Fred Setters


Hi my name is Fred Setters and I’m delighted to be part of the team here at South Wales ONE. My love of music and radio started way back in the 70’s as a young lad listening to Radio Luxembourg and it’s a passion that has stayed with me ever since. I present two shows – “After Hours”, which is an hour of the best ‘late nite’ music on the radio and “Simply Eighties” – it’s the show that does what it says on the tin!
