About the programme
I love being on the radio in the morning. We're all awake
and ready for a new day. Perhaps you're still digesting the day's news (which
we'll help with!) and ready to start listening and talking - two of my
The show is a place to hear and tell stories and they
can be about anything - it's totally over to you. We also want to celebrate
life in Wiltshire and learn things together. I'm always amazed by the stories
that listeners call in with - many of which we'll go out and investigate. These
can be stories about the great things in life, the challenges or the quirks.
You'll also hear from interesting people visiting our
county, including well-known names and faces.
As a teenager, in-between going to see live music and
tearing around Swindon, I started working at BBC Wiltshire by volunteering to
make tea for Sandy Martin at the weekend. After proving my tea making skills, I
progressed to cappuccinos. I soon proved to managers that I had an extensive
enough range of footwear to report on rural affairs in Wiltshire, so with
wellington boots at the ready, I got to meet Wiltshire's diverse farming
community and presented Wild About Wiltshire.
I'm so pleased to be on BBC Wiltshire between 0900 and
1200 - it's when I'd be listening to the radio if I were at home.
