Matthew Haddon


Name: Matthew Haddock.

Birthplace: Kettering General.

Describe yourself in 3 words: Paul Haddock's son.

Give us an interesting fact about yourself: I'm allergic to bananas.

What is your favourite song of all time and why?: Surf's Up by The Beach Boys, it feels too good to be made by humans, it's so beautiful and mysterious in ways that no other song is. The lyrics perfectly reflect the doomed optimism of 1960s America, and the fact that it was never properly finished makes it even more heartbreaking. It's beyond words honestly, I can't do it justice, you should just go out and listen to it. (Just so you know, it has nothing to do with surfing).

Describe your ideal night out/in: In a darkened room, watching a long Blu-Ray.

What do you love about Corby?: The streets at night look gorgeous.

What is your favourite place in Corby?: Home.

What is your favourite part of being involved with Corby Radio?: I really enjoy helping out local bands on the Live and Local show every Saturday. It's great to get a look into the Corby music scene.
