Mark Wakely MA (Audio & Radio Production)

Ex-pirate radio DJ and current Drive Time & Sunday Morning Breakfast presenter on local community station Beat Route Radio, Mark could be a described as a little audio and radio obsessed.

His route to this point was never going to be straight and he comes at this having spent 10 years as a Licenced London Black Cab driver (Taxi!) where in recent years he has been a voracious consumer and critic of podcasts of all types and quality.

Mark believes that sharp sound shouldn’t just be the preserve of the professional podcasters with money to throw at it, and they often don’t even have manage to give the listener that. 1386Audio is his way to address this – to make great audio accessible to everyone, both podcaster and listener.

Rachel (Cheetham) Wakely PgDip BA

If Rachel had a super-power it would be the ability to make the complex simple. To distil the essence of something down to its very best and essential parts.

An extensive background in working with businesses to support their growth, and far too many years in advertising copywriting, marketing and sales complements Mark’s technical skills and enables us to deliver podcasts that work to your goals and business needs, as well as sounding awesome.
