Mike Osman, one of Britain’s leading impressionists, is no stranger to radio. Mike built his reputation on the Capital Gold Breakfast Show, building his audience to a staggering 1.7m listeners. In that time he achieved three New York World Radio Awards, the Promax Gold Award and the CRCA Newcomer Award, and performed numerous sell-out concert tours.

“As a kid, I always enjoyed listening to the radio and had a great opportunity to present the Breakfast Show on Capital Gold for six and a half years, working with some incredible people. I returned to radio on BBC Radio Solent and as a co-host with Chris Tarrant on Smooth FM in 2007 and I’ve really missed it since then. This time around, I can do everything that I loved before but give back to the listeners with Great British Radio.

“There are thousands of great songs out there and when I switch on the radio I don’t hear enough of them and there are so many very interesting people in this world and they don’t have a voice, so Great British Radio is a platform for them to have that voice. It doesn’t matter if they are celebrities or not, everybody has something interesting to say and I want to hear it with great music, coupled with funny content that makes me laugh out loud. We can do it differently, we’re not saying what we’re doing is right but we think we are.

We’ll let you be the judge of that… It’s the most exciting thing I’ve ever done, working with great people. It’s best summed up in the voice of our genius producer ‘It’s a celebration of voices, thoughts and lives.’”
