Created and presented by Kirk spinning a yarn against his own name, after being nicknamed Captain all his life. Even though The Warp Factor makes reference to Star Trek, worry not, it's not a Trekkie related show!

There are regular studio guests and even the occasional theme show so keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for more information. The show encourages audience participation, and undertakes some time travel from the 1950's until the present day, focusing on a few songs from a particular year - it's up to you to figure out which year and let Kirk know!

Kirk's radio career (very much tongue in cheek) started when he was just ten years old, co-hosting a show with a good friend of his who's father had been a part of Radio Caroline, and salvaged equipment from one of their sinking ships - giving it to the young lads to try out. The show meant silly antics and lots of music was literally at their control.

"If only I had kept those tapes we made, that could have made for interesting listening now!"

Fast forward a few years and having co-presented with a friend at Great Ormand Street Hospital and Meridian FM, Kirk sought to bring his own show to air. So have you got what it takes to join Kirk and accelerate through The Warp Factor?
