up a radio station in East London this cool cat is more than just about the cool cuts that bounce from the speakers. He see’s all the hip happenings from fashion to art in East London and brings them not just to the airwaves but to the recently refurbished Hoxton Radio website. Meet this weeks LDNER, David Preshaah…

Where do you live and what do you love about that area?

I live in Bethnal Green, it’s full of interesting pubs and bars and is right next to Victoria Park which is great for running and very handy for festivals. Its also nicely away from downtown Shoreditch so you mainly see people in slippers and Super Tenants as appose to Coconut water fans in the corner shop.

Tell us about your day job?

I founded Hoxton Radio in 2012 and its grown into my full time obsession. Each day presents a multitude of fiddly tasks and adventures researching and writing about events in East London, listening to new music, reprimanding our presenters and firing out loads of mentions on social media. You can tune in on the website at www.hoxtonradio.com or via the tune in app.

You must be out and about a lot at various events, what are some of your favourite hangouts?

I love Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, it was one of the first venue’s I ever ventured to around here, The Reliance on Old Street is nice – the bar itself has a very good story to it and The Albion on Goldsmiths Row is great for football and has wonderful beers too.

Whats going on for Hoxton Radio at the moment?

We’re going to be bolstering our coverage of fashion across East London, while also focusing on video and telling the stories of local businesses through short presenter led pieces.


What would be your ‘perfect’ day in London?

Awake and head to Market Sports in Shoreditch for an all over workout, lunch at The Breakfast Club then onto a football match at Arsenal (where we win). Early evening we swing by the Angelic in Angel for a swift one then to Gallipoli on Upper Street for some wholesome filling Turkish food. We’ll then go for a concert at the Brixton Academe, check our coats in and go gonzo to some indie rocking band.
