Andy was a mobile DJ in Manchester pubs, clubs and social events in the 1990s and with the onset of the internet he continued DJing as an online mix DJ – search for DJ Frankie Pigeon for examples of Andy’s early work.

In 2021 Andy became the host of film and TV music show Screen Sounds where he built up a loyal fanbase of listeners. After a year long hiatus that show returns in April 2023 here on MWR.

Andy was 18 years old in 1990 so the 90s are a well-loved era of music. He is well known as the host of 90s request show 'On This Day 90s'. Andy joins Mad Wasp Radio March 2023 and now hosts the Saturday morning fun show 'Choose The Choons' which is a mix of year focussed choices and listener requests as well as numerous special features. See the show page for full details of how to get involved.

Andy truly loves all genres of music so don't be surprised to hear an eclectic mix that might include Rush, The Inspiral Carpets and Worzel Gummidge in the same show...and that's just episode 1. You can contact Andy via his twitter page link here @andycraik and use the hashtags #ChooseTheChoons or #ScreenSounds. Email him via or

Andy’s DJ heroes are John Peel, Kenny Everett + Mark & Lard. Andy is thrilled to be hosting at a station where they all would have fit in perfectly.
