"Graham Mack shows true personality and imagination, following in the tradition of great radio presenters. Some of the items were perennial concerns, or had been covered elsewhere in the news, but what this show manages to do is to reinvent them to make them engaging and fresh, and apply them directly to the local audience. Graham Mack manages to interview with real edge, while retaining his immense likeability; this is a presenter firmly on the side of the listeners."
The Sony Radio Academy Awards Judges

“When I conduct radio programming seminars, often I play several audio clips from your programme as examples for other presenters around the world. Your ability to combine preparation, surprise, listener engagement and your own life experiences makes your programme a treat to listen to.” 
Dan O’Day, Radio Consultant, Los Angeles

"He draws your ear to the radio." 
The BBC Gillard Awards Team

“Graham absolutely understands the radio medium. He’s a consummate professional, who works exceptionally hard to produce a great show.”
