Howard Caine

Howard Caine started reading the news on Manx Radio 20 plus years ago. He’s still reading it – and can’t help but notice a lot of it looks very similar, albeit with more moving pictures.

In between bulletins, he’s made a variety of programmes for Manx Radio including “Mann in the Wild”, “A Walk with . .”, “Ta Mee Gindys” and “Sweet and Swing”

He is CEO and sole operative of BARF, the Bloopers Archive Foundation, and one of only two Manx Radio presenters to frequent the Manx Radio jazz studio, for “Jumpin’ In” – the station’s modern jazz outpost.

He is in no way connected with the writing and production of “IM1 . . . .” Manx Radio’s smash-hit satirical comedy.


When not at Manx Radio he lives in the cultural centre of the Island, Cronk y Voddy, with two cats, large amounts of Burgundy, parmesan, parsnips and wife Sue.

Howard can also be heard on our Sweet and Swing and Jumpin' In programmes every Friday from 9pm to 10pm.
