On Air Team M-Z
I started DJing at 17 doing mobile disco’s and youth clubs then I landed my first job in a bar in my home town. Then I continued with the movie disco’s and started to get more involved in bar and club work.
At the age of 21 I left to take on full time DJ work going to Germany and Austria. Then went on to do a summer season in Corfu which i was working with the PA’s and big name DJ’s. I did this for 3 years working all over Europe I even managed to drop a set in Antigua and Goa. I returned to the UK to carry on with bar and club work from Brighton all the way to Birmingham. Having now moved on to specialise in House and Deep House music I’m still working in bars and clubs and doing my Friday night dance show on Zack, which I get to play the best music on the planet.

Born in Cambridge but now living in Bury St Edmunds. Started in local radio in the town doing The Rock Show, covering other shows and even done a country show with my partner Karen. To date I've done approximately 350 shows. My main love of music will always be classic Rock. Favourite bands are Motorhead, AC/DC, Rainbow, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple etc. My main aim for the rock show is to bring great rock to the ZACK FM listeners and promote local up and coming as well as more established Rock bands by bringing them into the studio and getting their names known. Hobbies include working on and flying with Catalina PBY 5a Miss Pickup and Motorbikes. Biggest highlight, meeting Bruce Dickenson (Iron Maiden).

Steve Penk comes to Zack Fm every weekday morning from 9 am - 11am.
What will be in his next phone call !!
Steve Penk is a British radio and TV presenter. He was born in Rusholme, Manchester and is renowned for his wind-up calls. Penk has worked for various national and local UK radio stations. Aged just 16 he started his radio career at Piccadilly Radio in 1978 (subsequently rebranded Key 103), where his breakfast show delivered record ratings, the highest in the stations history to this day.
In 1997 Penk moved on to work at Capital Radio London presenting the mid-morning show. On his programme he regularly did his famous radio wind ups. It was during one of these "wind-up" calls that Penk had the idea to call the then British Prime Minister, Tony Blair. He was able to get through the No.10 switchboard and managed to get Blair on the air for a few minutes. Blair later mentioned during Prime Ministers Questions that Penk had prank called him that morning and at that point it became a global media story.
