Shock Radio Awards 2014




The annual Shock Radio Awards were held at Tiger Tiger in Manchester this year. It was a fantastic night, and I'd like to say a huge thank you to the organisers, namely Dave Dullage, Oscar Smith, and Orry Verducci, who were responsible for making it such a huge success.

Myself and my show Northzen were nominated for 6 Awards: Best Feature (for Charity Shop Jukebox), Most Improved Presenter, Best Male, Best Specialist Music Show, Sexiest Male Voice, and Pick Of The Year. I was massively surprised and honored to be considered as a nomination in so many categories, and once again I'd like to thank anyone who was kind enough to put my name forward. As you can probably tell, after the votes were totaled up, I was the winner of the Pick of The Year award. By my standards, that's quite an achievement, and I was over the moon to accept the award.

So, thank you to anyone who listened to Northzen this year, and supported all the things I do. It made all the effort just that little more worth it. A special thank you to my mum and Henry Lewis, who tuned in every week without fail. Congratulations to the other award winners. And I'd also like to thank the Executive Committee at Shock Radio for working tirelessly behind the scenes throughout the year to give people like myself the opportunity to broadcast on the station.

I've had a fantastic year, as I hope everyone else has, and I'm looking forward to returning to the station in September to continue to the good work that we do.
