What makes you laugh?
"Anything to do with bodily functions - tragic, I know!"
What's your most embarrassing moment on air?
"Too many to mention - at least one a day - when I said Steve Redgrave had led the triumphant cock less four to victory, or when I asked a guest which tree acorns came from."
Where is your favourite place in Berkshire?
"Again far too many to choose from. Around my mum and dad's table at sunday lunch, in front of the fire with the dog and hubby in my own little cottage, by the Thames at Lower Basildon in October, on the Downs at Aldworth on Boxing Day, enjoying a roll and a pint in the garden of the Pot Kiln in Frilsham in July."
What are your most memorable jobs before working for BBC Radio Berkshire?
"Making coffee for Phil Kennedy at TV studios in London, packing batteries in a Reading warehouse, and several hellish summer spent serving cocktails at a beach bar on the Greek island of Skiathos."
What's your favourite piece of music?
"Depends on my mood - my favourite changes all the time - Coldplay and Talk at the moment, but I'm always in the mood for Dylan and Peter Paul and Mary who of course covered so many Dylan songs.
Put your feet up with Nicki Whiteman
"On a Sunday nothing beats Vivaldi's Four Seasons, or Mozart's Horn Concerto."
