A former Desborough schoolboy was given an hour-long slot on popular radio station KISS on Sunday.
DJ Gary Moore, 26, has been behind the decks since he was 14 and turned professional at 18 when he used to play at The Bear in the High Street.
The lifelong Maidonian, of Courtlands, has played at most of the clubs around Maidenhead before he branched out to London last year.
He submitted a playlist to KISS's DJ competition and was shocked when they chose to feature it as the Midnight Mix on Sunday. He went into the station's London studios to record an interview which was broadcast with his mix, which included chart, R&B and house tunes.
The former Oldfield Primary School pupil said: "KISS has six million listeners a week and I'm on their website now for the next seven days. It was amazing to be in the actual studio where all the celebrities have been."
Currently playing regular sets at Rehab club in Croydon, Gary said the show was his biggest achievement to date.
"It's a great achievement because it's the biggest radio station," he said. "Now I want to be on KISS all the time."
