About your Show:
What’s hot on your lips? What new bands or acts are in need of having more recognition for their musical creations? I will be inviting new talent on to the air waves. Finding out what inspires them, the story behind them and where they want to be in the future. I want listeners to give me their feedback and to point me in the direction of any bands or acts that have stood out to them.
Among all this I will be playing a few classics that I have either grown up loving or recently discovered myself whether they be old or new.
I have been in the music industry for some time now as a performing artist. I am still active in singing and songwriting and am working in new tracks all the time. I have always been drawn to melodies and vocals and love the emotions that a single song can bring out in a person and the effect it can have on your mood whatever that may be.
I know that for myself writing is a way of self soothing. Listening to music is just as important. Finding that track that you can play everyday for the rest of your life and never get tired of it.

I was born in Kenya, [arguably the most beautiful country in the world and the cradle of human beings… I wish to believe that the Garden of Eden was partially in Kenya.]
I emigrated to UK in 2000 and have been here since. I am happily married to the MOST BEAUTIFUL & INTELLIGENT woman in my world. We have 4 children [a Prince & 3 Princesses].
Although I was born in a Christian home, I never really understood why that was important. When I came to UK, I struggled with mental health issues and I reverted to one of the things I learnt from my grandmother, PRAYER.
I can vividly remember coming home one day and told my wife that I am now a converted Christian and will no longer be the same man again. Although she gave me space, she challenged me with difficult questions including why I think Jesus is the ONLY way.
Although I perceived the challenging questions as persecution, after all I was a ‘baby’ Christian, I started researching the differences in other religious/faith systems and I was amazed at my discovery. Many people say that most faiths are fundamentally similar but differ superficially. But on the contrary I discovered that they actually are fundamentally different and superficially similar if at all and Christianity is Different in EVERY way.
Over the past 15 years, I have been involved in various businesses, trained hundreds of people gain life skills and basic business skills. I am currently taking a BEd degree in the University of Hertfordshire and I continue to pursue my real passion to empower and equip individuals leave more fulfilled lives through my Success Mindset coaching & workshops.

Rewind my life to 1977, I was a club DJ at a small club in Tampa Florida. I collected records hand over fist of the best classic disco that anyone would dance too. I fell into the job one fateful night when the regular DJ was stuck in Atlanta thank god I got the experience from him to fill in for a great night of dancing and lights.

This comedy show aims to keep listeners tuned in by helping them to escape from the working week with content that is both side-splittingly funny and thought-provokingly intriguing. From playing on-air radio games like 'Fill in the blank, you blanking little blank' to, debating whether social media is taking over young people's lives, this show wants to interact with the audience of Stevenage. With this in mind, the show will constantly investigate the latest news in the town, including looking at the football teams around Hertfordshire including Stevenage FC and Hitchin Town FC. Original, silly, hilarious and informative are just a few words future listeners will be using to describe Sessions with Sean Fitzgerald on SG1 Radio.
Hi, I'm Sean and you're probably already reading this in a radio broadcaster's voice. If you are not, then that's absolutely fine as well. Anyway! I'm 25 years old and I've lived in Stevenage for nearly all of my life. Admittedly, I did briefly tear myself away from the town to live in Leicester to study at university and to work for the county's award winning radio station Demon FM. My love for radio hasn't stopped from that moment and since then, I have gone on to commentate on football and rugby at Welford Road stadium, interview Teddy Sheringham and Claudio Ranieri, but most importantly, host radio-style game shows like 'fill in the blank, you blanking little blank' on podcasts like Sessions available on SoundCloud.
