Presented by Mark Coe & Mark White
Like many teenagers Mark Coe was really into music and by the age of 15 he began his DJ career. At this age, mainly playing at house parties with his unique blend of disco and Chicago house music, he was quickly spotted by promoters and in the late 80’s became heavily involved in the rave seen in London. This was a great time for the whole music scene as house music started to attract the masses. Mark played at numerous raves and eventually, when clubs accepted the scene, moved on to play at the majority of London venues including Café de Paris, Camden Palace & Ministry of Sound as well as traveling the globe as the scene really took off.
The early 90’s gave birth to a new range of pirate radio and this is where Mark’s passion took him. He quickly became a recognisable presenter across various stations before finally settling at the original Juice 94FM. This quickly became one of the most successful pirate stations in London and when it finally closed Mark decided to hang up his decks.
It was in 2013 when Mark was tempted out of retirement and has appeared on many digital stations such as JuiceFM, Fresh Radio and Cruise FM.
And now here he is, joined by Mark White, to present The Hangover Show on Saturday mornings. A show filled with lots of fun, laughter and great music.
Mark White entered the world in 1962, it was a difficult birth as he was born with a microphone in his hand but he was soon silenced as they cut the umbilical chord which turned out to be the mic cable.
After briefly experimenting with the usual things you do when growing up like school where he left with an O level in Class clown. A brief spell with Millwall FC and Southend United as an apprentice he discovered there is more to life than kicking people around the park and embarked on his journey into the entertainment business proper and attended media college studying Journalism, Radio and TV.
After opening an entertainment bar in Essex called Bonkers where he could be seen impersonating Rod Stewart, Freddie Mercury, Right said Fred, Franknfurter and Madonna he decided it was time to take his show global and spent a year in Portugal 5 nights a week entertaining hotel guests around the Algarve.
In 2001 he took his stockings, bald wig, pointy Madonna mammary glands and other props to Eastern Europe spending 8 years which included worm farming, yes worm farming and bagging compost which literally meant I started at the bottom of the source and my career grew quickly which led to me owning 2 karaoke bars, hosting a morning radio show called ‘Tere hommikust Tallin’ (Good morning Tallinn) and picking up work DJ ing around clubs and bars and appearances on TV ads and voice overs for multinational brands.
I did a brief stint as a DJ on cruise ships which wasn’t really my idea of fun and ended up in Thailand with a Hangover (Show) from 2PM-4PM Monday to Friday on Buzzin radio Pattaya with Patrick Murray, the man himself, Mickey Pearce from Only fools and Horses. Cushty.
Next is this new venture where Mark will be presenter, programme controller, in fact if it enters his mind, it goes on air
