Assistant Station Manager & Presenter

Lloyd Murray


Part man, part machine, Lloyd is our resident #Smartarse & Assistant Station Manager.

Lloyd always wants to be right much to the annoyance of everyone else. He can’t help it he was manufactured that way on the Wirral at the beginning of the 80’s. Realising his powers he moved to South Wales to hide in the Newport underground. Today, still wanted by the government, he survives as a South Wales ONE radio presenter. If you have a question, and nobody else can help you, you won’t need to find him as he will give his opinion anyway, maybe you could ask….The #Smartarse

Favourite Quote?

Okay! I’ll talk! In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max’s toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew school play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog… When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out… But the worst thing I ever done – I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theatre, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa – and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life – Lawrence Cohen

Lloyd’s Shows

South Wales ONE Show

Smells Like Kevin Bacon

Presented by Lloyd Murray & Lee Jones

Six degrees of separation...with music. That is the concept of 'Smells Like Kevin Bacon'.  We pick 2 songs submitted by listeners randomly at the start of the show.  Lloyd & Lee then have 60 minutes to link them with 6 additional songs in the middle.  Each song must link to the previous song. As we don't know the song choices until the start of the show, and we're looking for […]

Break out your Morrissey posters, grab those corduroy trousers, pour beer in your carpet, and join Lloyd on a trip back to The Indie Disco. Proudly sposored by Cobra Kai 2:  Dojos Rising
