Profile: Richard James

Richard JamesMy name is Richard Archer, however if you tune in to me on the radio, you’ll hear my name as “Richard James” – James is my middle name. I was born in Edmonton, London and moved down to Leigh-on-sea when I was just one year old. I have lived here ever since.

My hobby has always been all types of music. I am married with two grown up children and I was a postman for 34 years.
I have been with Southend hospital Radio over 22 years and still enjoy every minute of it. I hope to make your stay at Southend Hospital a little more enjoyable. I have two shows a week – the Saturday Night Rock Show from 7-9pm, as well as a show called Chartbreakers, which features new releases, which you can catch on Sunday evenings between 6-8pm.
I hope you enjoy listening to my programmes. Best wishes for a speedy recovery
