Robb started out in radio in London, running the pirate radio station Radio London North when he was 15. In 1970 he joined Radio Northsea International, then anchored off the Dutch coast. Robb stayed with the station on & off through to April 1974 when he joined his fellow shipmates on Radio Caroline. During this time he managed or worked with a lot of Dutch bands including Focus, Golden Earring, Earth & Fire, Kayak & Bolland & Bolland (who wrote In The Army Now).
In August 1974 commercial radio called in the shape of Radio City in Liverpool but this was short-lived as a year later he was asked to move to EMI Records working with such well known acts as The Beach Boys, Glen Campbell, Dr Hook, Kraftwerk, Natalie Cole & Tavares. The revitalisation of the Capitol Record label in the mid-seventies led Robb back to Holland where he coordinated releases for EMI product across Europe. In the late Seventies the offshore radio bug returned & he rejoined Radio Caroline as station manager & started the enormously successful Caroline Roadshow, regularly touring throughout the South East of England. In the early eighties Robb worked for Chiltern Radio in Dunstable, Mercia Sound in Coventry, BRMB Radio in Birmingham & for the offshore radio station Laser 558. This led to working on several projects for the Virgin Group including Music Box (the television based music jukebox), Radio Radio & Virgin Atlantic Airways. Along with Chris Carey (Spangles Muldoon) he launched the Radio Nova sustaining service based in Camberley. DJ’s on the station included Tony Blackburn, Paul Burnett, Mike Read & Timmy Mallett.
More recently, in 2006, Robb got together a group of local people interested in starting a community radio station. The launch of North Cotswold Community Radio was delayed because of flooding in July 2007 but live programmes started from a temporary base upstairs in the Old Police Station in Chipping Campden. Since that time Robb has presented the Unsigned Community, a conduit for unsigned musicians, singers & songwriters to get their music heard.
