Saturday Lunchtime with Nino Firetto, every Saturday from midday.
Nino is a television and radioman who in the eighties was all over our TV screens. You may recognise his face from shows like ‘Splash’ (for children’s ITV), Get Fresh, Mr & Mrs, Give Us A Clue, Who’s Baby? What’s My Line? and many more.
Nino's radio career began at UBN. He went on to DJ on 208 Radio Luxembourg and later launched such radio stations as Radio West, Galaxy 101, CNFM, Kestrel FM and the forerunner of Radio Exe - ‘Exeter FM’.
Now in his 40th year presenting radio shows, Nino returns with a jam-packed hour full of music and memories every Saturday afternoon.
"It’s great to be back on the radio in Exeter. Since leaving Devon I have been ‘on-air’ in Los Angeles and in San Francisco. Of all the places I have worked and lived, I can say with my hand on my heart, Exeter is, was, and always will be my favourite.
"Okay so it’s not exactly California weather but the people are warmer, the pubs are inviting, the city hustles with all the new young talent coming through its schools and colleges. I miss seeing Haldon Hill from the rooftops of Exeter’s city centre high rise buildings, breakfast on Dartmoor, hiking along the Jurassic Coast, cream teas in Topsham, a rainy Saturday afternoon under an umbrella, watching Alphington F.C. in their orange kits win and … did I mention the people?"
