About Chas

Chas has been broadcasting since 2000, joining Express four years ago. He started by playing drums in a band, which lead to being part of a  local band show on the radio then 'sidekick' across the desk on shows than his own show and hasn't looked back!

Favourite Song - Anything rock. Simple as that.

Favourite Gig - I do like a bit of theatrics, so Alice Cooper or Babymetal. But for sheer energy, I'd say Skillet

Favourite Film - Guardians Of The Galaxy or a spot of Deadpool 

Favourite Place In Portsmouth - Ferry Terminal (mainly because I have recently discovered the channel hop thing to France)
