Chris Martin

Chris Martin

Over Chris' career he's won awards as Head of Music at Leeds Student Radio, been sent onto the streets of Auckland to find members of the kiwi mafia, and co-hosted a show for Los Angeles station Indie 103.1

Chris loves music and Leeds United. At Yorkshire Radio he slowly lost his sanity on-air, living the highs and lows of Leeds' promotion/relegation rollercoaster. He also presented a new Yorkshire music show, and was once referred to as '...a Chris Martin, not the Chris Martin' by Peanut from Kaiser Chiefs (although he prefers the time Dave Grohl referred to him as '...not that geek from Coldplay').

He spent two years at the helm of the NME Radio Evening Show, breaking new bands and chatting to rock royalty. He's spoken to Slash about the greatest riffs of all time, he's also interviewed two thirds of Led Zeppelin, The Specials, Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, Rage Against The Machine, Muse, Kasabian, Vampire Weekend and loads more.

These days you'll find him here, there, and everywhere on Absolute Radio, having a laugh along the way. You can also catch him in clubs around the UK playing great indie rock n roll for Propaganda and doing voiceovers for everyone from Spotify to the Football League.
