Sue Clark

SUE CLARK had a passion for music from childhood. However, after studying for her MA in Sociology & Social Policy at London Metropolitan University, her early working life took her into an interesting and very different world. She qualified as a Social Worker and set up and ran a community centre for homeless families in Camden. Throughout those early days, Sue fed her love of music by DJ’ing whenever she could, which took her overseas for a year.

 

On her return to the UK she attended many courses in radio production and was a co-founder of Transisters (a radio group making features on women's issues) she also did voluntary work at UCH hospital radio.

 

Sue volunteered at the newly launched Kiss FM which led to paid work and a permanent position as Assistant Producer and then quickly became Producer, for 6 years, on most of the daytime programmes. Her main project was developing a weekly, over night, guest show with contributors from the cutting edge of dance music including Norman Cook, Metalheadz, 4Hero, and Ben Watt.

 

Sue also produced the Kiss DJ Academy, a search for the DJs of the future, and several live OB’s including the Essential Festival Roots Day, the International Dance Music Awards and Notting Hill Carnival. During this time she worked on several

 radio projects including Fem FM, Festival Radio and Brazen Radio, where she was Head of Music and also produced and presented several over night and early morning music programmes.

 

She then moved to BBC GLR, during its transition to BBC London Live, first producing their live late night black music shows, then the daily afternoon show, as well as outside broadcasts and weekend shows across the station’s output.

 

Sue spent a year producing on Johnnie Walker’s Drivetime Show at Radio 2; produced regular features for Radio 4's The Learning Curve and Woman's Hour and for World Service's Meridian Books, On Screen and Outlook programmes.

 

As a freelance producer she made music documentaries for BBC Radio 1 and 2 including: Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight, UK Black, The JFK Generation, Jammin’ in Jamaica, and Vinyl Resting Place.

 

Then onto producing programmes for the BBC Network Radio and a number of commercial radio companies.

 

In 2004 Sue set up her own independent radio production company. Her story continues and unfolds over the pages of this website...
