Mark Crossley joined Absolute Radio in the summer of 2009 and presents Saturday mornings from 11am - 2pm and Rock N Roll Football on Sunday afternoons from 2pm - 6pm, as well as hosting a show on Absolute Radio 90s
Mark's always been passionate about music and radio. Before he moved to One Golden Square, he was in charge of student station Fly FM whilst studying for a degree in Broadcast Journalism at Nottingham Trent University. He was named Best Male Presenter at the 2008 Student Radio Awards and subsequently worked on stations across the Midlands including BRMB and Trent FM.
He's also produced and crafted documentaries featuring interviews with bands such as Suede and Supergrass and hosts the weekly Football League podcast 'We Are Going Up' which is available on iTunes.
Mark was given just ten minutes to prepare for his first ever live interview on student radio. It was with Liam Fray from The Courteeners and thanks to Wikipedia, he just about got by!
He also says Suede is probably the coolest band he's interviewed during his time at Absolute Radio and remembers that '...hearing Brett and Matt confirm they were ready to write new songs and that they hoped to bring out a new record in 2012 was an incredibly exciting moment.'
Mark's also a massive fan of Joy Division, the Manics and the Stone Roses and claims the best things about his job are that he gets to play awesome music, interview the likes of Brett Anderson and attend fantastic festivals, including the Isle of Wight where he accidentally bumped into Iggy Pop backstage whilst a little bit tipsy!
