Biography Gary’s love of music was fired up in the late 70’s by a passion for the Beatles and all things punk rock and mod. On leaving school he became an office boy for Decca Records (according to him, probably the least punk record label imaginable in the Western world at the time!) before taking over the telephone receptionist job from a departing Danny Baker at the NME. From there he joined the UK’s most happening independent plugging company and through them began a stint on London’s Capital Radio (radio’s youngest DJ at the time, clocking in at a tender 19 years old), from then on the world was his oyster (or so he was told) with many TV stints including Thames TV’s White Light, Channel 4’s Earsay, Carlton’s The Beat, and recently Gary Crowley Presents on Rockworld TV/ Sky 368, as well as doing time with radio stations like GLR, XFM and now the BBC station for the capital, BBC London 94.9, and Amazing Radio. A long time respected champion of new music, Gary has given many new bands and artists their first taste of radio exposure, with the likes of Suede, Dodgy, Oasis and Bush all going on to bigger and better things.
