Some of the people we've had the pleasure of working with.


Al Galpin - "Al Bear"

Hi, I'm Al, thanks for checking out Bear Cave Studios. This is where I showcase all my various projects, and potentially help you with your own projects.

I studied Radio Production as part of my degree in Media Studies & Business Management from the University of Manchester, have been a presenter on Hospital Radio, student radio and local commercial radio in the North West of England.

I've been podcasting since 2007 on various shows, launched a charity podcasting event in 2017 and launched my own radio station in 2020. I also have syndicated radio shows currently airing on over 50 radio stations across the world.

As well as radio and podcasts, I’m also interested in football, graphic design and wrestling. I’m keen on comics, country music and chocolate as well as burgers, baseball and bourbon. And apparently alliteration.

I’m a husband to Kitty, dad to Hunter and a Pointless finalist.
