About Jamie Crick
Jamie isn’t just a radio man – his career has spanned many areas of entertainment from West End musicals to football.
Jamie Crick joined Classic FM in 1993, just a year after the station began broadcasting. He had previously been working in commercial radio in south east England.;
Over the years, his Classic FM programmes have included Drivetime and Easier Breakfast. He has been hosting the lunchtime programme for the past nine years.
Jamie has presented concerts all over Britain, working with Classic FM’s partner orchestras and hosting many outdoor concerts at stately homes and castles. He presented the Sainsbury’s Youth Orchestra Series and hosts Birmingham Schools Music Service Gala events each year.
He was also involved in the record attempt to create the world’s largest orchestra with Sir Simon Rattle at the magnificent Symphony Hall in Birmingham.
As a news and talk presenter, Jamie has hosted programmes on Classic FM’s sister station station, LBC 97.3. He has also presented programmes for Spurs TV, the television channel of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
A Londoner born and bred, some of Jamie’s family come from Italy while others live in Newcastle in the North East of England.
He is a keen photographer and cyclist, campaigning to improve cycling provision in Britain and is always interested in current affairs and music.
Just like fellow Classic FM presenter John Suchet, he is a big Beethoven fan, citing Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Piano Concerto as his all-time favourite work.

When he was eleven, Jamie was cast in the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice hit musical Evita with Elaine Paige and David Essex. Instead of choosing to follow a glittering stage career, he decided on broadcasting.
