Less than a year later, he started a new cooperation with BEST RADIO 92.6 (Athens’ avant garde radio station) where he has been hosting/producing a nightly show on weekdays from 10 to 12 pm driven by fresh ideas and new concepts.

During his collaboration with “Nitro Radio” and “Best Radio” he has been able to establish his immaculate taste is music; this is probably why his show is rated among the top late night shows on the FM dial.

“La Suite“ – a stylish CD collection inspired by the hippest hotels, originally conceptualized and brought to life in December of 2003, has sold more than 156.000 units to date!
