Mario was born and raised in north London, not a million miles from the legendary, ‘Southgate Royalty’; a club name that still invokes a wistful daydream and moistens the eye of even the coolest of groovers… of a certain age. Like football (and Mario does – Arsenal, thanks for asking), his life to date has been a game of two halves.
Mario spent his early working years managing bars, restaurants and F&B departments in hotels, before opening his own ‘establishment’ in Limassol Cyprus.

It took a while, but eventually (even) he got wise to the idea that – as long as someone was prepared to pay you - it was easier spinning tunes and chatting ‘stuff’ on the radio for a living, than apologising for the delay in the arrival of sir’s “dirty burger”! Mario’s spent the last 20+ years in radio as a presenter, producer, editor and manager. He’s lived and broadcast in glam locations like Cyprus, Gibraltar, Germany, The Falkland Islands and the UK. He’s also carried his mic, ‘cans’ and much-loved grooves, to some ‘interesting’ locations like the turn-of-the-century Balkans and more recently, Afghanistan.
