About Jamie Nemeth
I’m a newly-qualified science teacher, completing a PGCE in Physics with Science at the former Swansea Metropolitan University in 2013. Before this, I studied for a degree and subsequently a PhD in Physics at Swansea University.
When not physics-ing, I can often be seen fiddling in the Swansea area. I currently play with family band The Occasional Domestics, as well as traditional Irish band Henry Marten’s Ghost. However, being a former Welsh Celtic Fiddle Champion and former accompanist to Pontardawe clog dance side Dwy Droed Chwith, I’ll happily slip in the odd Welsh dance tune whenever called to do so…
Every Wednesday (11pm-12am) and Sunday (11pm-1am), I turn my hand to broadcasting, with an eclectic live show on Off The Chart Radio. Expect to hear a little bit of nearly-new chart music, a voter-driven selection of unsigned and unheard music on The Unchart (Sunday only), and a random assortment of tracks from my diverse music collection (possibly slanting towards folk!)
A veteran of student radio, I spent many years on Swansea University’s Xtreme Radio, picking up a station award (shared with my co-presenters) in 2006. I was also one of the nominees for ‘Most Committed Member’ in 2007, although sadly I couldn’t make the Xtreme Awards that year due to dissertation pressure, so only have another member’s word for it!
As well as radio, I have a more generic media outlet in the form of this whimsical blog, featuring gig reviews, social commentary, and pieces of information that deserve to be shared rather than relegated to the depths of my brain. Here, I also rekindle the skills I gained over many years of writing articles for Swansea University’s student newspaper, The Waterfront. The blog comes under the umbrella of communications from the Nemethsphere, which includes a Facebook and Twitter feed, as well as a YouTube channel.
