I'm Rod

I am on

Rod is a keen tennis player at Lindfield Lawn Tennis Club even after two replacement hips thanks to a very heavy sports background. He says ‘I knew immediately I met the team at MDR that it was something I could enjoy and contribute to. Our hospital is fantastic and needs our support. It’s exciting that via the internet our audience can be literally worldwide.’


Rod went to the old Grammar School in Harlands Road and moved back to Haywards Heath in 1984 to join the commuters to London each day. Now retired from any full time work it was whist he was painting a new bedroom that he knocked over his radio and found himself listening to Mid Downs Radio.

The presenter said they were looking for new people and at the start of 2017 he began to shape his own show which will air on Monday afternoons 5pm – 7pm. ‘Rod’s Tea Break’ is a reflection of his wish not to be restricted into any genre of music or content but to present ‘a programme to lift the spirits’. Other than that it’s a blank sheet of paper waiting to evolve into something light-hearted and fun. Rod hopes it becomes a show you will want to tune into.
