Leroy (Badboy) Brown is a radio presenter working on Power FM.
Leroy was born in Derby in the Midlands many moons ago & joined the British Army at the tender age of 16.
At the age of 19 while serving in Belize Central America Leroy was approached by officer who ordered him into the camp radio studio to learn how to do radio shows for the forces as he’d always noticed that Leroy was always listening to music on his boogie box.
As they say, the rest is history.
Leroy ended up broadcasting for BFBS the British forces radio network in Belize, Central America, & Germany.
In the uk Leroy did hospital & community radio in Derby with an ardent following.
Moving to the Canary Islands in 2001 Leroy working for various station across the Canaries until returning back to the UK in 2009.
So now Leroy is about to link back up with some old radio colleague’s from days gone by, & really looking forward to working & taking Power Fm forward on this new venture.
