Music, features and interaction. If you're talking about it, we're talking about it.
First record you bought:
"Barbados" by Typically Tropical - 7 inch single bought at Woolies bottom of King Street in Whitehaven.
Went to the university of life working in pubs and clubs in West Cumbria. Sometimes as a barman and sometimes as a DJ. I've even worked as a lumberjack. I've worked for BBC and commercial radio in various parts of the country including London, the North East and Northampton!
Best thing about working in radio:
It's a people thing really - I love talking to people.
Most interesting person you have interviewed for radio:
A woman who made it her business to have affairs with over 40 married men.
Best thing about your show:
The unpredictability of the programme - not knowing what's going to happen next, and the way that the listener can steer the programme off onto a new topic.
Person you would most enjoy being stuck in a lift with:
A lift engineer
Can't decide between Sunday Roast or Fish & Chips.
Where are you when you get most of your inspiration or creative thoughts:
Funny sayings you like to use:
I'm off to turn my bike round!
My two boys... although they're turning into young men now.... and a gold medal in ballroom dancing aged 11.
Where you go for quiet moments:
Walking next the estuary at Arnside. It's so peaceful... until the train goes across the viaduct!
Memories of school:
Being worried sick on the bus from Seascale to Egremont that I hadn't done ANY of my homework.
Any habits, annoying or otherwise:
I have this really awful habit of biting my fingernails. I wish I could stop. Any suggestions?
