Who is Steve Folland?

Steve's been waking people up in Hertfordshire for years - his first job was as a milkman and on the radio he's been doing it since 2001. He's a presenter, producer, writer and very good cake maker/eater. He's married and spends his afternoons on Daddy Day Care duty with his son.


Birthplace? Enfield's Chase Farm Hospital


School Nickname? Fraggle (see my dancing)


Favourite film? Bugsy Malone - oh come on! little cars for little people, splurge guns, how much better would life be if Fat Sam's was just down the road?..


Favourite TV shows? Sopranos, 24, The Apprentice, Modern Family, Grey's Anatomy, TV Burp, True Blood, Masterchef, The Thick Of It, Wallander, Luther, Zingzillas


Favourite band? Belle And Sebastian, Elbow, Blur


What is your favourite town in Hertfordshire? Bishop's Stortford. All that lovely parkland down by the river, all the old pubs, the market with best locally made Victoria sponges ever!..


If you were not a presenter, what job would you want to have? A Dancer (what?)


What is the most you've ever spent on a pair of shoes? £90. They were for my wedding though and were half price. Half price!! Someone would pay £180?! They were so posh, each shoe came in it's own velvet bag!


What is your favourite bar or restaurant in Hertfordshire? Have you seen that place on Bridge Street in Hitchin? It's called "Just Desserts". Guess what they sell? No starters. No mains. Just Desserts! Amazing. It stays open late, looks really cosy inside, the staff are lovely and they serve the best coffee and cakes/waffles/crepes/apple pie etc. Incredible. What a wonderful world. If you're the sort of person who when at a restaurant looks straight at the dessert section, you need to go. It's so much better than going to a kebab shop after a night in The George. For real food (BOO!) I love Baan Thitiya in Bishop's Stortford: amazing Thai food - and they bow to me when I walk in, which is what should happen in every place I enter really, so well done them for starting the fashion for it.


Who's the most famous person you've ever met? Not sure..  Lewis Hamilton? I interviewed him when he was about 14 and he said he was going to be an F1 driver and as he left I thought, yeah right. But you see! It can happen! And darrh! We could have become friends and see there's a lesson in there somewhere! Also I liked Fern Britton the best. She spoon fed me Guinness mixed in a tin of baked beans. Genuinely.


What are your favourite songs on your Ipod? Elbow's 'Powder Blue', Curtis Mayfield's 'Move On Up', Divine Comedy's 'National Express', Aberfeldy's 'Love Is An Arrow', Lisa Hannigan's 'I Don't Know', Foster The People's 'Pumped Up Kicks' and the Sesame Street theme tune. 


The gadget I use the most is? Hmm, a tie between my iPhone, Sky+ and my laptop. But I'd love it to be my ice cream maker.
