Zero Radio Spotlight – Ian

This Months Zero Radio Presenter Spotlight is Ian Reading

Ian Reading is a successful local business person, successful dj and a well-known face among the music scene.

The early days – Ian was the driving force behind Essex’s biggest night club named ‘Zero 6’ in Southend on Sea, Essex back in the late 1970’s through to the late 1980’s as nightclub management & DJ. As well as succeeding in Nightclub Management, Ian has dj’ed at most nightclubs across Essex, Kent and London during the elusive soul and dance music scene working with top dj’s, artists and bands of the era.

Now Co-owner of Zero Radio, the venture began almost 10 years ago combined with the very successful radio show aptly named ‘Zero Magic now rebranded to The Ian Reading Radio Show’.  The challenge for Ian was to bring the memories flooding back every Sunday from 7pm (UK) to remember the good times of the Zero 6 nightclub and that era of music, the people and the scene at the time and make the show exactly what it says on the tin. The show was recently rebranded in to the ‘Ian Reading Radio Show’, and is neatly packed with jazz funk, soul and good time dance music from the 70’s and 80’s but to ensure that the radio show continues to be the most successful listened to radio show on Zero Radio, Ian also offers modern soul as an extra. You have a chance to check out the crackles of the vinyl with a feature during the show titled ‘the vinyl vaults’ where by an actual vinyl record is chosen as a favourite and played during the show!


These are going to be a series featured artists for a Sunday night. With the passing of Aretha Franklin, Ian will be offering you the chance to celebrate the lives of the greatest soul artist who sadly are no longer with us.

Ian will be offering a very special series shows , commencing SUNDAY 2nd SEPTEMBER @ 7pm exclusive to ZERORADIO.CO.UK

Check out THE IAN READING RADIO SHOW – Every Sunday 7pm – 9pm on
