Southend-lad Ollie Winiberg, a captivating presence heard on BBC Radio for over 13 years, has enthralled audiences with his popular programme, BBC Music Introducing, as well as his appearances on BBC Radio One, 6 Music and 1xtra.

In 2021, he departed from the BBC to collaborate with the esteemed music sync company, Music Gateway and Aston Microphones, to create his podcast, “The Heavy Hooks Show,” a weekly rock and metal podcast in the top 10% of most globally shared podcasts, committed to not only championing unsigned gems but interviewing icons in the world of heavy music. 

Ollie uses his inimitable, irreverent style of questioning to coax previously unheard tales of life in the limelight from some of the biggest names in heavy music.

Beyond his accomplishments in media, Ollie is a talented DJ and skilled drummer. His heroes include Mike Portnoy, Cozy Powell and Simon Phillips, whilst he also draws inspiration from David Brent, Nigel Tufnel, Alan Partridge and Richard Richard. His favourite musical moment was jamming with Jeff Beck at his house (playing on Cozy Powell’s kit!).
