Chris Blount

The first series of Flashback Newquay with Chris Blount has now finished, and Chris will be back in 2019 with more memories of our town.

He was the first voice on BBC Cornwall in 1983 and before that presented Morning Sou’West, the BBC breakfast programme.

He began his broadcasting career in the 1950s when he produced programmes and played loud rock and roll music from the open window of his attic in Newquay’s Bay View Terrace (on his own short distance radio station!)

Chris was thrilled to join the Radio Newquay team: “I look forward to promoting the best of our wonderful town through its airwaves and to sharing some of the archived voices and memories I have had the privilege to record over many years.”
