Radio 1: The Jocks

PAGE, Mark

Sometimes, it's not even worth bothering to think of a 'funny' captionKNOWN as ‘Me, Mark Page’ to those few who listened to his tucked-away show, junior Steve Wright in appearance, but every bit young Alan Partridge in reality, whose main triumph was an elaborate and inconsistently told story in which he had, in a previous life, a ‘try-out’ for Darlington FC. Confusingly, also adopted ‘straight ahead’ muso approach when roped in for holiday cover on Saturday Live.

    Me Mark Page graduated from doing the breakfast show on Radio Tees (or TFM, as it became) where he was a well liked local celebrity and plunged into virtual obscurity with a short lived Radio 1 career (he did one edition of Top Of The Pops where nobody south of York had ever heard of him). He should never have left Radio Tees – our weekday mornings were brightened by his anecodtes about “Dennis of the Boro”, the Wednesday Wubble and his own version of Convoy called “Dennis and his CB” that knocks spots off the DLT version. I’d love to know where he is now and what he’s doing.
