Liz Roberts is Content Lead at Falklands Radio. Although she has been presenting various shows in the station over the past decade, she has only been in this role since 2016. Previously Liz worked for the first ever television station here in the Falkland Islands.
Originally from Bangor in North Wales, Liz moved to the Falklands in 1994 when she was just 16. She has lived here ever since and now is the mother to three sons.
Liz boasts a good knowledge of the top 40 charts spanning decades and although she would describe her music taste as eclectic, she has admitted to having a guilty pleasure in cheesy pop.
Music is a big passion in Liz’s life, which is what led her to apply for a job at Falklands Radio in the first place. You can join Liz on Falklands Radio any weekday from 12:00 to 15:00 for the Afternoon Show.
Jason Lewis has worked at FIBS, FIRS and now Falklands Radio. Although he cannot remember when it started, he says that “radio is something I keep coming back to. Working partly as the station engineer and as a presenter is an ideal combination.”
He was born in Kingston Upon Thames and moved to the Falklands in 1989 to discover more about his Grandmother’s birthplace. Initially planning on only being here for one year, Jason is now married and lives in the Islands with his wife and two children, one of whom is currently studying in the UK with the other hopefully soon to follow.
As well as working towards a future where the radio station has everything it needs to grow and improve from an engineering standpoint, Jason also presents the Early Evening Show on weekdays from 17:00 to 19:00.
Jason is a member of the Falklands Islands Operatic and Dramatic Association. He listens primarily to 80s music, but also has a love for instrumental type music and novelty music. He enjoys artists such as Madonna, Ska and Enigma. When asked about his future plans, Jason stated that he intends to “join Pinky and the Brain in taking over the world!”
Myriam Booth is the station’s longest serving member of staff. She started as Continuity Announcer at Falklands Radio in 1961 and has since become one of our most popular Freelance Presenters. You can join Myriam for country music on ‘Pot Luck’ on a Friday between 20:00 and 22:00 or for 1950s – 1970s Pop on the ‘Vinyl Frontier’ on Tuesdays from 20:00 to 22:00.
Myriam was born in Punta Arenas in Chile, but has lived in the Falkland Islands for most of her life and considers the Islands to be her home. She worked for the British Antarctic Survey as the Stanley Officer until she retired in 2004, after 43 years of service.
She is an avid Manchester United FC fan, but her true passion is music, especially rock & roll and country! Myriam’s favourite artist is Elvis Presley and her music taste ranges from 1940s to 1970s pop and country music up until the 1990s.
Steve Bishop was a button presser behind the scenes at many commercial and BBC local stations and went on to present his own show on Radio Caroline. Further stints on community radio stations in the South East of England led to him recording and syndicating his own oldies show, with music in the 50s to 80s period, from the comfort of his garden coal bunker, despite the fire risk. You can join him on Falklands Radio for the Old Record Club on a Sunday between 16:00 and 19:00.
He can often be found on the terraces of Queens Park Rangers football club but wonders why, as they never go and see him when he's bad. Drinks tea like it's going out of fashion. A self-confessed luddite, he still uses CD players, record decks and tape machines. Steve’s music taste includes artists such as Electric Light Orchestra, Al Stewart, David Bowie and 1970s Queen. He intends to get away with doing his radio show for as long as possible.

In her free time, Sheena enjoys reading, watching movies, travelling, driving, listening to music and spending time with her closest family members – ideally a situation that involves food (preferably prepared by someone else!)
Looking to the future, Sheena intends on pioneering a method of lowering cholesterol and reducing waistlines whilst still managing to enjoy food that is still technically ‘bad’ for you!

He’s been attempting to get into running with very mixed results. In the last few months he’s completed his first triathlon and half-marathon.
Music has always been a passion in Stacy’s life and something of an obsession. Being able to showcase songs that he loves on the radio has always been something that he’s enjoyed being able to do. Besides that, he enjoys bingeing on TV shows and spending time with his young son, James.
Stacy loves many different genres of music, but mainly listens to Indie or Alternative music. Some of his favourite bands include Radiohead, The Beatles, Super Furry Animals, Pixies, Outkast, Spiritualized, Portishead, The National, The Bluetones, The Smiths… The list goes on and on…
