With a deep expertise in Law and Broadcast Technology- Hannah was an early internet radio broadcast pioneer. He developed one of the first net-based radio stations, creating new compression techniques to get around issues on the internet in the 1990s. The stations he created were heard in 53 different countries, including China.

A talent for business management and a grasp of technology has not diminished Hannah’s passion for entertaining an audience. He has hosted and co- hosted a string of hit shows including:

  • The Big H Radio Show – 11 years syndicated across Radio
  • The Sunday Supplement – 2 years on On Digital Radio Europe

  • The Magic of the Musicals’ (co-produced) with TV and Radio Broadcaster, Lesley-Anne Knight.

As if Radio Broadcasting was not enough, enjoys live performance. It is 50 years since, a shy ten-year-old overcame his nerves to deliver a one verse solo in a singing competition. From there he went on to join an orchestra (French Horn/Timpani/Trumpet) and even a school after hours Jazz group (Trombone/Drums). By the time Hannah was 16 he was part of local drama group and by 18 he was supplementing his day job on the circuit as a comedian and club compere.

Hannah is a capable vocalist, who particularly enjoys Swing and Jazz. His set is peppered with Show Tunes and a Sammy Davis Junior vibe. Hannah has semi-professionally sung at Clubs and major venues all over the world (particularly Italy). Best Selling Author, and long-term friend Adrian Webster has described him as fearless. Alongside, the business and broadcasting, he has made time to take part in semi-professional musicals, perform on Cruise ships and support Charity concerts. Spain still has a vibrant live music circuit and prior to the Pandemic Hannah was guesting at venues along the Costa Brava indulging a love of live performance. His capabilities on stage naturally feed into his business life where he has often been engaged as a Conference Facilitator or after dinner speaker.
