Every Sunday morning from 6am til 9am, Clare Catford brings you a programme dedicated to faith in Berkshire, including the Bishop of Reading's audio blog and passionate, interesting guests each week.
Clare Catford is joined on air every Sunday morning from 6am til 9am by guests from different faiths in Berkshire, to discuss their spirituality and the stories making the news over the weekend.
Clare has lead a colourful life and her show is all about honesty, as the studio guests, callers and often Clare herself divulge in up-front and no-holes-barred chat.
Call 0845 900 1041 to get involved with the show.
What makes you laugh?
"Dad's Army - I love it - you meet Captain Mainwarings all the time. Plus the absurdity, sometimes, of television/broadcasting - some of the things I used to do at GMTV made me, frankly look plain daft, but I loved it!"
What’s your most embarassing moment on air?
"Wearing a fairy outfit for GMTV and reporting from a Christmas tree forest - I had to pee from nerves before we went live, and squatting in the snow in minus 4 degrees is no laughing matter."
Where is your favourite place in Berkshire?
"Shiplake Lock, no question - although I know that's in Oxfordshire - I have many happy memories there walking the dog and kissing my first boyfriend by the lock gates. In Berkshire itself - Prospect Park - where I came 33rd in the county cross country championship - no, not out of 33, 150 actually!"
What are your most memorable jobs before working for BBC Radio Berkshire?
"Loads - I seem to have worked everywhere - GMTV for the sheer wackiness of the work, Presenting LBC phone-ins alongside Douglas Cameron, I learned so much from him. And I loved hosting Five Live at weekends - and then there was Channel 4 News - I could go on. Local Radio though is so immediate - and it's great to get that instant feedback."
What’s your favourite piece of music?
"A hard one, but it has to be 'The Way it Is' Bruce Hornsby and the Range - always loved it."
