success story Stephanie May

Curved top

Since leaving Access to music 14 years ago, Stephanie May has had an incredible journey.

Stephanie studied Music Business at Birmingham and her whirlwind journey has led her to being the first female Head of Music of a national radio station.

While working as a music retailer, Stephanie became interested in the business side – the process that brought music into the store, making someone want to buy it and create memories whilst listening to it.

‘At Access, I learnt every step of the way’.

She was offered her first radio job at Kerrang! Radio as part of the Breakfast team. She then headed to New York, to spend the summer working for the company Rocks Off, before coming back to the UK and heading down to London.

Stephanie then spent four years in her second radio position at XFM, before becoming the Head of Music at Virgin Radio!

‘Just add passion and common sense and you have yourself a winning formula’.
