Radio DJ marks 10 years on air in Hertfordshire
A RADIO station – and its only remaining original presenter – are celebrating 10 years on air today (Thursday).
Jack FM (formerly called Hertbeat), which is based in Old Knebworth, first broadcast to this part of Hertfordshire on March 3, 2001.
Steve Folland originally hosted the 10am-2pm weekdays slot, but after a year or so was shunted forward to the breakfast show – and has been there ever since.
He tells this week’s Welwyn Hatfield Times about that eventful first day, and his numerous embarrassing stunts on air – mainly involving dressing up in women’s clothing.
But it’s not a job he’d swap.

He says: “One of the good things about being here, is that at other stations you get dictated to and told exactly what to do.
“We wouldn’t be able to say or do the things we do. It’s much more relaxed and creative here.”
