About the show

After meeting on Calon FM’s ‘Introduction to Radio’ course, presenters Doug, Kim Disley & Steve Breeze got together to form “Kick Start the Weekend” or Kick Start as it has now become known.

Every Saturday from 10am-12pm, in between the great music, banter and giving information on local event, the show features the Quiz and “Calon Rewind”.  Rewind is a half hour dedicated to a bygone year, with Top 40 tunes and titbits of information to help you guess correctly.

The Quiz has a different quiz master each week, Doug, Kim or Steve, each with their own style but no matter how difficult or easy the questions Steve usually manages to run away into the lead!

About the presenters


Originally from Hampshire, where he spent many years as a resident DJ in nightclubs. Doug joined Calon in 2009. He says his family are the reason for his passion for music. “As a youngster growing up in the 70’s, my elder sister & brother would bring home 7” singles of the records they were dancing to in the clubs, which I would listen to for hours. In later life, this passion has led into a continuous search to find more quality tracks, released as singles or on albums that may have passed me by before”

Kim Disley

Kim presents Kick Start on Saturday mornings from 10am-12 with Steve and Doug.  She fights hard to get a selection of rock music among all the 80’s and Soul music that the lads insist on playing! When not in the Calon FM studio Kim nips into another kind of studio as an Applied Arts student, specialising in glass at Glyndwr University

Steve Breeze

I first got involved with Calon FM after being told about the Introduction to Radio course. It was here I met my fellow presenters Kim and Doug and we somehow came up with the Kick Start show.Once I got over the nerves and how much actually goes into presenting a show, I really started having fun. When I’m not playing DJ on Calon FM you will see me on the streets of Wrexham with some fairly nervous looking people, as I’m a driving instructor.
