio content and features for the station, is part of the Erewash Sound’s marketing team and worked on the team which launched Erewash Sound on 103.5FM in October 2020, as well as sometimes helping out with some technical stuff when output is presented from outside Erewash Sound HQ!
