Ollie and the Team
Ollie Gallant - Presenter
I grew up round here and I love it. Previous jobs have included skippering boats on the Avon, working for the RSC as a child actor & frequenting many local pubs (on both sides of the bar). From an early age I threw myself head first into things, it used to result in grazed knees but now its just general chaos on air. I love bikes and although I may not look like your stereotypical biker its in the blood.
This summer I filmed a documentary riding a Russian Sidecar to the Arctic Circle. I grew a fluffy beard and it was a jolly time.Every day at the station is an adventure.
Meet the reprobates: I met Lindsey & Producer Simon when I started working at Touch, we have just as much fun off air as we do on and they keep me out of trouble on a daily basis.
Simon Alexander - Producer
My name is Simon and I grew up in Alcester. I went to both Alcester High School and Alcester Grammar School and I am moving to Stratford in a couple of weeks!
I've been with Touch FM for 2 years now, helping Ollie struggling through shows. I am a massive fan of festive knitwear and have taken to wearing scarves inside. Myself and Lindsey (see her newsreading face below) are big Manchester United fans, but can never talk about football on air as Ollie doesn't even know how many people play on a team. Absolutely love music. I play Piano and Drums and have been known to crack out an uncanny Paolo Nutini impression.
Love coming up with new features and having fun on air, especially when listeners get involved too. Catch us on our Facebook page to see what we're all about.
Lindsey Alder - Newsreader
I grew up in Harvington near Evesham before moving to Alcester at the age of 10. Now living in my first flat in Leamington.
Spent my early years at Salford Priors Primary before going to Alcester Grammar School.
Claverdon AFC's biggest fan - you'll find me watching 22 men in a field on a Saturday afternoon. Also enjoy singing in the office, talking to myself and getting ridiculously excited about anything vaguely competitive (particularly beating Ollie and Simon at pool). Also a bit of a Twitter freak - find me at @linds_alder.
