Steve Dwight, the presenter of the new show ‘Calon Uncut’ on Calon FM, the new Community Radio for Wrexham, is a musician himself. He knows how important it is for a local band or a solo artist to have a media platform where you can show your talent and ‘spread the word’ within the local area.

“Steve Dwight is a happy, funny, outgoing Kiwi with a passion for the local music scene.”
Calon FM Station Managers Nadira Tudor & Oliver Pscherer.

Steve was born 38 years ago in New Zealand and had an interest in music right from the start as my parents are both keen rock fans. He started playing the guitar at 18 and played mainly with a New Zealand band called ‘Skoda with a carphone’.

On Steve’s 21st birthday he left New Zealand to live in the USA and played with a number of bar bands in the mid-west. After a brief time back in New Zealand he travelled to Wrexham in 1993 and have played in bands around the northwest since that time. Bands such as ‘Lip’, Gooky Stance’ and ‘Locker’.

Steve is now in a band called ‘4jerry’ which plays a mix of classic punk covers and originals.

“I am lucky enough to have been given the opportunity to present some music shows on Calon FM, Friday night I get to play loads of fun party rock tunes on a show called ‘Rock On Calon’ and Sunday lets me meet some of the areas most talented musicians on the ‘Calon Uncut’ show.

Wrexham has a vibrant music scene with a seemingly endless supply of talent and its great to be part of a community radio station that allows me to help promote this wealth of talent.”
