The East Herts Radio Team
Mickey Gocool is North London born and bred and now lives in Ware with his two children. Mickey is the Managing Director of East Herts Radio but sees his role as not just administrative, but very hands-on, with training Presenters and Staff, maintaining the sophisticated automated playout system as well as ensuring the studio hardware is optimally functioning.
Having young children involved in sports in the local area this is an area that he positively pursues. He is a coach with Ware Youth under 9's girls team, and his son also plays for Ware Youth under 7's team. However, he is particularly interested in promoting any local teams to feed the growth of youth football.
Josh was born in Hertford and has grown up in East Herts. Active in the community, Josh writes a column every other week in the Hertfordshire Mercury, covering issues important to local people. In 2017, he co-founded Teen Voice UK, a non-profit organisation dedicated to empowering young people and making their voices heard. The organisation has campaigned on issues important to young people, including mental health awareness, reforming educational policy and youth homelessness. At East Herts Radio, Josh wants to use his show to talk a bit about the issues that are affecting local people, and to speak about the many interesting things happening across East Herts. He wants to make sure that members of the local community have plenty of opportunities to chat with him on the show, whether that’s in the studio or through our phone lines. He also wants to share the music he loves, and discuss different tracks with co-presenters and listeners alike. And, most importantly, he wants to know what our listeners want to hear - whether that’s a topic they want to be discussed or a song they want to be played.
Alex has lived in Ware all his life and has a very active role within the local community. Finishing his further education in 2018, Alex now works full time in a variety of primary schools coaching sports to children aged 4-11.
