Frank Mcweeny

CTC Resident DJ and all round good guy

Listen
Frank ‘French Toast’ McWeeny has been defining his path as a radio presenter and club DJ ever since he was old enough to get into a studio. His early love of funk, disco and soul was discovered rooting through his dad’s vinyl collection, and that love now pervades not only his selections but his outlook too. Frank takes to everything he does, in the recording studio and the DJ booth, with a joie de vivre that’s utterly infectious. Half English, half French, ‘Frenglish’ Frank learned early that the joys of life and music were best shared on an international scale. Cutting his teeth on local radio in his French hometown, Rennes during his teenage years, he went on to take UK student radio by storm with his groove, disco and funk-infused House music show French Toast. This saw him handed a Gold Student Radio Award for his programming by none other than Annie Mac (BBC Radio 1), and nominated in the Rising Star category at the UK Radio Academy Awards. Subsequent work with the legendary Gilles Peterson gave him his blueprint, and after establishing French Toast Radio across London’s diverse networks, he took it to the global stage, attracting new listeners across four continents and a succession of time zones. The global recognition of the show has seen Frank recently team up with global dance music magazine DJ Mag to offer a new underground radio show for the UK & Japan. Keeping a foot at home, he also boasts a weekly slot on pioneering digital station Amazing Radio, broadcast across the British Isles every Sunday evening. Amongst these domestic & international efforts, he’s found time to step into the guest mix on BBC Radio 1Xtra, Ibiza Sonica, Beijing Metro Radio and Japan’s InterFM 897.
