In 2003 Kingsmill was promoted to the position of Music Director after the retirement of Arnold Frolows, who had been in the position since Double Jay's inception in 1975. As a result he has cut back on his on-air shifts and only presents the new music show.
Kingsmill is the author of The J-Files Compendium, a collection of music interviews, lists and trivia sourced from The J-Files.
Behind Roy and HG, Kingsmill is the stations longest serving presenter.
