Astrid Erver


I was brought up in East Germany. The Berlin wall fell when I was 13 and only then did I have access to Western music, ‘officially.’

After finishing school I moved to Berlin and worked in the travel industry.  This helped me to travel the world.

Living in the capital gave me the opportunity to see all my favorite bands live.  I like many different types of music but my passion is rock music.

I am a footbal fan supporting HSV (Hamburger Sportverein) and used to travel regularly to Hamburg to watch them. I played Tennis at quite a high level but a knee injury ended my sporting ambitions.

In 2019 I moved to the UK along with my huge music collection which is still growing. I had never worked in radio until 2020. I lost my job in the travel industry during the Covid pandemic and was persuaded to have a go at playing my music on the radio. I was very nervous at first but soon began to enjoy it!
